Gor Mahia coach Frank Nuttall has lauded his players for shrugging aside the congested fixtures and winning their third successive match in the Kenya Premier League.
“We had a very tough match against Bandari on Thursday and we knew we were coming to another tough match in a very short time with congested fixtures but I feel we did well. We played well on an overall and we got the three points and that is a very good thing for the team.”
“The players were well motivated and we gave 100% in the game and it is now three wins in three matches but we will not get over ourselves. We want to take one match at a time and now we shift focus to our next game on Wednesday,” he said to supersport.com
Nuttall lauded Khalid Auch for his goal saying he has been working with Aucho on shooting during training and it has paid off.
“Since he joined us, he has been taking shots from five or ten yards out and scoring in training and we have been encouraging him to do so. Today he gave us the lead from something he has been doing regularly in training and I must admit, it was a good strike”, he added
Gor Mahia were ruthless says Mururi
Chemelil coach Mike Mururi has admitted that his side were beaten by a fitter more efficient side. He blames the lack of competitive games.
“Lack of competitive games in a long time also played a part in our defeat. Gor Mahia has been playing continental matches as opposed to us. They looked fitter than us and were ruthless. It was obvious something was wrong with my boys.” he said to goal.com
Fans will remember that this is the same Mururi who last season said Gor Mahia only won because they are helped by referees.
