Despite dropping crucial points in the last two league games, Gor Mahia coach Steve Polack remains confident that his side will retain the league title.
I know we have not won in the last two matches but it is not true to say that it will be difficult for us to retain the league. We still have many matches and I’m only concentrating on my team not our opponents so that we can achieve our aim,” Polack said to the Nation
Though Gor still sits top of the log, a win for Tusker (second) and Kakamega Homeboyz (third) next weekend would cut their lead to just a point.
Polack rejected the idea that either he or the team is under pressure.
“I have no pressure because in football you can either get a win, draw or a loss. We have not won twice but there are many matches remaining, we still have a chance to redeem ourselves,” added Polack.
On the Western stima match, Polack said that the foul should not have been awarded because Omalla was offiside
“First of all, it was not a penalty because their player was already in an offside position,”
Before the red card we were the better team, we had seized the game and were in cruise control, we had even taken the lead in the opening minutes, from my eyes, from everyone in the technical bench.
“We were the best side against XI men but our game went down after the sending off.
“I am happy with the way my players responded after going down to ten men, the desire, the fighting spirit and how they managed to keep the score at 1-0 before Stima scored in the 68th minute.
“I have now realised it is not easy to play with ten men, it was tough for us after Onyango went off, and it is tough to play with fewer players but I want to say I am happy for my team and very happy for the draw.”
Gor Mahia will play Naivas FC in the opening round of the Betway cup
