Rama Salim’s close range tap in in the 29thminute was all Gor Mahia needed to register a win against relegation threatened Oserian at the City Stadium in Nairobi on Wednesday evening. Gor Mahia showed signes of fatigue after previously playing on Friday and they dried down especially in the second half.
K’Ogalo started the match brightly in their characteristic fluid attacking style. Oserian were solid in defense and they did not allow balls into their final quarter. Oserian had their first chance of the match in the 15th minute when Jerry Onyango came to the rescue of his team.
Joseph Kariuki was let through by James Macharia after a poor pass from David Owino. However, Kariuki could not lutch on to the ball faster and Jerry slid in to pick it before he landed on it.
In the 23rd minute, Kelvin Omondi had his header go wide after a nice cross from Moses Odhiambo. They continued asking the questions and they finally got the answer in the 29th minute through prolific scorer Rama Salim. Rama tapped in the ball after keeper George Ochieng’ failed to hold on to a shot from Nasio Solomon.
Rama had a nother chance in the 39th minute from a cleverly picked Moses Odhiambo corner, but he shot wide with the defenders nowehere in sight.
In the second half, Gor seemed a little tired down and Oserian played more of the ball. However, they lacked the cutting edge in front of goal and most of their build ups were cut out by the Gor defense.
Coach Sammy Pamzo Omollo was a frustrated man on the touchline as he got frustrated with the many chances that blew off their faces.
In the dying minutes of the match, Gor came back to life for some moments with substitute Moses Odhiambo shooting on target but keeper Ochieng saved the ball for a corner.
The loss sees Oserian’s fight against relegation dealt a major blow as they stick to bottom on 19 points while Gor move to 5th above Ulinzi on 37 points.
