Gor Mahia coach Bobby Williamson has revealed his delight at having Ugandan striker Danny Sserunkuma back in his squad after his bid to secure professional football in Eastern Europe fell through.
The diminutive reigning Kenya Premier League player of the year, featured as a substitute for 30 minutes in Gor’s 3-0 victory over Muhoroni Youth that maintained their lead at the top of the Kenya Premier Leagues standings.
“We are very glad to have Danny back. He is going to give us more options up front and that is what we need at this point in time,” remarked Williamson.
“We are obviously disappointed for him that he did not secure the move he wanted and the opportunity to make more money but I talked to him last Friday and he is entirely focused on helping the club achieve its objectives for the remainder of the season,” added the Scot who gave Sserunkuma his international bow with the Uganda Cranes late last year.
Sserunkuma’s presence was enough to inspire Gor to their biggest winning margin since Williamson took over as Kevin Omondi’s tap-in in the first half and a second half thumping header from in form Ugandan defender Israel Emuge and another from Mungai Kiongera secured the win for Gor against hard fighting Muhoroni.
“It was good to score three goals. We had enough time to work on a few things and I was happy to see them come off in a real match situation.” observed Williamson.
“more importantly we are still keeping clean sheets, this was our fifth in six matches and that makes it very difficult for us to get beaten, so scoring goals now will give us a good chance of winning many more matches,” he opined.
With ten matches to go Gor look every part a firm contender to lift this years KPL title and end their eighteen year wait to be crowned champions but their Scottish tactician was not willing to look that far ahead
“There are still plenty more matches to be played and we cannot afford to look beyond our next match. The most important thing is to keep winning every match and see how that leaves us at the end of the season,” he said.
