True to their character when playing against Gor Mahia, Nzoia United proved a tough nut to crack. It was a difficult encounter against a wily Nzoia side that was gunning for an upset.
“It was not easy against Nzoia Sugar. It was a very tough match because they (Nzoia) played a very good and tactical game. We needed to change our tactics so as to contain them and I am very impressed because my players put up a very spirited performance.” said Ze Maria to goal.com
Ze Maria is happy that Gor Mahia had the resilience to hold onto their lead after they scored an early goal and fought tooth and nail to maintain their lead.
“Remember we had to protect a slim lead because Nzoia looked like they could hit back and level matters. My players responded well to keep the lead to the end. It was a good game from my players that takes us to the top of the table. They (players) deserve to be thanked because they managed to maintain the pressure from fans and also media.” he continued.
Scorer Meddie Kagere is now third in the goal-scorers chart with four goals, two behind the leader: Stephen Waruru of Ulinzi Stars.
Gor Mahia take on Thika United at Nyayo stadium on Sunday in their next match.
