Gor forward Timothy Otieno scored a brace in a span of six minutes to help K’Ogalo to a routine victory, a result that maintains new coach Dylan Kerr’s 100 per cent start with the team in his third outing.

Otieno’s first came on 22 minutes, when he directed a Jacques Tuyisenge cross from the right-hand side past a stranded Muhoroni keeper Gradus Ochieng with his first touch.

The second arrived six minutes later as Otieno again found himself one-on-one with Ochieng’ after a free-flowing move that had involved Tuyisenge yet again. But this time round, the Harambee Stars trialist directed his effort into the far right-hand corner of the goal.

“I enjoyed every moment of the game because everything I tried came off well,” an excited Otieno told Nation Sport after the match. “I thank the new coach for giving me this chance to lead the attack today.”
