Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr said he believes the team can reclaim the KPL title should they put up the same kind of performance in the remaining matches of the league.
“Right character is important and we showed it in both halves of our match against Nakumatt.” he said to the Standard.
Kerr was happy with the way the team was able to convert defence into offence rapidly. The second goal was a result of a counter attack that saw a Kogalo player make a goal line save from a set piece which was then turned into a counter attack that Blackberry finished.
” Apart from defending set-pieces well, we dominated possession and were dangerous on counter-attacks. Our focus is to win one match at a time and hopefully, the league at the end of the season,” he said to the Standard.
Kerr admitted that his side struggled to break down a determined Nakumatt side, which looked determined to get something out of the match.
“In the end, it was all about tenacity. That won the game for us. Our opponents looked determined and I must admit they were really good and it had to take something special to beat them,” he said.
The one area that Kerr knows he will need to work on is the attack which has become blunt.
We wasted a lot of chances in the first half, but Nakumatt really opened up the game in the second half and we had a better performance. I think we could have done better in the final third, with the kind of chances we created.” he told the KPL site.
