Coach Kerr springs to Oluoch’s defence

Gor Mahia’s first choice custodian, Boniface Oluoch has been under fire from fans after his howler cost Gor Mahia a goal against Kariobangi Sharks on Sunday. He mistimed what seemed like a feeble attempt from a free-kick and allowed the ball to slip through.

Some fans have accused Oluoch of being too non-chalant. This goal however was not caused by non-chalance. He simply mistimed the ball and did not expect it to bounce in front of him.

Some fans are concerned because as the match against Esperance approaches, they remember that Gor Mahia conceded three goals to Esperance at Nyayo stadium in 2014. And all three goals were due to defensive and goakeeping errors.

However coach Kerr has defended his goalkeeper.

“The bounce of the ball cost us a goal but his amazing save when we leading 2-1 was magnificent. I have three fantastic goalkeepers.” said Kerr to

  1. Oluoch deserves absolute castigation for the school boy mistake. By the time the coach realises this,the damage from Esperance will be too much to recover from.No wonder he is no longer the preferred shot stopper in the national team.

  2. Totally agree with the coach.Pete & Shaban have made tremendous improvement and its only a matter of time b4 one of them seriously challenges Bony for No.1 shirt, For now I think Bony still tops despite the blunder.As For Joash, He only needs a little polishing bt he is a very good defender,Very soon he will be the cornerstone of our defence.He is tough & fearless unlike momanyi and oluoch who can be intimidated making them panic.Not long ago Shaka was very shaky, panicked a lot, Joash I think is more confident and can only get better. The kind of defender Kogalo needs.Watch the space.
