Gor Mahia 1 SoNy Sugar 0

Dan Ssserunkuma and Geoffrey Kizito take on SoNy Sugar

Gor Mahia returned to domestic action with a 1 – 0 win over SoNy Sugar in the two teams’ Kenyan Premier League (KPL) match played at the Nairobi City Stadium on Sunday 24 August, a win that was heavily aided by the visitors’ keeper Lucas Indeche’s 57th minute mistake.

Timothy Otieno got the first sight on goal for the KPL champions on the fifth minute when he robbed Alfred Onyango of the ball but he took too long to make a decision and his eventual option of passing to his strike partner Dan Sserunkuma came late and Onyango recovered to clear.

Gor Mahia threat

Action was stuck in the visitors’ goal area and Indeche was called upon on 16 minutes to smother George Odhiambo’s free kick after he was fouled by Andrew Anthony 20 yards out and four minutes later Harun Shakava’s header from Kennedy Ayong’s corner flew wide.

Gor Mahia skipper Jerim Onyango pulled a great save on 22 minutes when in a one on one situation with Edwin Oduor – the striker shot well but Jerim just took a timely touch and Harun Shakava raced in to clear the danger.

Wasted chances

Five minutes to the break, Timothy Otieno had another good chance after getting to the end of George Odhiambo’s cross but he blasted wide when he just had Indeche to beat and just before half time Eric Ochieng fed Sserunkuma in the box but Indeche made a decent save.

The ensuing surge forward saw Andrew Anthony well poised and he managed to beat Jerim Onyango as the Gor Mahia defence went missing but the SoNy Sugar man’s touch was too heavy and the ball sailed clear of any danger.

Moment of madness

Indeche’s moment of madness came on 56 minutes when he handled the ball, placed it down and picked it again to give away a free kick in the box and Geoffrey Kizito stepped forward to steer the ball home for the only goal of the game.

Gor Mahia had the chance to double the advantage after Kizito picked out Sserunkuma with a great pass on the 74th minute but the league’s top scorer, faced with just Indeche, went for power and lacked precision and his attempt flew high.

The result saw Gor Mahia reclaim top spot with two matches in hand and with 41 points while SoNy Sugar stays rooted in ninth place with 28 points after 22 matches.

    Something need to be done to make the team reap from Otienos obvious potential as a strike striker, he is taking too long to settle.

    I think youngstars shud be given long term contracts like 4yrs so that if they r to leave K’ogalo shud have something gud. what hapened btwn Kevo & Gor shud never hapen. I believe Timothy otieno will be a great player & if we cant tie him to k’ogalo then he will be a top striker in kenya but we will not get anything. He is still young & he will be a top striker. The world over their must be players who have long contracts in big clubs like K’Ogalo.Congrats boys & keep it up even if Bobby will not be their

    Congrats to the boys. No sponsors, no allowances, low class players, inept EC and tactless TB and we still beat established clubs. Let those who are known to whine over nothing continues doing so as Kogallo moves on.
    @Baba Travis its refreshing to have you back. Karibu sana.
    For God and my beloved club – Kogallo

    Albert Kosero, u must withdraw that statement.K’ogalo is u, me, EC, players & TB. U cannot call our players classless. U cant call our TB tactless yet Gor mahia have only lost three matches in TPL. Do u know that many players in TPL wud love 2 play 4 GM. & do u know that playing 4 GM is very hard due to pressure from pple like u. so u withdraw & apologise to the entire k’ogalo fratanity .It is only in k’ogalo where we’ve players who’re going to play Afcon qualifiers.

    very very happy, thank you guys, surely the league is now ours to lose. leading the pack with two games less, thats beautiful, we are taking it in style.for FKF, why destabilise kogalo by snatching our coach with just three match to the end of the league, dont they know that the stability of national team is pegged to the success of clubs. shame on them.

    @michael odhiambo ogolo I think you didn’t understand @kosero’s message. Please read his previous blogs and you will get what he means.
    On the issue of a new coach if I had the power I would poach Okumbi from Mathare. I watched them outplay the moneybags from ingwe in terms of quality play and team work. The big issue is, will the ambitious Ouna and BW allow him to perform. How about some of the busybodies in the EC? Will they allow him? Otherwise given a free hand he can bring back our flair as we march towards another title

    @Michael Odhiambo Ogolo you have misunderstood Albert Kosero. If am to read in between his statement he really meant the opposite. Actually his tirade are directed to non other OGANGO TRAILER. Now let ZICO come back and guide us to the title.

    Baba Travis karibu sana and thanks God for your successful medical trip in the US. We are alive and kicking as usual. We do play our role as usual and now we want ZICO back since he has reformed. He is the best man to take GOR. He is a guy who understands GOR philosophy and the good thing is that we know how to discipline him when need arises.

    @ Michael-Jakampala is “speaking” in jest.
    That’s some GM fans for you. A narrow 1-0 victory (don’t get me wrong GM winning is always welcome) is over hyped to the extent that the all is now rosy.
    Vested interests use such to keep the dirt mound steadily building under the carpet.
    Right now CECAFA debacle (learning experience the champs of the supposedly elite league in the region, from a coach who has lifted the Senior challenge trophy! really?,) unpaid wages & allowances are all forgotten.
    As Dinga puts it these fans, EC and players feed off each other as GM stagnates regionally & continentally.

    LOOK AT EL MERREIK AND US IN THE ’80s and NOW.

    Really happy to see that Baba Travis is back with us and we continue wish him fully recovery.
    All said thanks to the team & TB for the victory will take them whichever way they come especially in the circumstances of outstanding salaries/allowances.

    @Michael, at least the fans @Kosero was refering to have now availed themselves. If we lose we are bunch of losers, if we win it’s a narrow win. That’s the typical Gor fan for you. Now one of their pet subjects, BW is gone,they must be a happy lot though some have no suggestion on who can take over. You ask them they will tell you that there are so many coaches in Serbia, Croatia etc. To pay these coaches they will tell you that they cannot contribute to 350100 because their money will be ‘eaten’ by the same people who are actually depleting their resources to run the club. These diversity in fan base is what is actually running and dragging the cllub all at the same time. I still wonder if the crowd that cheered BW yesterday was hired or it’s true a good number of fans appreciated him

    @Michael Odhiambo Ogolo at least you have gotten the meaning of my post. Thanks to my respected bloggers – @Dan Original, @OGANGO TRAILER, and @ODUOR12. I therefore need not to withdraw and apologize.

    @ Dan Original can OKUMBI with stand the pressure from the ever demanding GM fans like you and me? The answer is a big NO. We should not mourn BW departure my comrades since it was bound to happen anyway, with or without Harambee stars offer.

    At least BW has parted ways with GOR diplomatically.We just need to accept his decision and move ON.Everybody in GM is looking for a greener pasture and BW is not exempted.Even AR should plot to unseat president Sam from FKF top leadership.
