Gor Mahia take on Nakuru Top Fry

Oboya named in starting line-up.

Gor Mahia will take on Nakuru Top Fry this Wednesday. The match kicks off at 4pm at the City stadium.

It was against Gor Mahia that Top Fry won their first league match. The 2-0 win for the Nakuru side. came as a shocker since at the time, they were at the bottom of the league and had lost most of their matches heavily.

Gor Mahia will thus be gunning for a measure of payback. But they will have to play without the Ugandan duo of Godffrey Walusimbi and Geoffrey Kizito, both of whom have been invited by the Uganda Cranes for a friendly against Malawi.

But Gor Mahia have been slowly clawing their way back to form after several hiccups that occurred during the month of May and June. With Timothy Otieno gaining confidence and Blackberry slowly round back into form, Gor Mahia will have good options upfront even in the absence of Dan Sserunkuma who is still in Denmark. Still a far cry from his devastating form in 2010 but coach Williamson has seen enough about him to give him a nod. In midfield Gor Mahia will have the option of Collins Okoth who has not missed a beat since he left the club in 2011 as well as Erick Ochieng whose goal last weekend set Gor Mahia on the path to victory.

Perhaps one worrying aspect for Gor Mahia is that a number of their players will be involved in the Harambee stars friendly against Burundi on Tuesday, most notably David Owino who was voted man of the match last weekend. But Gor Mahia has enough depth that coach Williamson should be able to give Calabar a rest.

Starting 1X: 1 Fredrick Onyango (GK),27. Simon Pierre, 18 Harun Shakava, 5. Musa Mohammed, 14. Kennedy Opiyo, 10. Daniel Onyango,  17 Eric Ochieng, 6 Collins Okoth, 20 Joseph Kariuki, 8 Timothy Otieno, 30. Patrick Oboya

Substitute: 16 David Juma (GK). 15. David Owino, 11. Innocent Mutiso, 21. Bruno Charles, 12. Arthur Ssemazi, 7. Simon Mburu, 13. Herbert Kopany

    Its been a long struggle for Blackberry. But I see his form coming back. He needs confidence. He must be doing well in training. Thats why Williamson is giving him playing time. When he scores his first goal, the floodgates will reopen. Ngojea tu.

    It seems Mr. Oswozo is quite disappointed to see Blackberry getting back to his form. Did you place a bet which you are about to lose? Ama ni your usual jealousy?

    Meanwhile, I pray and pray hard that coach Bobby does not start with any player involved in the national team set up. He must trust the other players.

    @Oswozo, it seems only you understand your comments. Look in-words my brother instead of rushing to blame. How come everyone else is wrong about your statement. Buy specs so you can watch these matches well brother!!

    Comrade @Oswozo Moziek you have a very good name and do like it the same way i do with @Paw Akuche.
    @Paw Akuche how “bad” is that name of “@Oswozo Moziek”? I would like to know more otherwise we should thank our comrade for being bold enough and honorably adopting the “good” name willingly.

    Congrats for the win! We now need to maintain that momentum. The only challenge is the number of injuries we are getting
