Gor train eyes on Sony ahead of CECAFA
Gor Mahia will be looking to head into the CECAFA Kagame Cup with a boost of confidence by opening up a 15 point gap on top of the Kenyan Premier League standings when they face Sony Sugar this afternoon in Kisumu.
K’Ogalo are 12 points ahead of second placed Sofapaka who have played two matches more and a win in Kisumu will see them move to 49 points pending their Mashemeji Derby match against AFC Leopards.
“It is a very tough match because we are off a very tough week. This is our third game in less than a week and sometimes it is difficult to get the players working at their optimum. I will try out a new system of play with some different players and see how it works,” the tactician said.
The players have only trained for one day after a protest over unpaid allowances saw them boycott training on Wednesday. Nonetheless, Kerr will be hoping that little distraction will not affect them.
“It is not something good at all because this is a situation that should have been handled better. Hopefully we keep our focus,” the coach added.
The team will travel straight to Nairobi after the game where they will switch to the international departures to Dar es Salaam for the Kagame Cup.
“We want to go on a high. We want to leave our unbeaten run intact and hopefully that gives us confidence to do well at CECAFA,” the coach added.
