Past Mashemeji Derby action

Sunday’s Mashemeji Derby pitting arch rivals Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards will be played at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani, home side K’Ogalo has confirmed.

Gor have not played at any Sports-Kenya owned stadium since March after their half-time chaos in the match against Vihiga Bullets, which ended prematurely and property worth thousands of shillings was destroyed.

They had earlier wanted the derby to be played at the newly constructed Jomo Kenyatta Stadium in Kisumu, but the venue has since been declared unavailable as it is booked for a different function. Its safety was also questioned, owing to the volatility that comes with the derby.

“Gor Mahia FC appeals to fans around the country to come out in large numbers and support our team on this particular match,” a statement from Secretary General Sam Ocholla said.

The match will be played on Sunday as AFC looks to continue with its impressive run that has seen them lose only once in 13 outings.

Leopards strongly believe that this is the time for them to beat their bitter rivals who have dominated the derby over the last few matches.
