Gor Mahia will honour their last weekend’s fixture against Muhoroni Youth on August 19 following a late arrival from Tanzania. The match which was supposed to be played on Saturday was rescheduled after the 15-time champions jetted into the country late from the SportPesa friendly match against English Premier League side Everton.
According to the club’s secretary general Ronald Ngala, the clash could not be played owing to fatigue among the playing unit, resulting from their game against Everton and the flights. “We wrote to Kenya Premier League requesting a reschedule of our match since we could not make it on time and the playing unit was a little bit tired. The match will be played on August 19 at Moi Stadium, Kisumu. We hope the experience gained from the Everton clash will be translated into the remaining bit of the season as we gear up towards reclaiming the league since we are not in any other competition. It was a good exposure to both the players and the technical bench and our fans.”
Gor will be out action this weekend as the GOtv round of 16 takes the centre stage. They are set to play Nakumatt FC at Nyayo Stadium when the Premier League resumes with the Dylan Kerr keen to break the win-less run in their last four premier league matches. Ranked third with 28 points and with a match at hand, a win would see Gor topple the two leaders Ulinzi Stars and second-placed Tusker on the standings.
