McKinstry named the toughest team that Gor Mahia faced in their unbeaten first leg run in the 2023/24 Football Kenya Federation Premier League campaign. Gor Mahia finished the first leg with 10 wins, 7 draws, and no defeats, setting a strong foundation to defend their league title and claim their 21st crown. Throughout the 17 games, teams tried to put a dent in Gor Mahia’s unbeaten streak, but none were successful. According to the head coach, one of the toughest opponents they faced was Posta Rangers, as they played good football and had a similar style of play to Gor Mahia. The head coach also mentioned that ending the season unbeaten, like they did in 2015 under Frank Nuttal, would be the toughest challenge yet. Teams already have extra motivation to beat Gor Mahia, so staying unbeaten becomes even more difficult.
