Gor Mahia’s Austin Odhiambo celebrates after scoring against Tusker. A win for Gor Mahia will take their tally to 46 points and move them one step closer to lifting a record-extending 21st title.
They are still unbeaten after 19 games (W12 D7). Several mouth-watering clashes are on offer this weekend in the Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKFPL).
Struggling clubs such as Shabana FC and Nzoia Sugar FC will be aiming to rectify their past mistakes and register better results in match week 20 to avoid being relegated at the end of the season. On the other hand, league leaders Gor Mahia FC will have to overcome a difficult Police FC test to maintain their unbeaten run.
Despite the drama, the Northern Irish international has also expressed confidence in his side returning home with the maximum points. “We know it is going to be very difficult.
You know there are a lot of players who have crossed over from Gor to Police over the last few years. We also know that the evidence of the season has shown that if we play to our maximum, most teams struggle against us.
It is about putting in a top performance and if we do that, we know the points are available for us,” stated McKinstry ahead of the crunch tie. A win for Gor Mahia will take their tally to 46 points and move them one step closer to lifting a record-extending 21st title.
Simba wa Nairobi cannot afford to lose two matches in a row in the competitive league, because doing so may give the likes of Posta Rangers, Tusker FC, and Bandari FC a chance to dethrone them from the second position. The Kisii-based club sits at position 17 currently on 17 points, four more than the bottom-placed Nzoia Sugar side.
As for the third-placed Posta Rangers, the clash offers them a golden opportunity to reduce the gap between themselves and leaders Gor Mahia. The fixture is slated for 3 PM on Saturday at the Western Kenya based Sudi Stadium.
