Ulinzi Stars head coach Benjamin Nyangweso believes his team’s duel with reigning champions Gor Mahia will be settled by the side that makes good use of created chances.
The two sides face off for the second time in eight days, on Monday 29 April at Afraha Stadium starting 3pm EAT, having played to a 1 – 1 draw in the first leg at Moi Stadium in Kisumu.
Dennis Oliech’s goal early in the second half gave Gor Mahia the lead but that lasted just nine minutes as Enosh Ochieng restored parity with a penalty. Nyangweso is predicting another close contest when the two giants meet.
“It will not just be tough; it will also be tight. This match will be determined by who makes use of chances created. It is the kind of match that any wasted chance comes back to haunt so we will be keen and try to make full use of whatever we create,” he says on the club website.
The coach is hopeful that his charges will carry the day, and bases this on the preparations the team has had.
“So far all is good. The preparations are good and the mood in training is also great. The boys know what is required of them because this is a big game and a tough one too; we are playing Gor Mahia for the second time in about a week so we need to be at our best.
Going to the clash Nyangweso’s side will be eyeing three points, which will aid them scale two places up the log, to sixth.
