Squad depth will help us bounce back from weekend upset, says Polack ahead of Nzoia clash

Gor Mahia are back in league action this Wednesday with a rescheduled away tie to Nzoia Sugar at the Mumias Sports Complex with the match coming just days after their humiliating exit from the CAF Champions League.

Gor lost 6-1 on aggregate to Algerian side USM Algier after suffering a 2-0 loss at the MISC Kasarani on Sunday in the two teams’ return-leg fixture of the final qualifying round to reach the tournament’s group stage.

Bounce back

It was a big blow and head coach Steven Polack has called on his charges to bounce back from the defeat with the game against Nzoia, something he feels they are capable of given the squad depth that is at his disposal.

He is quoted on the club’s website as saying, “We have to rise from the weekend loss and record good results in the league. I’m glad there is a bigger number to pick players from and I will those who can do the job for me regardless of if they played on Sunday or not.” 

Gor, who have two games in hand, currently lie in 8th place on the standings with six points having won the two matches they have played thus far. A win against the Millers will send the defending champions to the top of the log with a game in hand.
