Gor Mahia head coach Steven Polack has congratulated AFC Leopards for their efforts in the Mashemeji Derby played on Sunday 8 March and which his side won 1-0.
The tactician lauded his team’s opponents for making it a tough encounter unlike the first fixture of the season in which they ran away 4-1 winners in November.
“Congratulations to Leopards because they made it hard for us. It was harder than in the first game we played,” Polack said, “But it is a local derby and a local derby can go either way and today again it went for us and I am happy with the effort that the boys put in.”
The win saw Gor restore their seven-point advantage at the top of the KPL log and with nine matches still left to play, K’Ogalo are well on course to retaining their league crown for the fourth successive season but Polack says the title is still far from wrapped.
“Its still a long way to go. One game doesn’t define how we are going to win the league but that is a good stepping stone that pushes us forward in our quest,” he said.
Gor will now switch their attentions to the Shield Cup where they are set to face off against KPL rivals Posta Rangers on Saturday in Narok for a chance to reach the tournament’s quarter-finals.
