Gor coach confident of winning league tittle

Gor Mahia coach Zdravko Logarusic believes the club still stands a good chance of winning the Kenyan Premier League title.

After seeing his side win seven of their last nine league matches, the Croat says the next 10 matches will be a defining moment for Gor Mahia’s 2012 season.

Gor dictated their match against Sofapaka on Monday night at Kasarani but were denied by brilliant goalkeeping by Duncan Ochieng who deservedly went home with the man-of-the-match award.

New-found confidence

"When I took over this team, the players were lacking confidence, they were physically and mentally not ready for any challenge. But I can only thank them for how they have improved so fast and we now believe we can win the title," said Logarusic.

But he is alive to the fact that hauling eight points which is the difference between them and league leaders AFC Leopards will not be easy.

"Had we beaten Sofapaka on Monday, it (the gap) would have gone down to six points, but the draw now complicates matters but anything is possible," said Logarusic.

Improvement

"Picture this, when we lost to Ulinzi Stars in April, Leopards were a massive 16 points ahead of us. Tusker were 12 points ahead and we were 12th in the league with 10 points from 11 games. That tells you how much these boys have improved," he added.

Gor last lost on April 21 to Ulinzi Stars in Nakuru but have since won seven in nine to move to fifth and Logarusic, whose side plays Ulinzi on Sunday in the final of the FKL Top Eight tournament at Kasarani, says K’Ogalo can win a treble - the league, FKF President’s Cup.and top eight tittle

AFC Leopards, meanwhile, are basking in their 5-0 bashing of Thika United on Sunday, a result that pushed them to 44 points.

"It was a great performance. We were a bit shaky but we managed the result. We just need to rectify a few areas," said Leopards assistant coach Mickey Weche who urged Leopards’ fans to return to the stadium to support their team like before.

Ulinzi on the rise

Ulinzi Stars continued their rise in the league with a 2-1 win over City Stars at the Afraha Stadium. The win cemented their place in the fourth position with 36 points and coach Sammy Simiyu insists the next ten game will be a do-or-die affair for the soldiers.

"We need to win all the remaining games. If we get points from the top five teams, we will be home and dry with the title," added Weche.
