Gor ambush

Gor Mahia moved to third spot in the Kenyan Premier League on Wednesday with a hard won 1-0 win over Ulinzi Stars at the City Stadium in Nairobi.

It was a high octane game, both sides came for a win and while the "green army" carried the day, the solders too fought hard.

Victor Ali stole the perfect moment to score his first league goal for K’Ogalo with a rifling shot that ’keeper Jackton Odhiambo could not stop in the 60th minute.

Ulinzi had half chances, their best coming in the 70th minute when Lawrence Owino sneaked through a otherwise watertight but failed to beat goalkeeper Jerry Onyango.

It was Gor Mahia’s 11th unbeaten game in the league, a run that has hauled them off the relegation zone to make them a serious title contender.

From 16 points off the pace 11 games ago, Gor are now just four points behind leaders AFC Leopards who have 44 and who meet champions Tusker Friday evening.

The first half was all even but Dan Serenkuma and Moses Odhiambo were guilty of two clear scoring opportunities with Ulinzi ’keeper Odhiambo the only one to beat.

The game was quite important for both sides as a win for either would have taken them to joint second with Tusker at 40 points.

Gor Mahia coach Zdravko Logarusic named Moses Otieno in place of injured Joseph Njuguna.

Ulinzi employed a rugged approach to the game ensuring Rama Salim and Serunkuma did not enjoy their passing game.

In the process, Stephen Ocholla became the first to be booked for a foul on Anthony Akumu and should have been sent off for bringing Serunkuma down.

However, it ended in a barren draw at half time.

But Logarusic made a tactical change at the start of the second half taking off Moses Otieno, a defensive midfielder for Kevin Omondi a striker.

This added punch in the Gor attack resulting in the goal.

Even with the win, Logarusic told his players and fans that the job is not yet done: "We still have seven games. Let’s take one at a time. I am happy we won today. The boys played their hearts out.’’ said Logarusic.

Gor meet Sony Sugar on Sunday, a match that will take them to second if they win.
