Gor Mahia head coach, Mark Harrison, can only hope that his charges will extend their unbeaten run into their subsequent fixtures, even as they limber up for bruising battles as the Kenyan Premier League enters its crucial stages.
Gor managed to squeeze out a solitary point from the hard-battling coastal side, Bandari at Nyayo Stadium on Sunday after making light work of debutants Vihiga Bullets, whom they thumped 3-1 at Bukhungu Stadium on Wednesday.
However, Harrison is definitely quacking in the boots as the record Kenyan champions buckle up for the rugged terrain ahead after their bumper harvest.
“We shall be coming up against a few tough teams in December. I’d be extremely happy to secure 10 points from our next four encounters,” Harrison said.
The British gaffer who took charge of the 19-time Kenyan champions towards the end of the preceding season reckons the return of their ardent fans into the stands could steer the club to yet another milestone.
“Playing without fans has been difficult for the team given it usually feels like we are in a practice game half the time. The return of supporters has made a big difference and the atmosphere has become fantastic,” he said.
The former Southampton defender had some rosy words for the shirt sponsors too, saying they have done a great job keeping the club afloat especially during this trying moment when Covid-19 has ravaged the country.
“The support we receive from our shirt sponsors is massive at the moment, and they have sponsored the new kit as well. All round, it’s excellent to have them on board,” said Harrison.
