Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr is optimistic of beating Zoo Kericho when the two sides lock horns in a Kenyan Premier League fixture on Wednesday at the Kenyatta Stadium, Machakos.

K’Ogalo played SuperSport United on Sunday, registering a slim 1-0 win and coach Kerr says he’s ready to fight for the top slot in KPL.

At position two on the log on 19 points and with three games in hand, Gor will move to 21 points, a touching distance of leaders Mathare United on 22 points, should they win against the Frank Ouna coached Wazito.

The ‘Slum Boys’ are perched at the summit of the table having played three games more than K’Ogalo and Kerr who still has a mighty test in his sleeves against Supersport United of South Africa in the Caf-Confederation return match, is expected to make changes on the squad that faced United.

He said: “We had a very tough game last Sunday against Supersport and we are doing a recovering session today .I will give chance to those players who did not feature in Sunday match as well as managing them.”

“The ones who need to play tomorrow must show me the right attitude today in training.

“I am urging the fans to continue giving support to the team.”

Wazito, under coach Ouna, will depend on striker Pistone Mutamba who so far has notched four goals to lead his forward line.

In a separate interview, Ouna said that he expects a tough match. “We are looking for a win although it will not be that easy. We are well prepared and ready to face them.”

“My boys simply have to focus as our target is to get either a win or a draw,’’ Said Ouna.
