Gor Mahia FC’s Deputy Secretary General Ronald Ngala has blamed poor officiating for the club’s shock Super Cup exit at the hands of Tanzanian minnows Mbao FC.

Ngala was adamant the referee had got it wrong following his decision to disallow Erisa Ssekisambu’s first half goal for offside.

The Ugandan had scored from a rebound after Dennis Oliech’s header had been pushed back by goalkeeper Mnata Metacha as Gor went on to draw 1-1 and losing 4-3 on penalties.

“Even if we had successfully appealed against it the only action they could have taken was to suspend the referee and uphold the outcome of the match,” Ngala told Citizen Digital.

He however added they have moved on from it and are focussing on their league assignment against KCB FC slated for Sunday at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

They will then host Sony Sugar on January 30 at a venue yet to be confirmed before hosting Egypt’s Zamalek for their first CAF Confederation Cup group stage match in Kasarani.

Gor were drawn in group D alongside Zamalek, Angola’s Petro Atletico and Algeria’s Na Hussein Dey.

“We have an advantage because we are starting at home and will finish at home. We intend to capitalize on home matches in order to make it to the quarter finals,” Ngala said.
