Gor Mahia head coach Steven Polack has enhanced his personal trophy cabinet once again this season after belatedly picking the February Fidelity Insurance coach of the month award.

The award which ought to have been issued in March had to be deferred after the novel coronavirus pandemic broke out in China last year and swept through the world halting sporting activities.

Pollack had scooped a double last year after clinching the award in October and November.

Despite losing 3-1 to Sofapaka in the month, the English man guided the record champions to garner unassailable 10 points courtesy of three wins and a draw.

Gor began the month with a convincing 3-0 win over Nzoia Sugar before bowing to Sofapaka. Their efforts to return to their winning ways were put off by Western Stima who forced a one-all-draw in the third match.

However, Gor wrapped the month with identical 3-2 wins over Zoo FC and Stima to give Pollack an edge over the rest.

The former Asante Kotoko coach beat youthful AFC Leopards gaffer Anthony Kimani to the award. The latter guided Ingwe to gather nine points out of a possible 12, thanks to the wins recorded over Ulinzi Stars, Sofapaka and Chemelil Sugar.

Kimani would have won his first coach of the month award but losing to Tusker by a solitary goal in the second match of the month struck the difference between him and the Briton.

Veteran tactician and former Bandari technical director Twahir Muhiddin came in third after scooping eight points. Muhiddin was serving as an interim manager following the suspension of Bernard Mwalala in January.

Bandari were however unbeaten in the month after registering one all draws to Posta Rangers and Kakamega Homeboyz before sinking KCB(2-1) and Mathare United(3-1) in their last fixtures of the month.
