Kerr also attributed the calamitous defeat to congested fixtures, the tie coming barely 24 hours after a long trip from Algiers, Algeria where they were knocked out of the Caf-Confederations Cup by USM Algers.

“Not even in big leagues like EPL, Bundesliga or Serie A would you find a team squeezed with assignments like we are. We are not getting any help from the League organizers despite crying for help,”Kerr charged.

Kerr said he will now strategize a fresh and ensure his boys are reinvigorated for future assignments. Despite clinching the league title ten days ago, Gor still have their hands full with a number of matches still on the cards.
