Gor Mahia will return to domestic competition this weekend against Muhoroni Youth and Nakumatt FC mid next week.
Nakumatt clash will be the second match for the ‘Green Army’ after their international friendly against English side Everton FC, something that should be troubling their next opponent but not Kenyan Premier League second best goal scorer, Kepha Aswani.
Aswani is optimistic his team will get maximum points against K’Ogalo in a match that has since been moved from Afraha to Nyayo Stadium and possibly extend his goal tally as he keep pace with leader Stephen Waruru of Ulinzi Stars.
"It is definitely going to be a tough match. Remember Gor Mahia will be playing under their new coach who will definitely want to start on a high,” said Aswani, who has six goals to his name so far.
“Their morale is also high after their match against Everton, but we have prepared well, it is a match we want to win. We will give our best but the main thing is to take our chances that will determine the outcome of that match."
Nakumatt is currently lying ninth with 22 points after fifteen matches while Gor Mahia are third on 28 points, just a point less than leaders Ulinzi Stars, though they have played a game more than Nakumatt.
