However, coach Kerr has defended the keeper, who came under heavy criticism from the fans for conceding the goal that almost turned the game in favour of Sharks.

“The bounce of the ball cost us a goal but his amazing save when we leading 2-1 was magnificent. I have three fantastic goalkeepers.”

The win enabled Gor Mahia to move second on the 18-team league table, one point adrift of leaders Mathare United.
