Gor Mahia are expected to name unchanged starting line-up when they face Thika United in the title deciding match at City Stadium on Saturday.
Gor Mahia needs three points to be crowned champions after 17-years of waiting irrespective of the outcome of matches involving AFC Leopards who play away to Chemelil Sugar and Tusker who tackle City Stars at Hope Centre.
Gor coach Zdravko Logarusic remains confident that his charges will complete the task of bagging the title they launched in April.
Thika United coach James Kamau on Tuesday warned Gor fans to stop celebrating yet.
“I know that the fans (Gor) are so happy. They have literally cheered their team to the top this season, but they should not celebrate early because they have not won the trophy.”
“On Saturday anything can happen and because we also need maximum points to finish the league in a respectable position. We are not just traveling to Nairobi to make numbers but our main aim is to win the match,” Kamau told Goal.com.
Ugandan Dan Sserunkuma will be going for the goal scorer’s award as he currently ties on 17 with Sofapaka striker John Baraza.
