Ulinzi’s Simiyu has warned Gor to brace for a different ball game whereas Logarusic has cautioned the army men to forget “bagging maximum points"

A war of words has erupted between rivals Gor Mahia and Ulinzi Stars tacticians Zdravko Logarusic and Sammy Simiyu ahead of their explosive Kenya Premier league match at City Stadium on Wednesday.

Ulinzi’s Simiyu has warned Gor Mahia to brace for a different ball game whereas Logarusic has cautioned the army men to forget “carrying home maximum points.”

The league clash comes barely three weeks after Gor Mahia lifted the KPL Top 8 title from Ulinzi after winning 2-0 in the final played at Kasarani.

Ulinzi feel they were cheated in the match as the first goal from Rama Salim did not cross the line while the second via Congolese import Itub Imbem came from an offside position.

‘’It was very disappointing to lose the trophy to them (Gor) especially in that controversial manner. We have worked hard to forget about that match and are now focused for Wednesday. Gor should anticipate a battle of a lifetime,” Simiyu told Kenya.

“We have worked so hard in training this week, polishing our finishing and I expect my strikers to be able to take their chances. We are solid in midfield and defense and if our attack can be sharp then we can kill the game.”

Simiyu will once again be banking on his lead goal scorer Evans Amuoka and the burly Wycliffe Ochomo to spearhead the attacks while last season’s golden boot winner Stephen Waruru will head the midfield.

Gor’s Logarusic insists they deserved to be crowned Top 8 champions and will put the issue to bed when they two sides clash on Wednesday.

“We want to finish the job in a professional way. We want to show them (Ulinzi) that we were rightful winners and can still beat them at any competition.”

Gor could welcome back Salim and Moses Odhiambo, who were rested against Western Stima in a FKF Presidents Cup on Sunday.
