Gor Mahia striker Dan Sserunkuma is relishing the prospect of playing in his first ever derby against AFC Leopards when the two sides face off at Kasarani on Saturday.

The Ugandan who moved to Gor Mahia in the mid season transfer, is a feared man at AFC Leopards after he scored twice for his former side Nairobi City Stars when they mauled Ingwe 3-0 in the first leg.

Now he is at Gor Mahia and he believes he can carry his exploits to the derby.

“I am excited about the derby. I am working hard to make the team. It is always the dream of any player to be part of such a big match that has captured the imagination and interest of the entire country,” said Sserunkuma who has scored ten goals this season.

“I moved to Gor Mahia because of the passion within the club right from the management to the players and the fans. Its is just too exciting."

“This is what I have always dreamt of, to be on the pitch for Gor Mahia against AFC Leopards. It is bound to be a a great atmosphere out there and I am looking forward for a great day of football.".

Sserunkuma says Leopards will be a tough side to beat but he believes if Gor Mahia play well without being nervy they can win.

“We just need to play our normal game. Our coach has said we take this game just like any other and that is how we are viewing it."

“Of course there is pressure given both sides are chasing the title, but our coaches have told us to stay focused. I am praying for a Gor Mahia win.”
