Gor Mahia coach Zdravko Logarusic admits he has been impressed with KCB’s performance so far this term and retaliates that his charges will have to be at their best against the bankers when the two teams go head-to-head in a league clash at City Stadium on Sunday.
The bankers are the in-form team of the league so far having amassed the most points and scored more goals than any other side in the top flight thus far and remain unbeaten after seven rounds of matches.
Logarusic, whose team has displayed an inconsistent campaign that includes bowing out of the Caf Confederations Cup at the hands of Egyptian side ENPPI, confesses that it’s not the ideal time for his charges to square out against Juma Abdalla’s team, but adds that his players will be up-to the task.
“It is a good achievement if after seven games you have not lost a single game and you also have conceded only one goal. This shows they are well prepared for the league and the coach is doing a good job. My team should take them very seriously,” Logarusic told Goal.com.
Gor Mahia will be playing their fourth league match of the season. They have won against Mathare United and Sofapaka and lost a single tie against Ulinzi Stars.
“Our target is to win the league but we prefer to take each match at a time. This is a marathon and we are ready to go all the way in it,” adds the Croat who won all titles on offer last season, with the exception of the league.
Injury has deprived the highly popular European manager of the services of Mungai Kiongera who is nursing a thigh injury, Edwin Lavatsa who has a broken toe, and David Owino who’s pulled a hamstring.
