Simba needed a penalty shootout to go past Kariobangi Sharks

Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr has blasted the poor state of the playing surface at Afraha Stadium.

Gor Mahia weathered the bumpy surface to edge out Jeshi La Kujenga Uchumi of Zanzibar 3-0 in the opening match, but Kerr was unimpressed by the overall display in the match.

“The state of the field is horrendous,” Ker who is waiting to play the winner between AFC Leopards and Singida United coughed ahead of the much-anticipated clash.

The poor state of the pitch makes extremely difficult for players to have total control of the ball with the ball bouncing and passes not getting to the intended recipient.

“How can you play football in such a ground when fans pay good money to watch entertaining football?” wondered Kerr.
