The Rwandan star scored in Sunday's 2-0 win against Sofapaka but aggravated his injury and could be sidelined for a few weeks

Gor Mahia striker Jacques Tuyisenge is unlikely to feature in the next two Kenyan Premier League (KPL) matches.

The Rwandan star scored the second goal as Gor Mahia roared to a 2-0 win over Sofapaka in a top-of-the-table KPL clash played on Sunday at Moi Stadium in Kisumu.

The win enabled K’Ogalo to increase their tally of points to 66, 10 more than second-placed Batoto ba Mungu.

However, K’Ogalo coach Hassan Oktay has confirmed to Goal that Tuyisenge aggravated the injury he was carrying going into the match and could miss a couple of fixtures before the season comes to a close.

“Tuyisenge was half injured when he started against Sofapaka but the injury got worse after the game. We are monitoring him and I have a feeling that he will miss a few matches,” Oktay told Goal in an interview.

After playing against Nzoia Sugar on Wednesday, Gor Mahia will then host bitter rivals AFC Leopards in the Mashemeji derby on Sunday.
