Gor Mahia striker Erisa Ssekisambu has promised to deliver 20 goals.
The Ugandan striker joined K’Ogalo from Vipers SC and notched his first hat-trick of the season as the Kenyan champions cruised to a comfortable 4-1 win over Mount Kenya United on Wednesday.
Ssekisambu scored in the first half before Dennis Oliech made it 2-0 from the penalty spot. Former Gor Mahia midfielder Moses ‘Dube’ Odhiambo halved the deficit for Mount Kenya United but Ssekisambu added the third before sealing his hat-trick after receiving an assist from Oliech.
Ssekisambu now says he wants to score over 20 goals for Gor Mahia. “God above everything so blessed for the hat-trick today (Wednesday), in my first start for Gor Mahia in the KPL. I now want to focus for the next game and I believe I can achieve 20 goals and above for the club this season.”
The win ensured that Gor Mahia moved to fourth position on the 18-team table after amassing 13 points, four adrift of league leaders Mathare United.
