Well, this is going to be the fourth time the two sides are facing each other in the Kenyan Premier League.
Gor Mahia has an excellent record against the 2016 NSL champions having lost none of the matches. As a matter of fact, K’Ogalo has won all the past three encounters, scoring a total of six goals and conceding none.
Nzoia is at home, a place where they have won four games, drawn three and lost twice. That is a total of fifteen points from the possible twenty-seven points.
The Dylan Kerr led side has played a total of fifteen matches, winning eleven and drawing four. They have managed to collect thirty-seven points in the process, meaning they remain top on the log.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Nzoia Sugar: Keeper Benson Mangala has to be on top shape and must command his defenders well to ensure he does not concede. Scoring fifteen goals is not easy and it seems Elvis Rupia is in the form of his life; he cannot be let loose.
Gor Mahia: Having scored eight goals this season, Meddie Kagere remains the top scorer for his team and his hunger for success will push for more. Cercidy Okeyo was impressive against Wazito and he hopes the coach gives him more play time.
PROBABLE LINE-UPS: Nzoia Sugar: Benson Mangala, Festus Okiring, Hillary Wandera, Brian Otieno, Vincent Ngesa, Peter Gin, Edgar Nzano, Kevin Juma, Elvis Rupia, Stephen Wakanya and David Odhiambo.
Gor Mahia: Boniface Oluoch, Innocent Wafula, Godfrey Walusimbi, Joash Onyango, Haron Shakava, Cersidy Okeyo, Francis Kahata, Humprey Mieno, Jacques Tuyisenge, Meddie Kagere and Boniface Omondi.
