Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr has blamed the condition of the pitch at Thika Sub County for the team’s final defeat against Tusker on Sunday.

The Kenyan champions were seeking to the end the season on a high but were undone by the brewers, who beat them by a solitary goal in the season’s ender. The Briton coach has once again condemned the state of the playing surface at Thika Stadium saying it slowed the team’s style of play.

“We dominated the possession but that field was very detrimental on how we played. We could not play our normal game on that field and that is a fact. We didn’t create much and had half chances to score without threatening the Tusker keeper.

“I am not using the pitch as an excuse but my three games there so far this season, we lost all of them and never scored a goal. Just ask Barcelona to play on that pitch and let’s see there playing style,” Kerr told Goal in an interview.

“I know how we play and we did try to do the same against Tusker but with a poor end product if no product at all and compared to when we play in in Kisumu, Kasarani and Machakos.”

Kerr also admitted that off pitch activities in the recent weeks did not work to help the team. “These past five weeks have been horrendous. Attitude characters and the morale of our intensity, enthusiasm and enjoyment, all has been missing from what has been a tremendous season, an inspired season.”

Gor Mahia will represent the country in Caf Champions League next season by virtue of winning the league.
