Gor Mahia traveled to Tanzania on Friday, just hours after taking on Sony Sugar in a KPL match

Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr has attributed his team’s lacklustre performance against Rayon Sports to fatigue in his squad.

K’Ogalo surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 in the opening Group C match of the Cecafa Kagame Cup.

But Kerr, who had less than 24-hour rest after arriving in Tanzania on Saturday morning, said that fatigue played a big part in the dropped points.

“We play four games in seven days: yes they are fatigued.

Kerr, who travelled to Dar Es Salaam with his players just moments after Gor Mahia beat Sony Sugar in a KPL match in Kisumu last Friday, believes that K'Ogalo players have an obligation to pull out from the clog anytime they are called upon.

“Being in Tanzania, of course, players have responsibilities when paid."

Kerr, however, reiterated that performance against Ryon Sports was wanting.

"I was angry. I never let my guard down I answer honestly we are fatigued we did have hotel issues it was not good enough it was not our doing.”

Gor Mahia will take on Lydia Ludic of Burundi on Tuesday in a must-win match.
