Gor Mahia v Chemelil Sugar: Kick off, TV channel, squad news & preview

Goal Kenya.
The Kenyan champions will be seeking to bounce back to winning ways in the New Year after a rather mixed start to the season

Gor Mahia has not started the season well, collecting just three points out of the possible nine in the three matches played. There is no room for mistake against the sugar millers.

Well, for Chemelil, they have to be better than the previous season; they might not be under the same pressure like the defending champions, but they know very well that they must start winning matches to move up the log.

Match Preview

Having won fifteen out of the twenty previous encounters between the two sides, the champions come into the match as favourites. They have drawn thrice and lost just twice against Chemelil.

After a 2-2 draw in the first leg, Chemelil went on to lose the second one by two goals. Winning away against Gor Mahia is almost an impossible task, but again anything can happen in football. In the three league matches K’Ogalo has played this season, the only clean sheet came against Zoo Kericho.

The Kenyan champions have conceded three goals in the process and scored five while Chemelil have done the opposite, scoring three in the four games played and conceding five.
