Gor Mahia captain Harun Shakava says his team is not under any pressure to win the Mashemeji Derby as compared to their rivals AFC Leopards.

The two teams will face off at Kasarani, with the defending champions aiming at getting at least a point to secure their 17th league crown. Shakava is confident his team will get something from the match and secure the title.

“I cannot say we are under pressure at this moment, no, Leopards are. They have not won against us for quite some time meaning that desire to get maximum points will automatically put them under pressure. But we are prepared for them, we want to continue doing well.

“It will be great if we win the title today (Saturday), that is what we as players and everyone associated with Gor Mahia wants. It will be a great feeling,” Shakava told Goal.

If Gor Mahia wins the match, it will be Shakava's first league title as a captain, a responsibility he was given at the beginning of the season.
