The Argentine is adamant his charges will have a say against a K'Ogalo side that is yet to lose in the league this season

Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr took a jibe on AFC Leopards a couple of weeks ago, after his opposite number Zapata Rodolfo made a bold statement that his team is the biggest in the country.

With the Mashemeji Derby scheduled for this weekend, the two tacticians will face each other for the first time in the history of the two clubs.

The Argentine is adamant his charges will have a say on Sunday, hoping at the end of the day things will go his way. "I have massive respect for Dylan and Gor, that is a fact, but they have to respect us too and our reach history.

"I do not want to speak a lot, my players will do the talking on the pitch. We have massive talent in the team and hunger to do better, and that will drive us forward.

"The fans should turn out in large numbers and give us the support we need to ensure we get maximum points," Zapata told Goal.

It will be the third time the two sides will be facing each other in all competitions.
