The administrator is aware of the anxiety which any derby comes with but he insists that peace makes such matches even more enjoyable. "We appeal to the fans to conduct themselves with decorum in a peaceful and mature manner and to avoid all acts of hooliganism," he told Goal.
Gor Mahia are going into the match at position two on the league’s 18 team table while their arch-rivals AFC Leopards are fifth.
It will be the 83rd Mashemeji derby since 1968 and an opportunity for K’Ogalo to stay closer to Ingwe in the derby’s victory record having won 24 matches, four behind those of the Leopard.
Head coach Ze Maria will be on Gor Mahia’s touchline for the second time during the encounter while Stewart Hall will taste the heat while at AFC Leopards for the first time.
