Gor clash a welcome entertainment ahead of Shield semis

Head coach Dunstan Nyaudo follows proceedings in the game against Wazito on Sunday 16th September, 2018

Head coach Dunstan Nyaudo has embarked on preparations for the midweek clash against Gor Mahia, just a few hours after the win over Wazito FC in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) and while the Gor match will be crucial in deciding the final placing on the log, the SportPesa Shield semi final against Kariobangi Sharks holds a special place for the team and its plans.

The team will be up against Gor on Wednesday then Sharks comes on Sunday. Both matches will have apportioned importance and The Don is seeking positive results in both.

“The Gor game will be an entertaining match, and a good one for us because Gor have nothing much to play for after winning the league, while we will be out to play for a better position so it will be an entertaining match.

Most important

“But of course the most important game in our schedule is the Sharks game. We have to be at our best for these matches because we are playing in very tight timelines and it is not easy. The players will be worn out but we have to do this because a lot of what we have done in the season will be hinged on these matches,” he said.

The coach also lauded the team for the hard fought win against a battling Wazito FC side. While the winning margin should have been bigger than the 1 – 0 posted, he was just satisfied that the team took home three points to move fourth on the log.

Prepared

“We prepared for the whole week to play a tough team. Most importantly, we wanted to go for an early goal because we knew very well that being the relegation zone, they (Wazito) would come strongly. We wanted the goal then defend well knowing we have the advantage and we created some five good chances that we should have used.

“I am very satisfied with the result because I expected from Wazito more than they threw at us. They are a good side and I wish them the best in the remaining games,” he added.
