Chemelil Sugar dark horses in key KPL clash

20 May 2014, 10:14

Nairobi - Days ahead of the much-anticipated top-of-the-table clash, there is a feeling perennial underdogs, Chemelil Sugar, will turn the tables on Gor Mahia, the defending champions.

The two sides cross swords on Thursday at Afraha Stadium in Nakuru.

Since the new Premiership season kicked-off in February, Chemelil Sugar remains the only team yet to lose in 12 matches played to date while log leaders Gor Mahia have lost twice.

Gor Mahia are leading the 16-team league log standing with 26 points while their Thursday opponents are four points behind and in second position.

Chemelil Sugar staunch supporter, Chemist Mugo, believes his team would defend its unbeaten run in their quest for the league championship.

“It is unfortunate that Chemelil Sugar is still placed second because the team's current form speaks volumes of their capabilities to win this year's league title. We (Chemelil Sugar) are the only team yet to lose a single match in 12 games played so far. So, for any premiership to underestimate us will be a huge receipt for disaster,” Mugo said.

Sports journalist, Edmore Were, said Chemelil Sugar’s game had peaked and they deserved to win the league championship this season.

“It is only that football is a game of surprises, but judging from their standard of play, I think Chemelil Sugar will go a long way in their campaign for the league title. They are the only team yet to lose a single match, so that alone is not a fluke,” Were said.

Gor Mahia head coach, Bobby Williamson, admitted that Chemelil Sugar will be difficult to beat at their own backyard.

“They are unbeaten so far and that alone proves that it is a team to watch this season. They are playing very well as a unit and we cannot afford to be complacent,” Williamson said.
