Gor Mahia held by Chemelil

25 October 2011, 09:07

Nairobi - Gor Mahia’s winless streak stretched to eight matches after they were held to a goalless draw by Chemelil in Naivasha on Monday.

The green army also lost Eric Masika to a red card in a match played in am empty stadium as punishment for crowd trouble against Congo united last month.

Chemilil will however blame themselves for failing to grab maximum points after they squandered a spotkick barely two minutes into the game.

Top striker Victor Ochieng’s penalty was brilliantly saved by Gor Goalkeeper Jerim Onyango after defender Chris Wekesa handled the ball in the danger zone.

Gor were then reduced to ten men in the 44th minute after Masika was sent off for a second bookable offence after he hacked down Georson Likono.

After the match, Gor officials complained bitterly about the referee Davies Omweno.

"The referee came with a fixed mind. Though the red card was genuine, there was no adequate reason to award our visitors the penalty since it was a clear ball to hand," observed assistant secretary Ronald Ngala.

Chemelil official Rajab Said said they should have collected maximum points, “We outplayed Gor, dominated the match and it was just bad luck that we failed to carry the day.”

Gor Mahia will not break camp as face defending champions Sofapaka in the FKL cup final set for Nyayo National Stadium.
