Gor assured of league title

24 October 2013, 10:18

Nairobi - Bobby Williamson, the Gor Mahia coach, came close to declare his team champions of the Tusker Premier League after a last-gasp victory over their closest rivals, Sofapaka on Wednesday evening.

The stoppage time win, courtesy of Ugandan forward, Danny Sserunkuma, helped the Nairobi side inch closer to a first league title in 18 years and virtually ended Sofapaka’s hopes of retaining the accolade.

The win has placed Gor Mahia ten points clear of their other closest rivals, Abaluhya Football Club (AFC) Leopards.

Gor Mahia will next face Homeboyz on Sunday, a game from which they will need a single point to be declared the country’s new league champions.

Ahead of the match, Williamson all but declared his team, also known as the “Green Army,” champions.

“This is actually my greatest moment. I can officially declare we are there,” Williamson said after the slender but crucial victory over Sofapaka at the Moi International Sports Center in Kasarani.

Gor Mahia will have their work cut out against a Homeboyz side that is fighting to avoid relegation and this week promised to pull an ace down their sleeve and spoil their opponents’ party.

Gor Mahia, who are among the country’s most successful sides have nonetheless not won the league title since 1995.

They have this campaign brought back memories of those years with Sserunkuma playing a pivotal role.

Their exploits have seen the side play in front of capacity crowds.
