Gor urged to adopt attack strategy in Gabon

14 February 2014, 13:00

Nairobi - The best way to defend for Gor Mahia to enhance its chances to qualify for the next stage of the Orange Confederation of African Football Champions League is to attack.

That is the view of fans ahead of the local league champions’ clash with Gabonese opponents, US Bitam, in the first round second leg encounter in Libreville on Saturday.

Gor Mahia, who are carrying a narrow 1-0 home lead have been urged to desist from defending their solitary goal scored in Nairobi last weekend.

Instead, they should attack the 'enemy' in order to repel pressure.

“That way, I see Gor Mahia progressing to the next stage of the CAF Club Championship, otherwise defending would cost them dearly," said staunch supporter Hubert Omondi during an interview.

Another supporter, Nigel Ouma, predicted a tough assignment for Gor Mahia arguing that playing away from home, particularly in the African safari, was always difficult.

“Gor Mahia must be cautious in their approach on Saturday. They (Gor Mahia) must not defend their slim 1-0 lead, but at the same time, they must attack but with caution lest they expose their defence because anything can happen. It is all up to the coach to implement a workable strategy but if they approach this away encounter with caution, they can always advance to the next stage,” Ouma said.

Ugandan goalscorer Danny Serunkuma will be the main inspiration for Gor Mahia in the decider this weekend.

The likes of George “Blackberry” Odhiambo, Jared Obwoge, Rama Salim and Shaban Kenga are also expected to play key roles in the team’s quest to progress.
