Nuttall relishing Tusker test

11 September 2014, 16:19

Nairobi - New Gor Mahia coach Frank Nuttall insists he is relishing the thought of making his debut against Tusker FC on Sunday.

The tactician took over the reins from Bobby Williamson last month, with the Scot having left the Nairobi giants to take up the head coach's role with the Kenya national team.

The recent international break means Nuttall has been forced to wait to make his official bow with K'Ogalo, although he did have to endure a tough outing against Simba SC last weekend, losing the friendly encounter 3-0.

However, the new boss is confident of his abilities and is ready to maintain the champions' title defence when the KPL leaders face Tusker, who are joint-second in the standings and just two points off the pace.

"I'm really excited and cannot wait for my first league match. I know it is going to be a difficult match on Sunday because Tusker also want the title," Nuttall told Daily Nation.

"The friendly was an eye opener. At least it gave me a good view of the squad I have in the team and the areas that I need to improve on. Generally, we have quality players who I do believe can win the league for us."

The new coach added: "Gor Mahia has very talented boys. It is for me to ensure they turn that talent into success. Sunday's match is very crucial because we are up against one of our biggest rivals so it is quite important that we give our best."
