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.

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."

important that we give our best."
