Gor Mahia v AFC Leopards Mashemeji Derby

It is going to be a high profile encounter; a match everyone anticipates for every season.

Gor Mahia has had a lukewarm season locally, managing to get six wins, a draw and three defeats and as a result are placed fourth on the log with 19 points.

The story is different for AFC Leopards, who have gone to register just two wins, four draws and five defeats and are placed 15th on the log with just ten points.

Francis Kahata and Philemon Otieno will need late fitness test to verify whether they are fully fit to feature in the derby. The duo missed Wednesday’s 1-0 win against Vihiga United, and coach Hassan Oktay admitted they were missed. 

Victor Majid has returned from injury and could start in the midfield for Ingwe. However, Ezekiel Seda, who injured his knee last weekend will miss the battle alongside Ghanaian defender Isaac Oduro, Marvin Nabwire and Said Tsuma.

This is going to be the 85th Mashemeji Derby and it is an open secret that Gor Mahia comes into the match as favorites owing to their recent run of form that has seen them rise to the fourth position on the 18-team log.
