Record Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia are confident of closing the gap on top-four teams when they face Sofapaka today’s FKF Premier League match in Wundanyi.

Speaking to Standard Sports, Gor Mahia assistant coach Sammy Omollo said they must beat Sofapaka to keep their chances of topping the table by June 30 and play in the Caf Champions League.

Earlier this week, FKF said the team that will be on top of the Premier League standings by June 30, will represent Kenya in the 2021-22 CAF Champions League.

“I believe everything is achievable in football and to be top of the standings by the end of June is possible. Gor is a team that has a lot of talented players and we are banking on them to lift the team up in the coming matches,” said Omollo.

“Sofapaka is a good team and we will have to be cautious too. I believe we had a good win against City Stars, which is a boost ahead of our match. We expect nothing but all three points.”

Player rotation will be key during this busy schedule for most teams.

Meanwhile, former Harambee Stars assistant coach Frank Ouna started his reign at Mathare United on a losing note after the Slum Boys fell 2-1 to KCB at Ruaraka Grounds yesterday.

The victory saw the bankers take their points tally to 33 and leapfrog AFC Leopards into the second as Mathare remain rooted at the bottom with seven points.

Daniel Otieno gave Mathare an early lead in the first minute only for Vincent Wasambo to cancel it on the stroke of halftime.

Derrick Otanga then scored the winner midway through the second half to help the bankers narrow the gap on league leaders Tusker one point.
