Rwandan international Jacques Tuyisenge, turning out for Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions Gor Mahia knows the second half of the season, which is scheduled to kick off on Saturday 2 July will not be a walk in the park for his team.
Gor Mahia will be gunning for a fourth straight title but after a grueling first half of the season that saw the team hit the summit of the league at some point before being docked points. The team has been on a roll on recent weeks but Tuyisenge believes that alone is not a guarantee that all will be smooth sailing in the second half of the season.
The team has gone for nine matches without conceding a goal, winning all of them with two of those being cup games and Tuyisenge says the team’s form heading to the closing stages of the first leg places K’Ogalo as the team to beat, which he admits is not a very easy experience.
“We expect a very tough second leg of the season because we finished strongly in the first leg and everyone will be expecting that we keep the same standards in the second leg. Apart from that we will also be the target of all the other teams.
“Every team now will want to beat us and it can get tough so we are prepared for all that and we will be looking to work hard to keep our run,” he said.
