AFC Leopards Out to Break Gor Mahia Jinx as Electric Mashemeji Derby Looms

The country is warming up to the ever fierce Mashemeji Derby, this time record champions Gor Mahia set to host their archrivals AFC Leopards at a venue that is yet to be decided by the organizers just days to the match.

It has never been a walk in the park for either side in the derby, and most recently worse off for AFC Leopards who are yet to record a win against Gor Mahia in over six years.

These statistics have gotten Ingwe head coach Patrick Aussems thinking with the derby set for Sunday fast approaches.

The Belgian acknowledges the difficult task ahead of him, the task of guiding the 1998 champions to their first Mashemeji Derby win since March 2016 and has vouched for his players to rise to the occasion.

There is always the time to win a game and so Gor Mahia or any other team I don’t care. My opponents are there and I know it’s a special game for a lot of people although we still don’t know the stadium that the game will be played at,” Aussems said.

The former Simba coach is banking on fan support and hopes that the fans can make it to the venue in large numbers to psyche his players to a win.

“I hope the stadium will be full and I think this is the right moment to have a football game between the two biggest teams in Kenya,” he added.

AFC Leopards are currently 10th on the FKF Premier League log with 38 points after 27 matches while K’Ogalo are in fifth place with eight points more than Ingwe.
