Gor Mahia's date with destiny



League leaders Gor Mahia will win an historic 13th league title if they overcome Thika United in their final league match at City Stadium on Saturday.

Mighty K’Ogalo have a one point lead and victory over the Brookside boys will see them crowned champions regardless of the results in the Tusker and AFC Leopards’ matches.

The feat will see the club secure their first league title in 17 years and they will be going into the game with an upper hand. They last dropped points in the league in August and are currently on a run of 18 matches unbeaten.

Gor Mahia will also have a fully fit squad for the encounter, with Rama Salim and Joseph Njuguna, who were substituted as a precautionary measure in the 4–0 drubbing of Muhoroni Youth, expected to be back among the starters.

The Nairobi side has scored 10 goals in their last five league matches, while conceding just twice in the process.

Thika United, on the other hand, have had an unimpressive run lately, failing to register a single win in their last five league matches. They have managed three draws and two losses in the run.

Their last win was over the already relegated Rangers FC, a 4–0 victory in Thika on 23 September. They have shipped six goals in their last five matches, which should make them wary ahead of their trip to the City Stadium.

Probable lineups: Gor Mahia: Jerim Onyango (GK) (cpt), Solomon Nasio, Christopher Wekesa, Ivan Anguyo, Donald Mosoti, Anthony Akumu, Ali Abondo, Joseph Njuguna, Dan Sserunkuma, Rama Salim, Moses Odhiambo.

Subs: Ivo Mapunda (GK), David Owino, Yusuf Juma, Moses Otieno, George Midenyo, Kevin Omondi, Edwin Lavatsa.

Thika United: Lucas Indeche, Simon Mbugua, Vincent Mogaka, Dirkir Glay, Tony Kizito, Kuria Joseph, Wycliffe Opondo, John Nairuka, Francis Kahata, Kepha Aswani, Haji Mwachoki.

Subs: Joel Bataro (Gk), Jackson Macharia, Moses Arita, Michael Alubisi, Vincent Otieno, Dennis Odhiambo, Freeman Mulbah.
