Logarusic hopeful of final spot



Gor Mahia head coach Zdravko Logarusic is hopeful his team will emerge victorious when they face arch rivals AFC Leopards on Saturday.

The top tier giants will collide in a Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President’s Cup semi-final match at the Moi International Sports Center in Kasarani on Saturday.

Gor won the competition last season, and Logarusic hopes the defending champions will finish the year on a positive note by retaining the piece of silverware.

“We almost won the Premier League title but that is now over. It’s time to dust ourselves up and finish on a high by retaining the FKF cup,” Logarusic said.

“I know AFC also want to win the cup and will therefore give us a tough match but it is my hope we emerge victors in the semi and go ahead to win the final,” he added.

The other last-four match will see Tusker Premier League champions Tusker FC and Sofapaka face each other on Sunday at the same venue.

Meanwhile, the FKF has released the names of the officials to take charge of the crunch encounter. Anthony Ogwae will referee the Gor Mahia versus AFC tie, while Davies Omweno will oversee Sofapaka versus Tusker.
