A clash against the champions is up next, and we take a look at our meetings in the three previous seasons. It has been a steady rise for the boys as they have been closing the gap ever since they suffered back to back defeats against the record league winners in the first two seasons. They now stand at three victories in the last four meetings against Gor Mahia across all competitions.
The first game in our premier league history was against Gor Mahia and it was a baptism of fire for the boys as Gor ran out victors on a 3-1 score line in the match played at the Thika Municipal Stadium. Ugandan Mathew Tayo was the scorer of the only the game.
The reverse fixture in Kisumu played on October 17th saw Gor Mahia win again with a 3-1 score line to complete a double over the Sharks. Masud Juma was on the scoresheet.
The first leg encounter against Gor in our second season was a close tie with the boys showing great confidence and composure when up against the champions but unfortunately lost 2-1. Bolton Omwenga scored the only goal for the Sharks.
The second leg in Kisumu saw the Champions win yet again this time with a 3-0 score line, to complete a double against the Sharks for the second season running.
The first leg match at Kasarani saw the boys grab their first win over the champions courtesy of a Duke Abuya first half goal. This had come just hot on the heals of another 1-0 win over the Champions in the league curtain raiser.
The second leg, in Kisumu was another close and exciting tie but the boys were unfortunate to lose 2-1 with Kapaito scoring the only goal for the Sharks.
The boys also have a FKF Shield Cup quarter final victory in 2018 against Gor Mahia, meaning that they have emerged victorious in three of their last four meetings against Gor Mahia. With such, they will surely fancy their chances.
