A solitary goal from substitute Eliud Lokuwam on the 77th minute helped league leaders Gor Mahia to pull a win over Chemelil Sugar in Nakuru today.
In a fixture that saw head coach Dylan Kerr rest many of regular starters, Chemelil had a good game in opening half with their custodian keeping Gor Mahia at bay with good saves.
Second half was different and with the Sugar men holding deep to defend, the pressure was on them as Gor side knock at their door minute after minute.
The introduction of Lokuwam added more pressure to Chemelil based team as his pace and skills kept the opponents on their heels all the time.
Lokuwam pounced on a long ball into the area and with the Chemelil keeper missing to pick it up, a perfect chance it was for Gor Mahia to grab the lead.
Lokuwam did a nice turn to bang it home to give Gor Mahia a goal that would help them bag maximum points.
With the win, Gor Mahia are now at 65 points and only five points are needed to seal it off for 2018 season and make it 17 league titles won – the highest in local football.
