Gor Mahia head coach Mark Harrison is an elated man following his maiden win in the Mashemeji Derby.

Harrison witnessed his side beat rivals AFC Leopards 1-0 in a game of two halves thanks to a 25th minute goal from Boniface Omondi.

Speaking after the high profile match at the Kasarani Stadium, Harrison said that the hard-fought win is a morale booster for his side ahead of their CAF Confederations second leg match against Sudan’s Al Ahly Merowe.

Gor won the first leg in Egypt 1-3 thanks to goals from Sammy Onyango, Benson Omalla and Jules Ulimwengu.

“It was certainly a marvelous performance and the boys played according to the script. This most certainly serves as a major boost as we prepare for our return leg against Al Ahly Merowe,” said Harrison.

“There is no way we are going to be complacent. We know we are 3-1 up but we got to finish the job.”

“We came into this match with a lot of respect for our opponents and we had prepared well for a tough encounter. They were worthy opponents and gave us a hard time, I must admit,” added Harisson.

Gor will play Merowe on Sunday 24 October, at the Nyayo Stadium in Nairobi.
