Coach comments 

“We could have won by a larger margin but as usual we missed a couple of good chances. However I am happy with dominated the match and won. It was hard to beat Sony who defended in numbers and made it very difficult for us. We have a tight schedule and its not easy for us to plan and train for these matches the way I would like but all the same, I am happy we won.” – Gor Mahia Head Coach, Dylan Kerr 

“We played well but were wasteful upfront. Our game plan was to be cautious in the opening minutes and go all out as the game progressed and this is what we did. We were however very blunt upfront and therefore did not score. We have a young team and we are trying to restructure the team. I am optimistic we will perform better during the second leg and avoid relegation.” – Sony Sugar FC Head Coach, Patrick Odhiambo
