Yikpe brace inspires Gor past Ingwe
Gor now moves to the top of the log with 18 points with two matches on hand. Coach Steven Polack, enjoyed his first Mashemeji Derby, praised his charges but urged them to be consistent in their performance.
“It feels good to win a local derby but the first half definitely belonged to AFC Leopards but they did not take their chances. Our halftime pep talk changed everything for us and we played better in the second half. I laud the boys for the effort but we have 27 more league games and we have to replicate the performance,” he said after the match.
Ivorian forward Gnamien Gislain Yikpe opened his goal account in the league in style by grabbing a brace as reigning champions Gor Mahia edged AFC Leopards 4-1 in the 88th Mashemeji Derby played at the Moi International Sports Center in Kasarani on Sunday 10th November.
