Nuttall Hails a ‘Point Closer to the Title’ against All Stars

Gor Mahia boss Frank Nuttall played down suggestions of two points lost as his side were held to a 1-1 draw by bottom club Nakuru All Stars in their Wednesday evening league clash at the Nyayo Stadium.

Nuttall, back on the touchline after missing last weekend’s 3-1 defeat of All Stars’neighbours at the bottom Nairobi City Stars, saw his side struggle to get a grip in the game, especially in the second half where they conceded the equalizer.

All Stars a good side

“It’s outrageous for anyone to think that we can go to every game and get three points,” Nutall told FourFourTwoMedia. “Despite All Stars being at the bottom, they are a good side and you could see how they played.”

“So for us, we didn’t lose two points in the match, we gained a point, which means we are a point closer to winning the league.”

Fortuitous opener

Gor Mahia did not score in the match as All Stars’ Josephat Oyugi scored an own goal inside two minutes to hand the league leaders the lead. Substitute Bebeto Lamba netted a second half equalizer with an overhead kick that looped over Boniface Oluoch to ensure the points were shared in the top versus bottom meeting.

Next for the back-to-back Kenya Premier League champions is the Mashemeji Derby against AFC Leopards on Sunday.

“We will take a rest, then prepare for the match just like we always do when facing other teams,” the Scot said.
