NAIROBI, Kenya, September 30- Gor Mahia head coach Bobby Williamson has called on the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) to officially award the league leaders their abandoned match against Sony Sugar to reflect on the standings.
With K’Ogalo five points clear of second placed Sofapaka, Williamson said the continued delay in factoring in the points from the contentious tie was making the league look closer than it really is.
Last week, KPL Chief Executive Officer, Jack Oguda, said the matter is in a judicial process and will be heard before Football Kenya Federation Appeals committee after both clubs make submissions and wait for a hearing date.
“I don’t understand why KPL wants to make the league close when actually its not, we deserve those three points because Gor Mahia never caused problems.
“The home team (Sony Sugar) was in charge of security and their players over reacted that is why they deserve to lose points.
“As far as am concerned we should have eight points lead and must be reflected on the league table,” the former Uganda Cranes coach told after K’Ogalo beat Chemilil Sugar 1-0 on Saturday at Nyayo National stadium.
The match played at the Awendo Green Stadium a month ago was abandoned in the 84th minute when Sony players protested an equalising goal by Gor Mahia’s David Owino.
The score stood at 2-2 at the time of the abandonment.
With six matches to go before 2013 Kenyan Premier League comes to a conclusion, Gor are perched at the top of the League with 44 points five ahead of second placed Sofapaka while the Sugar Millers are just above relegation zone positioned 14th with 26 points.
With four games to go, the three points would leave Gor requiring two wins to wrap up their first domestic crown since 1995.
