A goal from Jacques Tuyisenge, a brace by Ephram Guikan and a Haji Mwinyi own goal was all Gor Mahia needed to register a 4-0 win against Tanzania side Yanga SC.
The win came in the right time for the Kenyan champions, who are also set to face rivals AFC Leopards in a derby on Sunday.
Midfielder Humphrey Mieno, who was crowned man of the match, is happy with the way his teammates played and the end result.Giants Gor Mahia were at their flawless best tearing Yanga of Tanzania apart in a 4-0 crushing win in a Caf-Confederations Group ‘D’ tie played at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani on Wednesday evening.
Ivorian Ephrem Guikan, wasteful in the recent assignment in the Cecafa Kagame Cup led the rout; scoring a brace while Jacques Tuyisenge and Charles Momanyi were also on target to record the comfortable victory.
Tuyisenge opened the scoring sheet in the 22nd minute before Guikan found the mark shortly before the break as Gor romped to a huge victory, the first for the Dylan Kerr coached charges in their Group’ D’ matches.
Despite missing injured first team regulars Ernest Wendo, George Odhiambo and suspended Joash Onyango, Gor were too strong for the Tanzanians who now lie last in the group with just a point.
From three matches, Algeria’s USM Algers top the group with seven points, having beaten both Yanga and Rayon Sport of Rwanda, and drawing with Gor.
