Gor Mahia booked a quarter-final place in Cecafa after beating AS Port of Djibouti 2-0 in the last Group B match on Thursday.
Ephraim Guikan beat his marker to pace, but his ferocious left-foot shot was well checked by AS Port custodian. A nice build up engineered by Innocent Wafula from the centre line resulted into a goal after Philemon Otieno put K’Ogalo ahead in the 14th minute.
The body language of Gor Mahia players, however, revealed that something deep could be going on with reports from Tanzania indicating that players are yet to be paid their allowances.
Charles Momanyi doubled Gor Mahia’s lead, just five minutes to the break and once again, there was no much celebration from K’Ogalo players save for high-fives and little hugs here and there from a few teammates.
Boniface Oluoch kept Gor Mahia’s two goal lead with a nice save a minute into the break after AS Port broke into the danger zone.
Gor Mahia joined Group B leaders Rayon Sports and AS Port, who also booked their place in the quarters as best losers.
