Fans erected a huge banner inside the stadium saying âIn Logarusic We
Trustâ at the top and âOffice Keep off the Coaching Departmentâ at the bottom in a rare show of support for the Croatian.
There were reports early in the week of interference by some club officials in the technical bench causing Logarusic to complain that he did not have full support in handling the team.
Former Tusker striker George Midenyo opened the account for Gor in the
26th minute with a brilliant shot that left Ronnie Kagunzi in goal stranded. It was Midenyoâs first league goal for Gor Mahia after signing from Tusker four months ago. Midenyo set-up Baldwin Ngwa to score the second goal six minutes later but City Stars goalkeeper will take some blame for allowing the goal.
Kagunzi should have held onto a Midenyo harmless shot but he let it go only for Ngwa to tap it home and sent the fans into frenzy.
City Stars had appeared the better side when the match kicked off and had more chances but it was still surprising why Coach Gideon Ochieng had left out top scorer Dan Serunkuma from the starting line-up.
The Ugandan import came on early in the second half and scored for the losers in the 68th minute after winning the ball from Teddy Akumu another second half substitute.
City Stars maintained huge chunks of possession the second half as Gor fought to defend their slim lead breathing a sigh of relief as the centre referee blew the final whistle.
