Gor Mahia midfielder Macharia speaks out ahead of Sunday's Mashemeji Derby

The FKF Cup final pitting arch-rivals Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards is set to be played at Nyayo Stadium on Sunday. 

The match was initially set to be played at Utalii Grounds but was later moved to Nyayo Stadium with the date and kick-off time remaining unchanged. Gor Mahia midfielder John Macharia, who joined K'Ogalo from Thika last year says he is looking forward to the clash terming it as do or die tie. 

"This derby means a lot to me as a player and to the team as well," said the midfielder. 

"It's the only chance we have this season to participate in the CAF. It is a do-or-die match. We have to win because we believe we are still the best," he concluded. 

The winner of the final will be entitled to a KES 2 Million cash prize as well as a chance to represent the country in the CAF Confederations Cup.

The second-placed team gets KES 1 Million while the third and fourth-placed team gets KES 750,000 and KES 500,000 respectively.
