McKinstry has appeared to hint he is not necessarily looking to lift his second league title in charge of Gor Mahia unbeaten.

Gor Mahia coach Johnathan McKinstry has sensationally claimed that his charges “can afford to slip '' after establishing a 12 point lead at the top of the ongoing FKFPL season.

K'ogalo lead the table on 43 points, a whole 10 above second-placed City Stars and 12 ahead of Tusker, who pushed them the closest last season, and with 15 games to go, look on course to delivering a record 21st title.

They could also go unbeaten, having not lost any game so far this season, but McKinstry has appeared to hint that he is not going for that record.

“We don’t want to slip up but even if we were to stumble, we have given ourselves some sort of cushion over the first 19 games of the season that says you can afford to slip but you will still be able to recover and go again,” McKisntry said.

The Northern Irish tactician has unbelievably hinted that the side has security in those 10 points even should they afford to get complacent and lose their healthy lead a little bit.

“We want to keep it going but now I think the boys can afford to relax a little bit more serious but relaxing and enjoying their football.”

His comments could come as a shock to some fans who would ideally want the side to win the title without a blemish, replicating their 2015 season when they managed to lift the league title without losing a single game.

They also managed to achieve that fete in 1976, and should they finish this season unbeaten, it will create a record that has never before been achieved in the history of Kenyan football.
