Former AFC Leopards coach James Nandwa believes that Gor Mahia will always be ahead of Ingwe if some structures are not changed at the Den.
The two sides are preparing for return leg of their respective continental assignments after registering mixed results last weekend.
K’Ogalo have a relatively easy task of defending its win away in Equatorial Guinea having won the opening round of Caf Champions League match 2-0 at home against Leones Vegetarianos.
AFC Leopards, on the other hand, will need to get at least a high scoring draw away to Madagascar to stand a chance of progressing to the first round of Caf Confederation Cup after drawing 1-1 at home with Fosa Juniors.
Nandwa thinks that the ‘Green Army’s’ good performance in recent past is brought about by consistency, something that is missing at their rivals.
“Most of the players at Gor Mahia have played together for a long time and as a matter of fact, they understand each other well," Nandwa told Goal.
“Leopards should also try and develop that culture, not bringing in a new team every season. Sometimes it is not easy, but for a team to perform better there has to be some level of consistency.”
Ingwe last won the Kenyan Premier League in 1999.
