Gor Mahia FC will lack the services of striker Dennis Oliech and Ugandan defender Shafik Batambuze when they take on Egypt’s Zamalek in a Group ‘D’ CAF Confederations Cup match this Sunday.
‘Kogallo’ are in Cairo to face the Egyptian giants in a must-win match but Coach Hassan Oktay will be without Dennis Oliech who is out injured and Ugandan defender Shafik Batambuze who is serving a ban.
The 1-0 defeat in the hands of Hussein Dey at the Juillet stadium, saw Gor Mahia lose their spot at the top of the Group while Zamalek’s 1-0 away win over Petro Atletico of Angola, threw the group’s qualification for the quarter-finals wide open with two matches to go.
The top two teams in the group will progress to the next round.
Meanwhile, Ushuru FC head coach Ken Kenyatta has lauded the impact of young striker Brian Yakhama.
The 19-year-old has been on top form this season and is currently among the National Super League top scorers this season having scored a total of seven goals.
Yakhama was on target on Monday against Kangemi Black Stars in the 3-0 win at Camp Toyoyo, and the tactician feels he is destined for greatness.
Ushuru is currently leading the table with 41 points; three more than second and third-placed Nairobi Stima and Wazito
