When they return, back to back home games against Yanga in the CAF Confederation Cup await them before they face Rayon Sport at home and fly to North Africa to take on USM Alger in Algeria.On top of that, the club will travel to Liverpool, United Kingdom where they are scheduled to play a friendly match against English Premier League side Everton. This will come at a cost as they will have to squeeze into midweek catch up ties in the league.Also, the record 16-time Kenyan Premier League champions are in the round of 16 for the Football Kenya Federation Cup where they have been pooled against Posta Rangers.“It’s a massive task that we set ourselves into and we need to ensure we are up to the challenge. The next six weeks are going to be big for us and we need to be at our best. It has been tough already because we have played three matches within a week and it is taking a toll on us,” the tactician said.Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr issues instruction to skipper Harun Shakava during the Sportpesa Super Cup at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru in June 2018.

This, he knows will come at a cost.“We will get beaten at some point so the matter of going unbeaten is not really on our minds. The most important thing is that we get to achieve our targets,” he noted.The tactician has been rotating his squad throughout the season, using his best 11 sparingly and handing the rookies more playing time in the league and cup assignments.On Thursday against Sony Sugar, Boniface Oluoch, Harun Shakava and Humphrey Mieno were all rested. It is expected that he will also rotate the squad during the Kagame Cup in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.Gor Mahia midfielder Ernest Wendo in action against Sony Sugar during a Kenyan Premier League match at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu on June 29, 2018.

It’s a great opportunity for me to better what l did in Rwanda. I will work hard to help the team to achieve the best,” Mustafa told the official Gor Mahia website after penning his contract in Nairobi.Mustafa’s signing is the only transfer business K’Ogalo will transact with the transfer window set to be close on July 2.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
