It will be the team's first match without the services of Brazilian coach Ze Maria, who threw in the towel on Thursday. Interim coach Zedekiah 'Zico' Otieno is targeting maximum points against the 2009 champions. "Our priorities remain the same, we want to win the league this season.
"Our match against Sofapaka is a test to the boys but we have to show our mental strength by winning it. We want maximum points against Sofapaka and continue with our good run in the league. Yes, we are ready for the match, the players shape is encouraging but we want to show that on the pitch."
Gor Mahia is leading the 18 team log with 27 points, same with second placed Tusker, who have an inferior goal difference.
