Gor Mahia coach Zradvko Logarusic is a worried man ahead of Saturday's continental match against Anse Reunion of Seychelles.
Logarusic says his team is still in the middle of preparations and would have preferred the fixture to come after six weeks but insisted that they will make do with what they have.
"If you ask me, I think the game has come at the wrong time. We are in the middle of our preparations and would have preferred to play this match after six weeks."
"However, as it is we have to make do with what we have and we are not here to cry or moan about the result," Logarusic told Goal.com.
Logarusic reiterated that the team is eying at least a second round placing in this year's competition.
"We must go to the second round. This is our target and irreducible minimum for this particular campaign," he said.
Logarusic admitted the absence of some key players will affect the team." Edwin Lavatsa is injured. We don't have Israel Emuge and not all our players are fit for the fixture due to various reasons. The only player who is assured of a starting place is Paul Kiongera," he said.
Gor chairman Ambrose Rachier said gate charges will cost Sh300 for terraces and Sh1000 for those sitting in the VIP area. He said all arrangements have been made to ensure the match goes on without any hitch.
