Gor Mahia coach Bobby Williamson insists he should not have been forced to play Saturday's GOtv shield match against GFE 105 at Moi Stadium in Kisumu.
A disappointed Williamson said the match should have been cancelled as he did not have more than three first team players.
"The rules are very clear that if a team does not have more than three of their first team players then they can postpone a match. It happened to us but we were not given that opportunity. We were still forces to play and this is rather disappointing,” Williamson told Goal.
He added: "The fans were fantastic and gave us all the support but it is disappointing they had to go away without a win."
K’Ogalo exited the knock out competition on penalty shot out after both teams had tied 1-1 on normal time. Gor Mahia reached the final of the last competition and lost 1-0 to rivals AFC Leopards' at Nyayo Stadium.
