Haron Shakava has admitted that there is fatigue in Gor Mahia's squad, but the skipper says that will not be a hindrance when they take on rivals AFC Leopards on Sunday.

K’Ogalo will play their second match in less than four days at Kasarani, where they registered their first victory in Caf Confederation Cup against Yanga on Wednesday.

Having endured a vigorous two-week show at the just concluded Cecafa Kagame Cup in Tanzania, Gor Mahia was left with a number of casualties.

Among the injured are Ernest Wendo, George Odhiambo and goalkeeper Boniface Oluoch, who picked a knock a few hours before the Yanga match.

“Fatigue is there, but that is not a big issue. I hope the coach will be able to rotate the squad,” Shakava said in a post-match press conference on Friday.

Gor Mahia are enjoying a 14 point difference between them and fifth-placed AFC Leopards, with three games at hand.
