Striker Dennis Oliech has been named in Gor Mahia's Caf Champions League squad for the 2019/20 season.

Oliech, who missed the latter part of the 2018/19 season due to a fractured hand, has been included in the striking department which also consists of newcomers Dickson Ambundo, Gislain Yikpe Gnamien, and Francis Afriyie.

Youngsters Eliud Lokuwom and Erick Ombija, together with Kennedy Otieno - who was recently signed from Western Stima - have not been included though.

Midfielder Hashim Sempala has also missed as he nears the exit door despite donning K'Ogalo's jersey for only one season since his arrival from Tusker.

Assistant head coach Patrick Odhiambo will take charge of the team when they take on Aigle Noir of Burundi in the preliminary round of Caf Champions League stage. Head coach Hassan Oktay was granted leave to attend to family issues.

Gor Mahia will face the Burundian champions on August 11 in Bujumbura in the first leg tie before a reverse fixture two weeks later.
