Visiting Hull City praying for a win against Gor Mahia

This will be the second time in one year for Gor Mahia to play an English side having narrowly lost to Everton 2-1 in Tanzania

English side Hull City is hopeful of getting a win against Kenya Premier League champions Gor Mahia at Kasarani Stadium on Sunday.

Head of Hull City medical team Rob Price says Gor Mahia is a good side that promises a tough game. “We want to win the match, every team plays to win and we are hoping for the same,” Price told Goal on Friday.

According to Price, it will be a game like no other, revealing that Hull is weary of the Kenyan champions. “For sure we are worried of Gor Mahia, we have seen their games on videos and we have to be cautious as a team.

"They are also good on penalties and that is why we must be very cautious.”
