Goal looks at the key players’ new K’Ogalo coach Steven Polack will rely on when they take on the Burundian side in the first leg on Sunday

  • Gor Mahia keeper Fredrick Odhiambo.

    Fredrick Odhiambo

    The youngster stole the show for Gor Mahia in the continental assignments last season and is certain to start ahead of new signing David Mapigano. Odhiambo has to ensure he helps his team keep a clean sheet away by making saves and organising his defense well.
  • Joash Onyango of Gor Mahia v Nyasa Big Bullets FC.

    Joash Onyango

    The defender is one of the most experienced players in the team. One thing for sure, he will have to marshal the defense and stop the attackers from getting close to his goal. However, he has to avoid committing silly mistakes at the back to avoid a caution or being sent off.
  • Kenneth Muguna.

    Kenneth Muguna

    Muguna was officially handed the captaincy last week and will have an extra responsibility on the pitch. He has to push other players to give the best, but it has to start with him. He has to string passes in the midfield and help in commanding it to avoid disappointments in the away fixture.
  • Boniface Omondi of Gor Mahia v Chemelil Sugar

    Boniface Omondi

    His brilliance helped the team to take points and wins in vital matches last season. Pace, intelligence and an eye for goal are his major strengths, which he has to capitalise on against the Burundian side. But he will have to help the defenders as well, especially when they lose possession.
  • Nicholas Kipkirui of Gor Mahia scores past Ezekiel Owade of AFC Leopards.

    Nicholas Kipkirui

    The former Zoo Kericho forward proved last season he is the real deal for the Kenyan champions. This is an early test for him to show he can fit into the shoes of Francis Kahata and Jacques Tuyisenge, who have left the club. He will be the key striker for the side and must strive to get goals in the first leg.
