K'Ogalo are yet to win away in the Caf competition this season and will be facing an Algerian side that is yet to lose at home
Gor Mahia will face a daunting task when they take on Hussein Dey of Algeria in a Group D match of the Caf Confederation Cup on Sunday.
The East African side managed to win 2-0 in the first leg staged in Nairobi last weekend, to go top of the table with six points from three games.
Here, Goal parades some of the players that K’Ogalo will rely on for a better result when they play away in Algeria.
Otieno was excellent in the first leg; managed to make several clearances and helped in the attack. He was outstanding throughout the entire game and was directly involved in the team's opening goal. Will have to be careful away though to avoid creating space for the hosts.
The Ugandan midfielder delivered in a perfect cross from the left that eventually fell to Francis Kahata, who scored Gor Mahia’s opener against Hussein Dey in the first leg. Just like Otieno, Batambuze was outstanding defensively and in attack and will have to do the same in Algeria.
The midfielder has been on the rise and it seems he has found his footing once again at K’Ogalo. He pulls the strings when he has an opportunity and ensures that there is a good display. When he has a chance, he capitalizes on it as well and should be relied on for goals.
Kahata has always been an influential figure for the team and his contribution cannot be ignored. Just like grease, the little man lubricates the midfield well and creates chances for the Kenyan side and will be relied on once again as K’Ogalo seeks for their first away win in Group D.
The Rwandan striker has already scored three goals from two Group D matches, the latest one coming against NA Hussein Dey last Sunday. His pace will be instrumental for K’Ogalo to threaten the North African side away from home.
