K’Ogalo will lock horns with the FKF Shield Cup winners in the eagerly awaited curtain raiser that will usher in the new season
The custodian has been improving in every single game and is expected to lead the Sharks against Gor Mahia. His judgement should be perfect and on point. He has to ensure he commands his line well and make saves when called into action by the opponents.
With the absence of Pascal Ogweno, who joined Gor Mahia, Bodo has a new partner in Nickson Omondi. The duo did well in their last outing together against Arta Solar of Djibouti, but all the same this will be a different match. He should effectively marshal the defense.
Gor Mahia strength lies in the midfield and the only way to stop them from playing is by cutting distribution from the department. Well, Omotto is not good at breaking attacks but he is excellent at keeping possession and ball distribution and that is what he should do.
Mazembe has been excellent of late on the wings, creating chance after chance, and he is more incisive compared to last season. He should ensure the fullbacks have work to do and when he gets a chance he should try and put it away.
The towering striker is one of the most experienced players and while at Bandari, he tasted victory against Gor Mahia. That is enough motivation for him to work harder in the attacking front and help the Sharks claim their second major trophy after winning the Shield Cup last season.
