Gor Mahia captain Harun Shakava is expecting a tough encounter when they face Petro Atletico of Angola on Sunday.
Each side needs maximum points to be assured of a quarter-final slot in the Caf Confederation Cup. Shakava says the Kenyan Premier League champions have to capitalize on the home advantage to get a favorable result.
"This is going to be a tough game for sure; we need three points as well as our opponents. It is like a final whereby only a win can make you a champion.
Yes, we have a slight advantage considering the fact that we are playing at home, but that does not mean we are automatically in.
"I urge the fans to turn out in large numbers and support us. We need them so much, it will encourage and motivate us," Shakava told Goal.
Egyptian side Zamalek leads the standings with eight points, one more than Petro Atletico and Hussein Dey who are placed second and third respectively.
