Gor Mahia forward George Odhiambo will join midfielder Ernest Wendo on the stands when K'Ogalo takes on Yanga in a Caf Confederation Cup match on Wednesday.
Goal can authoritatively report that Odhiambo will not make it to the Matchday squad as Gor Mahia prepares to host the record Tanzanian champions.
Odhiambo is nursing an injury, same as Wendo, who picked a knock during Cecafa Kagame Cup match against Jeshi La Kujenga Uchumi of Zanzibar.
Odhiambo's absence might give Francis Mustapha a chance to make his continental debut for Gor Mahia, after joining the side from Rwandan Premier League in June.
Coach Dylan Kerr will also have more options up front in Ephraim Guikan and Kevin Omondi, who has been used sparingly in both the domestic and continental assignments.
