The Kenyan champions will head into the fixture with a dented ego having lost the last game to Petro Atletico away in Angola

Gor Mahia has another daunting task when they take on Algerian side NA Hussein Dey in the Caf Confederation Cup.

The Kenyan champions has so far managed to get three points that came from the 4-2 win against Zamalek in a Group D opener, before falling 2-1 away to Petro Atletico of Angola in Luanda last week.

Hussein Dey is the only unbeaten side in the Group; after a 2-1 win at home against the Angolan side, the North African team went on to hold Zamalek to a one all draw to go top of the group with four points.

Caf assignments have no short-cuts, winning all your matches at home and pushing for at least a draw away is the only way to progress to the quarter finals. It is all about taking full advantage of the home matches.

Goal parades some of the players, who can push K'Ogalo to another win on Sunday.

    The captain will have to give his best to ensure that the opponents do not get into the danger zone. Leadership will be key at the back and the main thing is to make sure that the fast forwards at Hussein Dey are tamed before they cause harm.

    Philemon Otieno

    Otieno missed the game against Petro Atletico in Angola, but he is back and ready to claim his position. He should be cautious in his position and stop the wingers from cutting in. He will also have to limit his movement going forward to stop rival wingers from creating space.

  • Ernest Wendo of Gor Mahia v Nyasa Big Bullets.

    Ernest Wendo

    Just like Otieno, Wendo was missed against Petro Atletico. His main job will be to stop the attacks channeled through the midfield. He will have to control the tempo and take full control of the proceedings to reduce chances of conceding at home.

  • Nicholas Kipkirui and Shafik Batambuze of Gor Mahia v Zamalek.

    Nicholas Kipkirui

    The former Zoo Kericho player has already scored two goals in as many matches for his team in the continental scene. His pace, skills and dribbling will be key to help unsettle the Hussein Dey side, who are still unbeaten in the Group.

  • Gor Mahia striker Jaxques Tuyisenge v AFC Leopards.

    Jacques Tuyisenge

    After hitting a brace against Zamalek, he missed the second Group match away in Angola owing to suspension. The Rwandan striker is now back and will offer direction at the attacking zone and ensure his team gets the much needed goals.
