K’Ogalo has started to feel the weight of congestion in the fixtures

Gor Mahia have found themselves in a peculiar situation with two fixtures to honor in a single day.

League organizers KPL and SportPesa are yet to agree on which match, between Hull City and Ulinzi Stars should Gor Mahia honor on Sunday, May 13.

Gor Mahia are set to play Ulinzi Stars in a league match on Sunday at Afraha Stadium, the same day they are set to host Hull City in a promotional match at Kasarani Stadium.

KPL Chief Operations and Logistics Officer Frank Okoth say they are yet to decide whether to postpone Ulinzi Stars match.

That decision, though, will leave Gor Mahia with four catch up matches in the league and with Caf Confederation Cup fixtures still to honor, K’Ogalo has started to feel the weight of congestion in the fixtures.

Things are made worse for the defending champions by the fact that the 2018 KPL season is set to wind up a month earlier, on October 1, in line with Caf recommendation.
