    The captain has started his reign well, and so far he has not suffered defeat. The game against Esperance is undoubtedly his biggest test, and he has to show he has what it takes to take the team forward. Shakava has to command his line well and ensure the opponent do not get a chance to score. His leadership skills will be under intense test and it is up to him to ensure he passes with flying colors.

  2. Wesley Onguso
    Goal Kenya.

    Was introduced in the match against Bandari and he arguably put a man of the match performance. He was quick in defending and gave a helping hand in attack. But against Esperance, Onguso has to get his tactics right because overlapping and losing the ball, will expose him badly considering the electric pace always associated with North African teams.

  3. Ernest Wendo
    Goal Kenya.

    Slick and fast passing is always the style of play for Esperance, and players always enjoy playing it through the midfield. It will be Wendo's job to ensure he breaks all those attacks considering the fact that Humphrey Mieno is not a natural defensive midfielder. Wendo has to avail that perfect link between defense and midfield and ensure he initiates attacks.

  4. Meddie Kagere
    Goal Kenya.

    The Rwandan striker always gives more than 110%. One thing about him is his ambition and determination to hurt the opponent and that is what coach Dylan Kerr will want in the offensive department. With his dribbling skills, eye for goal as well as killer pass, Kagere is expected to be a thorn in the Esperance defense.

  5. Francis Kahata
    Goal Kenya.

    This man's creativity is second to none, and he will be a factor in unlocking the defense. He knows when to dribble and when to pass, and with a perfect understanding between him and fellow attackers in the middle of the pack, Gor Mahia will definitely roar to victory.
