Goal lists the players the new K’Ogalo coach will bank on when they take on the visiting Burundian side in the return leg of the duel at Kasarani

  • Gor Mahia keeper David Mapigano with KPL Super Cup trophy.

    David Mapigano

    The Tanzanian keeper made his debut against Aigle Noir in the first leg of the Caf Champions League and kept a clean sheet before doing the same a week ago against Bandari FC in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) Super Cup. Mapigano will have to be alert once again and stop the Aigle Noir strikers from getting the away goal, which would dent K’Ogalo’s hope of advancing to the next round.
  • Joash Onyango of Gor Mahia and Charles Momanyi plus Yema Mwana of Bandari FC.

    Joash Onyango

    Gor Mahia fans call him ‘the Beast’ because of his ruthless approach when defending for his team. He was among the key stars for coach Steven Polack in the first leg, and he should once again be a dependable figure at the back on Sunday. Onyango has to make sure the back four is well-covered but also avoid committing blunders which can lead to a penalty for the opponent.
  • Kenneth Muguna of Gor Mahia v Jackson Macharia of Tusker

    Kenneth Muguna

    Muguna has started his stint as the K’Ogalo captain in a good way, thanks to the barren draw away against Aigle Noir and the KPL Super Cup win against Bandari. He is aiming to lead the team to the Group Stage of the competition and must start with a win on Sunday. The captain must dictate the tempo in midfield and pull the strings when there is an opportunity to surge forward.
  • Gor Mahia scorer Lawrence Juma with KPL Super Cup trophy.

    Lawrence Juma

    Juma is expected to be the creative mind in the K’Ogalo midfield. He is a natural hard-worker who tries to make things happen even with the slightest chance. His goal against Bandari won the KPL Super Cup for Gor Mahia meaning currently, the midfielder is oozing with confidence. Creating goals for the strikers and pushing for goals will be his main job.
  • Nicholas Kipkirui of Gor Mahia scores past Ezekiel Owade of AFC Leopards.

    Nicholas Kipkirui

    The former Zoo Kericho forward is known for his pace and dribbling skills as well as precise finishing. Gor Mahia will need someone who can drive them forward, and it is where Kipkirui comes in against the Burundian side. He will also be required to track back and help in defending when the team is under attack.
