Substitute Benard Ondiek's strike was all Gor Mahia needed to edge out Nyasa Big Bullets by a solitary goal in a Caf Champions League duel on Wednesday.
K’Ogalo came into the match without the services of influential Francis Kahata, who is reportedly on his way out and defender Karim Nizigiyimana, who was not included in the Caf Champions League squad.
When all seemed destined for a barren draw, Ondiek managed to get his way past the water tight defence before hitting the back of the net to give his team a slim advantage ahead of the second leg.
A number of Kenyans have reacted to the outcome of the match and below is what they had to say.
I have a bad feeling about the slender 1-0 win over Nyasa Bullets. Anything can happen in Malawi come next week. Maybe this season is not for Gor Mahia after all.

A 93rd minute winner from Bernard Ondiek enough to hand Kogalo a slim 1-0 win in the #CAFCL preliminary round 1st leg. We meet again in Blantyre in 10 days.

we literally dodged a bullet @OfficialGMFC !!!! Good part is in Malawi they have to attack and they will open up spaces at the back, not shut them. Let finish the job there..... — Mike Okinyi (@MikeOkinyi) November 28, 2018
