Gor Mahia coach Mark Harrison is confident they will arrest their run of two draws with victory against the Mailmen.

“Preparation-wise is as good as we can expect,” Harrison told the club’s official website ahead of the game. “We played a couple of days ago, so yesterday [Monday] was more of regeneration, and today [Tuesday] we just worked on our shape in readiness for the game on Wednesday [against Posta Rangers].

“Very little time to sort of straighten out things but we move to the next game with a target of maximum points.”

Harisson also confirmed three players - Peter Oudu Ernest Wendo, Adama Keita and Benson Omalla - will miss the fixture owing to various reasons.

“We will be missing Peter Oudu who is out with an injury and three other players Wendo, Adama, and Benson, who are out due to some other reasons which make it difficult.”

Probable XI for Gor Mahia: Mathews, Ng'ang'a, Shakava, Nkata, Mainge, Otieno, Odhiambo, Onyango, S. Onyango, Omondi, Ulimwengu.
