Gor Mahia are set to play Equatorial Guinea champions Leones Vegeterianos at Machakos this Saturday. It marks the first time that Kogalo will be playing a continental assignment outside the three big cities.
Coach Kerr is is trying to prepare his side despite not knowing anything about the Equato-Guinean side.
“It is a tough game for us considering that we don’t know much about our opponents. We are going into the match blind but they have probably had a chance to see some of our games.” he said.
Kerr also noted that he had spoken to several of his contacts all over the continent but none of them know anything.
Kerr wants to keep the team focused on the task ahead.
“My work is to prepare the players mentally so that they can focus on picking positive results and understand what is at stake in this match,” he continued.
Kerr was looking forward to measuring the strength of his side against Sudanese champions Al Hilal on Tuesday but the match was canceled. In fact Al Hilal had not announced the match against Gor Mahia.
On last weekends match, Kerr was dissapointed that his side did not score more.
“It was a good game against Nakumatt but was disappointed with the score line. We created at least 12 clear chances and should probably have scored more goals. But compared to our Saturday fixture, that was a different ball game. The expectations are different. Furthermore, we also have to get used to the new stadium in order to get it right,” he told the Standard..
