After having easily sidelined Nairobi Water in the round of 64, Gor Mahia will now face a sterner test as they take on Bandari in the round of 32 of the 2017 GoTV Shield.
Bandari have not been an easy team for Kogalo. This season, Kogalo beat Bandari 2-1 at Mbaraki on April 26. However last season, Bandari opened their campaign by beating a troubled Gor Mahia side in the Supercup.
Bandari will be without former Kogalo stalwart Dan Sserunkuma who has left for Morocco. However they can still count of the experience of players like Edwin Lavatsa, Enock Agwanda, Felly Mulumba and Shaban Kenga.
Kogalo last lifted this trophy in 2012.
