Gor Mahia face an acid test against Egyptian side ENPPI on Friday. The Egyptians will not have much home support because the match will be played in a military camp with no fans allowed. This is because of the lack of security currently prevailing in Cairo.
Gor Mahia will be without Raphael Kiongera. It is a significant blow considering that he has been one of the in form players. Also missing will be Moses Odhiambo and Ivan Anguyo.
“I thought Kiongera and Odhiambo would recover in time but as it is, they are out of the game. Kiongera cannot even kick the ball, he is still in pain, while Odhiambo cannot run with the pain on his back,. “As for Anguyo, he may start depending on how he overcomes the stomach bug,” said Logarusic to the Nation.
In place of Kiongera, Logarusic will depend on Edwin Lavatsa, Danny Ssserunkuma and / or Rama Salim who himself has been nursing a knock.
Gor Mahia will be hoping for a positive result away. Conceding a high number of goals away will put Gor Mahia in a precarious position. On the other hand, Kogalo has had a good record away from home lately. No Kenyan team has ever recorded a draw or a win in Cairo. Here’s hoping Kogalo will be the first.
