Nairobi - Kenya’s representatives in this year’s CAF continental matches are upping their preperations ahead of their matches this Saturday.
Gor Mahia, who won the FKL Cup last year, will be representing Kenya in the CAF Confederations Cup and will kick off their campaign on Saturday in Maputo, when they face Mozambique side Ferroviaro. K’ogalo will leave the country on Friday morning for the match on Saturday.
In preparation, Gor have increased their training sessions from one to two. They will be training in the evenings at the City Stadium, which is an artificial, similar to the one they will play on in their Saturday match.
They will be training at the Highway secondary school in the mornings, mostly for physical aspect. They are expected to announce their squad later this week before leaving for Maputo.
Tusker, on the other hand, who are the Kenyan Premier league Champions will be representing the country in the CAF Champions’ league. Fresh from winning the DSTV Super Cup two weeks ago and a bright start to their title defense, Tusker will be beaming with confidence as they welcome Rwandese giants APR in Nairobi this Saturday.
Tusker have shifted their training base from Nairobi to Limuru where they will be looking to increase their concentration ahead of the match.
Tusker coach Sammy “Pamzo” Omollo will be worried by injuries to some of his key players but will be boosted by the return of Dennis Mukaisi and Brian Mandela, both of whom missed the league’s opener against City Stars due to injury.
