Gor have Tunisia mountain to climb

07 March 2014, 10:22

Nairobi - Kenya Premier League champions, Gor Mahia, have a daunting task ahead of them when they prepare for a clash with Tunisia's Esperance in a Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League encounter away in Tunis.

Ahead of Sunday’s match, Gor Mahia, who fell 3-2 against Esperance in Nairobi last weekend need nothing short of a clear two-goal cushion in order to progress to the next stage of the CAF's elite and prestigious African club tournament.

The team, which flew into Tunisia in batches, is expected to start training together on Friday before making final touches on Saturday ahead of the crucial tie.

Gor Mahia officials expected in Tunis on Friday afternoon include Ambrose Rachier and Ronald Ngala, who will touch down with several other players who could not travel on Thursday.

Those that arrived on Thursday comprise head coach Bobby Williamson, club deputy Secretary General Anima Oketch, Dan Sserunkuma, Geoffrey Kizito, David Owino, Anthony Akumu, Timonah Wanyonyi and Musa Mohamed.

Officials said despite the onus to overturn the score, morale in the camp was high following a warm reception in the Tunisian capital.

Gor Mahia need at least an outright 2-0 victory to avoid elimination, something most football analysts, soccer administrators, players and fans were in doubt would be attainable owing to the Tunisian’s formidable record in the competition.
