Gor Mahia stand-in coach Sammy ‘Pamzo’ Omolo believes that the return of young striker Benson Omala to the team will be a huge boost as they seek to make it to the first round of the CAF Champions League.
Omala has been away with the Kenya U20 team in the just concluded CECAFA U20 Championship and missed the first leg played in Rwanda last week. According to Omolo, the youngster’s energy will be a boost to the team’s attack.

“We know how important that match is to us and the good thing is that Benson Omala is back in the team. We all know what the youngster can bring to the team; energy and lethality. He will be key for us tomorrow,” Omolo is quoted by the club’s official portal.
On the game, the Posta Rangers coach believes they stand a huge chance of making it to the next round going by the goal they got away from home but will have to be tight in defence.

“We are all motivated with the result and an away goal we scored in Kigali last weekend. And with what I have seen in the team so far, I believe we can qualify to the next round.
“But we need to have a top-class defending and make good use of our chances. When we played in Kigali, we looked dangerous and created several chances and I believe tomorrow will not be different. If we do the right things tomorrow, we will win the match,” the tactician added.
The game is set to Kick Off at 4 pm EAT at Nyayo Stadium.
