Gor Mahia set to host Al Hilal in high stakes friendly
After easily defeating Ugandan champions KCCA 4-2 in Nakuru last weekend in Nakuru, Gor Mahia have lined up yet another high stakes friendly against Sudan’s Al Hilal.
The contest is lined up for Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on February 6, the club’s assistant secretary Ronald Ngala confirmed.
The top Sudanese club, who pipped arch rivals El Merrreikh to the league title last season, are expected in the country a day before the clash.
“It is a big game for us and we will be ready for them even though at the moment we are thinking about the match against AFC Leopards on Sunday,” coach Dylan Kerr said.
The match coach Kerr made reference to is the KPL Super Cup which will be played on Sunday at Nakuru’s Afraha Stadium.
This will be the second time in as many years that Gor Mahia and Al Hilal are meeting in a pre-season friendly.
In January 2016, Gor triumphed 1-0 in Port Sudan, with Enock Agwanda scoring the all important goal.
This will be K’Ogalo’s third pre-season friendly ahead of the 2018 season which will also come with their participation in the Caf Africa Champions League.
