Kenyan Premier League (KPL) record winners Gor Mahia FC will play Ugandan champions KCCA FC and Sudanese giants as part of preparations for their forthcoming CAF Champions League assignments.

The two international friendly matches will sandwich their Super Cup clash against arch-rivals AFC Leopards at Nakuru’s Afraha Stadium on January 28.

Gor will play KCCA a week in advance of the Super Cup showdown and host Al Hilal two days after the KPL curtain raiser.

The 16-time champions will then host Leones Vegetarianos from Equatorial Guinea at the Kenyattta Stadium in Machakos for the first leg of their CAF preliminary round encounter.

The K’Ogalo have already lost the services of captain Musa Mohamed and midfielder Kenneth Muguna who are set to reunite with former head coach Jose Marcelo ‘Ze Maria’ Ferreira at FK Tirana in Albania.

They have however been boosted by a couple of marquee signings including Ivorian striker Ephrem Guikan, former Tusker FC midfielder Humphrey Mieno and ex-Sofapaka defender Wesley Onguso.

More positive news arrived on Thursday afternoon after winger George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo inked a new two-year deal that will keep him at the club until June 2019.

On Wednesday the champions named strong squad for the CAF champions league matches as they eye a decent run on the continental front.

Goalkeepers: Shaban Odhoji, Fredrick Odhiambo and Boniface Oluoch.

Defenders: Charles Momanyi, Godfrey Walusimbi, Wellington Ochieng, Joachim Oluoch, Harun Shakava, Joash Onyango and Wesley Onguso.

Midfielders: Kevin Omondi, Ernest Wendo, Humphrey Mieno, Philemon Otieno, Bernard Ondiek, Francis Kahata, Lawrence Juma and Cercidy Lumumba.

Forwards: Jacques Tuyisenge, Ephrem Guikan, Meddie Kagere, Samuel Onyango, Boniface Omondi and George Odhiambo.
