Gor Mahia FC reached the FKF Shield quarter-finals as its largely second string side dispatched Posta Rangers 3-1 at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani.

The victory was the latest reminder of the depth in Gor’s squad with Kevin ‘Ade’ Omondi playing a starring role on Wednesday for the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions.

It was a nice way to warm up for Sunday’s CAF Confederation Cup return leg fixture against Yanga SC in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania where Gor will look to take a step closer to sealing a quarter-finals slot.

Feeding off a defensive lapse, Omondi put his side into the lead just after the half-hour mark before the midfielder grabbed his brace minutes into the second half to double Gor’s advantage.

Paul Odhiambo then halved Posta’s deficit with a looping finish beyond goalkeeper Shaban Odhoji in the 64th minute.

Their faint hopes of pulling a comeback were dashed five minutes later when when Samwel Onyango scored to make it 3-1 in favour of Gor.

Gor will play Kariobangi Sharks in the last eight after the 2017 finalists defeated Modern Coast Rangers 3-1 in the other round of 16 clash.
