Gor Mahia FC got themselves in the right mood for Sunday’s crunch CAF Confederation Cup against Petro Atletico when they downed Kakamega Homeboyz 2-1 at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

Gor fell 1-0 behind in the 51st minute after Luke Namanda beat goalkeeper Frederick Odhiambo but substitute Francis Mustafa and Boniface Omondi hit back in a quickfire two minutes to overturn the tie.

The comeback victory moved Gor into second on the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) standings, level on 32 points with Bandari FC who have an inferior goal difference.

Leaders Sofapaka FC have played three more matches than the champions who will again miss out on domestic action as they take on Angolans Petro Atletico in a clash that will determine whether they progress into the group stages.

Gor turn guns on their Confederation Cup mission where an intensely competitive Pool D has left facing a must-win situation in order to move beyond the group stages of the second-tier continental clubs competition.

Gor sit bottom of the group with six points ahead of the final round while Petro are on seven points, level with Hussein Dey who tackle Zamalek in the other match.
