Singida FC head coach Hemeddi Morocco has warned his charges to be on red-alert when they tackle Gor Mahia in the Super Cup semi final on Thursday.

Hemedi guided his charges to a 4-2 post match penalty victory over AFC Leopards after a goalless draw in regulation time on Tuesday at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru, to set a semis date with Gor.

And ahead of Thursday’s clash, Hemeddi has said that his boys will throw every arsenal in a bid to sail to the final.

He is however modest enough to admit that the Kenyan powerhouse are the overwhelming favourites for the tie.

“Whenever you play against Kenyan teams, you must be strong because they are very physical. I really respect Gor Mahia, they are among the best teams in East and Central Africa but despite that we will prepare well for the semi, we have realized our mistakes and we’re working on them. Probably we may defeat them,” he said.

For their part, Gor who began their defence of the gong with a 3-0 victory over Jeshi La Kujenga Uchumi (JKU) are eyeing nothing but the gong.

“We don’t fear Singida, we are the champions and for that we must beat them and qualify for the finals. Our aim is to play Everton (at Goodison Park) and that’s why we had to defeat JKU. We are not scared,” team assistant coach Zedekiah ‘Zico’ Otieno said.

Another semi final will see Kenyan side Kakamega Homeboyz entertainTanzania based Simba. Homeboyz launched their quest for title in style, beating Yanga SC 3-1 on June 3 while Simba SC were forced to go the full distance to see off a resilient Kariobangi Sharks side 3-2 on post-match penalty shootouts after their quarter-finals match ended in a barren stalemate.

The winners of tomorrow’s matches will meet in Sunday’s epic final, for a chance to play Everton at Goodson Park in the UK.
