NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 11 – Gor Mahia will have all to play for in the return leg of their CAF Champions League preliminary round tie in Nairobi against Aigle Noir in two weeks’ time after holding the Burundian side to a 0-0 in the first leg played in Bujumbura on Sunday evening.

In new boss Steven Polack’s first game in charge, Gor ensured they return to Nairobi even but will be disappointed they did not score a goal away from home.

In his first game in charge, Polack relied heavily on the advice from his new assistant Patrick Odhiambo to pick out a team especially having travelled with a thin squad with some of the new players yet to be registered.

Wellington Ochieng started on the right side of defense with Philemon Otieno injured while new signing David Mapigano started in goal with Boniface Oluoch out. Two other new signings, Tobias Otieno and Dickson Ambundo also started the match.

K’Ogalo will be keen to avoid conceding in the return leg as any scoring draw will see the Burundian side progress.
