Gor Mahia were scheduled to to finally fly out of Nairobi for Algeria Friday night for their Caf Champions League first round, first leg match against USM Alger.

The match will be played at the Stade Mustapha Tchaker in Blida from 10.45pm Kenyan time on Sunday.

K’Ogalo were initially scheduled to fly out on Wednesday evening but could not secure funds for air tickets and other expenses.

The Ministry of Sports, Culture and the Arts provided 18 tickets Friday afternoon. The Kenyan champions are scheduled to arrive in Blida barely 24 hours to the match.

Gor coach Steven Polack is however confident the team will do well.

“We are going to Algeria and that is what matters. Nothing is ever perfect and at times we have no control over certain circumstances. We arrive in good time for the players to rest and finalise preparations and I am optimistic we will do well,” the British coach said.

“We are not just representing the club but the fans and Kenya in general and we therefore have to do our best.”
