Gor Mahia coach cheerful ahead of Hull City friendly
Gor Mahia FC head coach Dylan Kerr is an optimistic man ahead of the high profile friendly against Hull City set to be played on Sunday at the 60,000-seater Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi.
Most pundits have often stated that the form guide favors their opponents, who are an English Championship side, ahead of the clash.
Kerr believes in his team’s abilities promising they will stage a good show of football and there is nothing to fear about the Tigers.

“I have told my players to give their all, they have to market themselves and Kenya across the continent and beyond since this match will be beamed all over the world.”
On his side, Hull City manager Nigel Adkins has indicated that his team, which arrived in the country on Friday night, is expecting a tough test from the Kenyan side.
“It will be a tough game for us. We have arrived here at the end of our season, a lot of players are on international duty and others have gone back to their clubs and others are out of contracts.
“We know it will be a challenging game and we are looking forward to it. Dylan Kerr is a good manager and he will have his players up for it,” Adkin remarked.
Gor Mahia’s technical bench will be using the high profile friendly match to prepare the team for the CAF Confederation Cup tie against USM Algiers scheduled for Wednesday at the same venue.
