The Wednesday match came in the backdrop of a 1-0 loss to Kariobangi Sharks in the KPL Super Cup on Sunday, December 2.
Kenya Premier League side, Kariobangi Sharks on Sunday afternoon, December 2 defeated champions Gor Mahia 1-0 at Kasarani stadium to lift the KPL Super Cup.
Earlier, Gor Mahia’s assistant coach Zedekiah Zico Otieno was sent to the stands after he protested strongly the decision to award their hosts a penalty kick in the dying minutes of second half.
Prior to kick off, Gor made three changes from the squad which started in Nairobi with Oluoch replacing Peter Odhiambo between the posts while Samuel Onyango and Francis Mustafa were deployed in places of injured Kenneth Muguna and Jacques Tuyisenge.
However, Nyasa found themselves chasing the game when Miracle Gabeya’s kick was saved and Gor responded with Humphrey Mieno, Boniface Omondi and skipper Harun Shakava converting.

According to Rachier, the four are expected in the country for a series of interviews before settling on a replacement for Briton Dylan Kerr who resigned mid last month to take up South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) outfit Black Leopards job.
