An advance team of Hull City jetted in this morning ahead of their Sunday match against Gor mahia
For yet another time, Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia will have a chance to write their name in books of history when they host English Championship side Hull City in a SportPesa-sponsored friendly match on May 13.
Gor tackled a Wayne Rooney-led Everton in July last year in Tanzania where they fell 2-1 and they will be seeking their first ever victory over an English side.
The two clubs enjoy shirt sponsorship from the betting firm. Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr, said: “It is a good match for us as a club and we welcome Hull to Kenya. We played Everton last year and it was a good experience us and we are hoping to get the best this time.”
“It shows that we are growing to international standards and I am happy the management secured such a friendly. The match is good for our side as we seek to defend our KPL title and make progress in the Caf Confederations Cup,” added Kerr.
“SuperSport is a big club. They reached last year’s final and we are aware of the threat they pose. This is a team I have known for a while,” said Kerr.
“I was playing and coaching in South Africa and we ought to take the match as a final. We have to take our chances especially at home before heading out for the return leg.”
