Because he failed the fitness test, Philemon Otieno was forced to watch his teammates compete in the CAF Confederation Cup Playoffs against Otôho. Philemon was one of three Gor Mahia players, along with Jules Ulimwengu, Sydney Ochieng, and John Ochieng, who were unable to play due to COVID-19 issues and injury but were included in the 16-man traveling squad.
Despite the fact that the loss was a major setback in Gor's quest to reach the CAF Confederation Cup group stages, Gor lost 1-0 due to a lack of options from the bench.
Looking forward to the Otôho 2nd leg clash at Nyayo this Sunday, Philemon Otieno believes he will be fit to help his team now that he has returned to training.
"There is a chance that I will be cleared to play. I began training on Tuesday and will continue to push harder. If the doctor says I am fit to rumble again, I will be glad to help the team win the game, "he told Mozzart Sports.
In terms of their opponents, Otieno assured Gor fans that. "Otoho are beatable, but it is important to caution the boys that there are no small teams at this stage. The available players are focused and eager to qualify for the next round because they understand the rewards and exposure that they stand to get."
Will Gor Mahia be able to silence Otoho on Sunday? Please leave your thoughts in the section below.
