Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr insists they control their future ahead of the second leg of their CAF Confederation Cup match against SuperSport United on Wednesday night.
The Kenyan side beat SuperSport 1-0 after bagging the win at home last week and will look to consolidate that result in order to reach the group stages of the CAF competition.
Kerr believes that they face a mountainous task, but was quick to add that they stand a good chance to progress.
“The tie is far from over and I think the advantage is still with them (SuperSport). I have told the players that the destiny is in their hands,” he told CAF website.
“They have 90 minutes to make themselves heroes. They have to be confident and believe that everything we have done in training will bear fruit.
The English manager expects a tough fight against a side that was solid at home in their run-up to the final of the same tournament last year.
“We proved in the first leg that we can match them man-to-man and that has given us a lot of confidence that we can do it,” added the coach.
“We will have to give our best and I have told the players not to come out of the pitch with regrets. I expect them to come all out and we are ready for whatever they throw at us.”
The encounter will be staged at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday at 19:00.
