Gor Mahia head coach Hassan Oktay is confident that his men will complete the job when they face Cameroonian side New Star de Douala on Sunday.
The Kenyan giants earned a slim 2-1 advantage over New Star in the first leg of the 2018/19 CAF Confederation Cup play-off round at the Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi last weekend.
Jacques Tuyisenge struck the winner three minutes from time as Gor head into the return tie needing just to avoid defeat.
Oktay stated that he will work to firm up his defense as he looks to keep a clean sheet in West Africa.
“I believe we did well and I am very optimistic that we will win the second leg," Oktay said.
"We will go there to dominate and win the game. It is a bit disappointing that we conceded an away goal.
"But if we can go there and score one or two as well, it will be good for us."
The winner on aggregate between New Star and Gor Mahia will reach the group stage of the continental tournament.
