Gor Mahia will lock horns with NA Hussein Dey in the 2018/19 CAF Confederation Cup Group D match on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 15h00 CAT.

The game is set to take place at the Moi International Sports Centre in the Kenyan city of Nairobi.

Gor Mahia succumbed to a 2-1 defeat to Angolan side Petro de Luanda away on match-day two earlier this month.

The result left the Kenyan giants placed third on the group table - a point behind the leaders, Hussein Dey.

Nicholas Kipkirui, who netted once against Petro de Luanda, will be keen to inspire Gor Mahia to victory at home.

Meanwhile, Hussein Dey managed to hold Egyptian giants Zamalek to a 1-1 draw away on match-day two earlier this month.

The draw saw the Algerian side climb to the top of the group standings and they are only a point ahead of second-place Petro de Luanda.

Hussein Dey will look to Faouzi Yaya, who was on the score sheet against Zamalek.

The encounter between Gor Mahia and Hussein Dey will be officiated by referee Aboul Kanoso of Madagascar.
