Former Algerian Ligue Professionnelle 1 champions NA Hussein Dey are a tricky side.

This is according to Gor Mahia head coach, Hassan Oktay, whose side is set to face Hussein Dey in the CAF Confederation Cup Group D match on Sunday.

Oktay expects a tough duel, but having come good against North African opposition recently, including last year’s CAF Champions League winners Esperance.

However, the Turkish tactician is confident his side can complete the job at home in Kenya.

“I watched both their games against Petro and Zamalek and I expect a very tough game," Oktay said.

"They are good on the ball and have swift movement. They are a tricky side to face but we will plan a very good tactical approach for them and playing at home we should win.

“We have a lot of confidence from how we played against Zamalek and if we can improve on that performance, we will be okay.”

Kenyan giants Gor Mahia will host Hussein Dey at the Moi International Sports Centre in Nairobi.
