The CAF disciplinary committee has taken a decision to suspend the captain of Kenyan side, Gor Mahia,Haron Shakava,26 and his 25 year old team-mate,Joash Achieng Onyango.The suspension of this key defensive men makes the job of Coach, Hassan Oktay more difficult given New Stars away form in the competition this season.
CAF took a decision to immediately suspend the two Kenyan players because of an incident on the pitch when Gor Mahia played against Lobi Stars in Enugu.This decision prevents the players from taking part in Sunday’s game against New Stars while waiting for their case to be discussed during the next CAF disciplinary committee meeting scheduled for January 13th in Cairo.
These two main men in the defensive part of the Gor Mahia team will only watch from the stands when Ngongang Figo Junior and his mates face their team.
New Stars will be without midfielder,Aristide Medjo who is suspended after he was red carded against Al Ahly Tripoli.
New Stars arrived Nairobi on Friday night,they will hold a training session on Saturday before their first ever game on Sunday.
At the end of this tie,one of these clubs will get a ticket to the group Stage of the CAF Confederation cup.
