Dylan Kerr Gor Mahia's head coach will be 'under pressure' for the first time in his managerial career if he fails to secure a group stage spot in the CAF Confederations Cup.

Gor Mahia travel to South Africa with a 1-0 lead against a tough Supersport United with much to play for in the return leg. The match is slated to be played on Wednesday 18th April 2018 in Pretoria.

Kerr, speaking to the press promised

 he would not park the bus against Supersport United and would instead deploy an offensive squad. 

Having comprehensively swept aside Wazito FC in the Premier League to extend their unbeaten run to 7 wins with 1 draw with two games at hand. Gor Mahia sit second with just a point below league leaders Mathare United, who have played two more matches. 

On the other hand, Last season CAF Confederations Cup runners-up Supersport United are winless in five games in the ABSA Premiership. 

Gor Mahia have no injury concerns, With their match against Kakamega Homeboyz postponed to give the players more rest, Gor needs to rotate and press high if they are to win anything in the second leg. 

It will be fascinating to see how Dylan Kerr would put up his team against a strong Supersport United.
