Amavubi skipper Jacques Tuyisenge was on target as Kenyan champions Gor Mahia beat Algeria’s Algeria’s NA Hussein Dey 2-0 in a Group D Match of the CAF Confederations Cup on Sunday at Moi International Sports stadium in Nairobi.
Gor Mahia left it very late to pick all three points in a match they dominated from kick off, with both goals coming in the last eight minutes.
Francis Kahata struck first in the 82nd minute from a rebound, before Rwandan import Jacques Tuyisenge delivered the sucker punch right from the restart with a thumping shot that ended the match as a contest.
In between the two goals a red card was dished out to Chems Harrag for his petulant protests to the match referee.
For the most part it was a largely uneventful match with the home side dominating the possession stakes, but failing to make their pressure pay with poor decision making and horrible shooting in the final third.
Hussein Dey, on the other hand, offered very little in the way of attack and were fortunate to get to the half time break all-square.
The win, a second one for K’Ogalo in the campaign, hoists the Kenyan champions to top of Group D with six points from three outings.
The Algerian, who will host Gor Mahia in the next fixture on March 3, provisionally drops to second spot with 4 points from three matches.
