K’Ogalo will be keenly following the events from Cameroon with news now trickling in that their Caf Confederation Cup play-off opponents are yet to secure funds that would aid them to honor the fixture in Nairobi.
The visitors are facing serious financial challenges back at home - putting their planned trip to Nairobi in disarray after the Cameroonian government failed to release funds in time, according to Cameroonian publication Kick442.com .
This is not the first time that an opponent of the Cameroonian team has been given a bye to the next round. Earlier this season, Asante Kotoko of Ghana were handed a walk-over after the country failed to produce a team for the tourney.
The aggregate winner between Gor Mahia and New Star will advance to the group stages.
