Hassan Oktay fielded a fringe side with the main focus on a must-win Sunday’s Caf Confederation Cup match against Angolan Petro Atletico at the Kasarani Stadium. Oktay was forced to break some rules when he named only four players on the bench with up to seven new faces in the starting line-up, but the fresh legs still did the jobs nonetheless after the Kenyan Premier League refused to postpone the fixtures to allow Gor Mahia adequately prepare for the weekend Caf match.
