Gor Mahia striker Dennis Oliech is set to miss the CAF Confederations Cup match against New Star from Cameroon, on Sunday.

The former Harambee Stars captain made his debut for the Kenyan champions in a 1-1 draw against Mathare United yesterday, after coming on as a second half substitute.

Having joined K’Ogallo this year, Oliech is not eligible to participate in Sunday’s continental match as he is yet to be registered with CAF.

Gor Mahia will be seeking to make it to the group stages of the competition for the second season in a row after losing to Nigerian side Lobi Stars in the Caf Champions League.
