Mfaume Ali (centre referee), Ferdinand Chacha(1st  assistant), John Longino(second assistant),Martin Elifhas(reserve referee) and Tarig Atta (match commissioner, Sudan) are expected to jet in Thursday evening ahead of the Saturday assignment.

The two sides go head to head at the Nyayo National Stadium from 4pm.

Before facing off in the return leg in a fortnight where the winner of the two-leg tie will be determined.

At the same time, the visitors are expected to land at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport at 8.25 pm, Thursday with a delegation of 30 aboard a Kenya Airways airline from Antananarivo.

The visitors have booked themselves at the Summer Del hotel in Nairobi west and are later scheduled to have a feel of the Nyayo National Stadium pitch on Friday at 4pm.

Gor will be aiming to get a healthy lead ahead of the return leg in Antananarivo.

Last term, K’Ogalo bundled them out on away goal rule after registering a 3-3 aggregate score and the aim would be to replicate the feat.

Dead ball specialist Ali ‘Teargas’ Abondo scored from the spot, the only goal in the first leg and was also on target in the corresponding fixture together with George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo to fire Gor to round one of the competitions despite losing 3-2 away.

The Kenyan champions have had a busy pre-season playing high profile friendless but have of late slowed down their activity with team work outs at the Camp Toyoyo grounds ahead of the high stakes duel.

Meanwhile, the main stand tickets will retail Sh 600 and Sh 300 for terraces.
