According to the competition’s rules, one yellow card is scrapped ahead of the quarters, while players who had been suspended twice during the group stage miss two matches.

Good news for K’Ogalo is that their goalkeeper Frederick Onyango who picked his second yellow card in their final group match against Petro Atletico will be available for selection.

The Confederation of African Football (Caf) has also banned Gor Mahia coach Hassan Oktay for continuous protesting against the referees in their 1-0 win over Angolan giants Petro Atletico during their final Confederation Cup group “D” match on March 17 at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani.

The Turkish-Cypriot was sent off in the 54th minute by centre referee, Moroccan Redouane Jiyad.

“The coach is automatically suspended for the next match (against RS Berkane)…he is banned from sitting on the technical bench and accessing the dressing rooms,” the statement read in part.
