Hull City in town for showdown with Gor Mahia

Hull City’s top scorer Jarrod Bowen has trained his sights on leading his team to victory over Gor Mahia when the two teams clash in a high profile friendly match in Nairobi on Sunday.

The 22-year-old spoke to SportPesa News on Friday on arrival in Nairobi.

“It’s great to be here and I’m really looking forward to the game on Sunda., I’m grateful for the season and I hope that I can carry on that form against Gor Mahia and score a goal,” said Bowen.

The excited but visibly tired English team was welcomed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport with song and dance after an eight-hour flight from Amsterdam.

First team coach Tony Pennock, Partnerships Executive Andrew Stead and Medical officer Rob Price together with officials from the Ministry of Sports and SportPesa staff were at the airport to welcome the English Championship side.

“I’ve come to welcome the Hull City team and to tell that that mighty Gor Mahia will not accept anything less than a win on Sunday,” Gor Mahia’s self proclaimed number one fan Jaro Soja said.

Coach Nigel Adkins has picked a strong quad which includes Bowen, veterans forward Frazier Campbell, John Toral and David Marshall.

The English side is expected to hold a training session at the match venue on Saturday in readiness for the clash against the Kenyan giants.
