Gor Mahia narrowly lost 1-0 away to NA Hussein Dey in a Caf Confederation Cup return match marred by suspect refereeing in Algeria.
The hosts went ahead from a goal mouth melee in the 9th minute with Abderrahmane Yousfi pocking home a lose clearance inside the box.
K’Ogalo nonetheless did not give up and kept pushing for the leveler but they were up against many forces including poor officiating and the hosts play acting antics.
The Malian FIFA ref, Boubou Traore, capped a horrible show in the 82nd minute when he disallowed a clean goal scored by defender Shafik Batambuze.
The loss saw Gor Mahia drop to second in Group D standings, one point behind leaders NA Hussein Dey, who are now on seven points.
K’Ogalo heads to Egypt to face Zamalek SC on Sunday before they return home for their final group encounter against Petro Atletico of Angola.
