Top striker Enosh Ochieng will not be part of the 18 – man squad for the Saturday 2nd November clash against AFC Leopards at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos. The striker had a groin injury ahead of the game and head coach Benjamin Nyangweso has opted to take precaution by leaving him out.
Omar Boraafya returns to the team in his place but starts from the bench while Oscar Wamalwa is handed a starting berth and together with Ezekiel Okare, the two will lead the attack as Kelvin Thairu returns to the bench after two straight starts previously.
Timothy Odhiambo, who has kept five clean sheets in the seven games played, earns another start and he will be shielded by the quartet of Bonaventure Muchika, Boniface Andayi, Brian Birgen and Harun Mwale.
Boniface Okinyi remain out with a knee injury, as does Omar Mbongi, while Ibrahim Shambi who has resumed training misses as well.
