Mbongi the only new face as team to face Leopards is named

One change has been made in the team to face AFC Leopards in the Sunday 7th April game at Afraha Stadium. Omar Mbongi returns, and Harun Mwale is benched

Head coach Benjamin Nyangweso has named the team that will be on duty against AFC Leopards in the Sunday 7th April Kenyan Premier League (KPL) clash at the Afraha Stadium, making just one change.

Omar Mbongi is back after serving a one – match suspension when the team played Kakamega Homeboyz. He earns a starting berth and Benja will want to use his freshness in the left back position.

He replaces Harun Mwale, who slotted in against Kakamega Homeboyz. Mwale is named on the bench, where he takes up Hamisi Abdalla’s place.

Saruni in goal

James Saruni keeps his place in goal with Timothy Odhiambo the understudy and once again Bonaventure Muchika and Hassan Mohamed get to partner in central defence as Brian Birgen mans the right side of defence.

A richly talented list of substitutes has utility man George Omondi, Kenya U23 international Ibrahim Shambi, Ezekiel Okare among others.

Starting XI: James Saruni (GK), Brian Birgen, Hassan Mohamed, Bonaventure Muchika, Omar Mbongi, Boniface Onyango, John Kago, Elvis Nandwa, Daniel Waweru, John Njuguna, Enosh Ochieng.

Subs: Timothy Odhiambo (GK), Ibrahim Shambi, Harun Mwale, George Omondi, Ezekiel Okare, Bernard Ongoma, Oscar Wamalwa.
