Rio, Muloma earn starts in team to face Nzoia Sugar

Head coach Benjamin Nyangweso has picked his team for the clash against Nzoia Sugar at Afraha Stadium on Monday 6th May, making a few changes from the side that faced Bandari on Thursday 2 May.

Hassan Rio Mohamed returns to the starting team after a six match absence and he replaces George Omondi at the heart of defence, where he will partner Bonaventure Muchika.

The rest of the back line stays unchanged, with Brian Birgen and Omar Mbongi occupying the defensive flanks and skipper James Saruni providing the safe hands.

Injured

Ibrahim Shambi and Boniface Okinyi are injured and miss out completely. They join Daniel Waweru on the sidelines, and in their absence, Bernard Ongoma and Churchill  Muloma are handed starts in midfield.

Oscar Wamalwa is named on the bench with Ezekiel Okare starting as the main striker while lead scorer Enosh Ochieng will be operating from the flanks as usual.
