Brian Birgen will be back for the clash against Kariobangi Sharks on Wednesday 22 May

After missing the last three matches with injury, right back Brian Birgen is back, and will be among the starters when head coach Benjamin Nyangweso sends out his charges to face Kariobangi Sharks in the Round 32 clash at Afraha Stadium on Wednesday 22nd May.

Birgen suffered a deep cut in the face in the win over Nzoia Sugar and consequently missed matches against Posta Rangers, Zoo FC and Chemelil Sugar. He starts in place of Boniface Andayi, who featured on the right side of defence against Chemelil.

Elvis Nandwa is also back in the team after missing the trip to Awasi. He replaces Enosh Ochieng, who drops to the bench and the other change sees Oscar Wamalwa start upfront, in place of Ezekiel Okare who is named on the bench.
