Head coach Dunstan Nyaudo has not tinkered a lot with the squad ahead of the match against Thika United at home on Sunday 15th April, only bringing in midfielder Michael Otieno in place of Boniface Onyango.

Onyango is out on compassionate leave, having been released on Wednesday and as a result misses this match.

John Kago, who really impressed as a second half substitute in the game against Bandari the last time out, is retained in the 18 – man team for the second straight match and the coach will still have regulars Churchill Muloma, Oliver Ruto, Brian Birgen and George Omondi in the squad.

Skipper James Saruni keeps his place in the squad as well as Bernard Ongoma who also had a good game against Bandari.

Lead scorer Masita Masuta who rose from the bench to score in the draw with Bandari will be in line to add to his tally of four goals so far as he has also been included in the 18 – man squad.

Squad: James Saruni (C), Timothy Odhiambo, Brian Birgen, Cylus Shitote, Benson Sande, Oliver Ruto, George Omondi, John Kago, Enosh Ochieng, Daniel Waweru, Ibrahim Shambi, Hassan Mohamed, Churchill Muloma, Bernard Ongoma, Cliff Kasuti, Michael Otieno, Elvis Nandwa, Masita Masuta.
