Kenyan Premier League (KPL) table toppers AFC Leopards have named the squad for their Sunday 26 August league match against KCB at the Nyayo National Stadium, leaving out key striker Allan Wanga and defender Eric Masika.
The duo’s absence will, however, be softened by the return of Paul Were from injury and the Kenyan international is named among the starters as well as Victor Ochieng.
Masika’s absence means captain Martin Imbalambala will fit in back to the defence alongside Rwandan international Jonas Nahimana while Floribert Tambwe and Bernard Mangoli will do the defensive work in the midfield.
Starting XI: Patrick Matasi (GK), Edwin Wafula, Idrissa Rajab, Jonas Nahimana, Floribert Ndayisaba, Bernard Mang’oli, Martin Imbalambala (Cpt), Charles Okwemba, Victor Ochieng, Paul Were, Mike Barasa
Subs: Barnabas Tiema (GK), Abbas Kiwalabye, Amon Muchiri, Oscar Kadenge, Laurent Tumba, Edward Seda, Jimmy Bagaye.
