Kenyan international George Wise Owino will be making his return to the Sofapaka starting team for the Western Stima clash on Friday 21 September after serving a one match ban following the red card given to him in the Tusker FC draw.
Owino’s return is coupled with Collins Okoth’s absence in one of the changes after the Ulinzi Stars loss and Owino could slot into the midfield for the 1600hrs kickoff at the Nairobi City Stadium.
The other change in the starting team is the exclusion of Danson Kago who is left out altogether and his place is taken up by Bob Mugalia.
On the bench
Robert Binja, Hashim Mukhwana and Thomas Wanyama also make comebacks to the team but will start from the bench.
Starting XI: Duncan Ochieng (GK), James Situma (cpt), Edgar Ochieng, Eugene Asike, Anthony Kimani, George Owino, Osborne Monday, Heritier Luvualu, Bob Mugalia, Humphrey Mieno, John Baraza.
Substitutes: David Okello (GK),Robert Binja, Felly Mulumba, Hashim Mukhwana, Demonde Selenga, Joseph Nyaga, Thomas Wanyama.
