Team news: Pierre replaces Owino as injury rules Gatusso out

Coach Frank Nutall has drafted cameroonian defender Simone Pierre in his starting line-up in a reorganization strategy to fill the void left by suspended centre back David Owino.

The change will see Kevin Oluoch drift inwards to partner Haron Shakava with Pierre taking plying the left fullback position.

However the surprising change sees midfielder Daniel Onyango who featured as a substitute against Tusker FC win a starting role replacing injured Collins “Gatusso” Okoth.

Eric Ochieng is fit to start having recovered from a knock that saw him substituted mid-way through the first half last Sunday and will partner Onyango and Kizito in midfield.

Once again Walusimbi will play in the attacking left wing supporting the front attacking pair of Sserenkuma and Otieno.

Starting XI: 1. Jerim Onyango -GK (cpt), 5. Musa Mohammed, 18. Harun Shakava, 27. Simeone Pierre, 4. Kevin Oluoch, 2. Godfrey Walusimbi, 3. Geoffrey Kizito, 17. Eric Ochieng, 10. Daniel Onyango, 9. Timothy Otieno, 8. Danni Sserunkuma.

Reserves: 16. David Juma -GK, 7. Simon Mburu, 21. Bruno Charles, 25. George Odhiambo, 20. Joseph Kariuki, 30. Patrick Onyango, 14. Kennedy Opiyo.

Head Coach: Frank Nuttall.

Deputy Coach: Bobby Ogolla.

Assistant Coach: Frank Ouna.
