Nzoia Sugar FC and Kariobangi Sharks have both named their match day squads for the only BetKing Premier League fixture on Saturday 5th December, set to be played from 3pm at the Sudi Stadium in Bungoma.
The hosts, reeling from a 2-0 loss to Nairobi City Stars in the opening fixture, have made minimal changes and Mustapha Oduor maintains his place in goal. He will be guarded by Moses Mwale, Wanjala Dennis, Esekon Emmanuel and lanky center-half Gabriel Wandera.
Youngster Erick Otieno starts upfront and Daniel Musamali, freshly roped in from St Anthony’s Boys Kitale, earns his debut.
Sharks head to Sudi very confident after the massive win over Wazito on Match Day 1, and Bwire Brian will be once again trusted between the sticks. He has a backline comprising John Kuol, Geoffrey Shiveka, Patillah Omotto and Boniface Onyango, who slots in for injured Olwande Samuel.
Kapaito Erick, two-goal hero from match day one, starts upfront.
