Seasoned striker Ezekiel Odera and teenager Vincent Otieno Okoth aka Jamaica will both start for Nairobi City Stars as they take on Bidco United in a fourth round premier league game at Utalii grounds on Thursday 17 December 2020.

The two started off on the bench in the last encounter against KCB but have since earned elevation in place of the unavailable Davis Agesa and Oliver Maloba who drops to the bench.

Save for the two changes, the rest of the lot remains as is.

For a second straight game Sven Yidah will start ahead of teenager Elvis Noor Ojiambo as Steve Njunge claims his place between the posts for a fourth straight game.

The backline of Herit Mungai Atariza, Kenedy Onyango, Salim Abdalla and Azizi Okaka is unchanged as Peter Opiyo provides cover.

Teenager Timothy Noor Ouma will, for a second straight game, start and will play in midfield alongside skipper Anthony Muki Kimani.

The bench is a familiar one with overall skipper Calvin Masawa, utility back Edwin Buliba, roving wingers Rodgers Okumu and Jimmy Bageya handing company to Ojiambo and Maloba, as well as teenage keeper Elvis Ochoro.

The new arrival on the bench is big Wycliffe Otieno who missed the last two games due to injury.
