There are two changes to the Nairobi City Stars squad, from the one that faced Wazito in mid-week, for the next game against Bandari at Mbaraki on Sunday 4 July 2021 starting 3  pm.

On loan right-back, Kevin Chumsy Okumu, who was dropped at the last hour on Wednesday on a technicality to avoid facing his parent club Wazito, returns to the squad.

Against Wazito he was replaced by overall team captain Calvin Masawa.

Chumsy will take up the place of Gambian striker Ebrima Sanneh who dropped out due to an ankle injury picked from the Wednesday game.

Other than Chumsy, the other addition to the squad is defensive mid Charles Chale Otieno who takes up the place of regular center back Salim Shitu Abdalla.

Shitu is out due to a slight knock suffered against Wazito.

From the squad that faced Bandari in December 2020 during the first leg at Kasarani, there is a total of six changes.

Jimmy Bageya who provided an assist for the first goal, in the game City Stars won 2-0, is no longer at the club.

Winger Azizi Okaka, striker Vincent Otieno Okoth, attacking mid Timothy Ouma, reserve keeper Elvis Ochoro and the injured Shitu are the other players missing out on the reverse game.

The new faces include reserve keeper Jacob Osano, fullbacks Bolton Omwenga and Chumsy, strikers Ezekiel Odera, Erick Ombija, and Nicholas Kipkirui.
