Minimal changes against Ulinzi Stars

Salim 'Shitu' Abdalla looks on in Nairobi City Stars Premier League opener against Nzoia Sugar FC on Sun 29 Nov 2020. City Stars won 2-0. Shitu was named MVP for Simba wa Nairobi

Two defenders Salim Shitu Abdalla and Edwin Buliba have been ruled out of the upcoming clash against Ulinzi Stars to be held at Utalii Grounds on Saturday 16 January 2021 starting 3pm.

Shitu, who clocked all minutes in the seven opening games of the season, was ruled out due to an ankle injury picked from the last tie against Posta Rangers at Kasarani last Friday.

Buliba, a defensive cover, picked a thigh strain in the course of the week forcing him out of the upcoming duel to miss out on the squad for the first time this season.

As Shitu and Buliba stay out, defensive minded John Bombay Kamau and Charles Chale Otieno who were onboarded for the opening game of the year against Wazito, have been drafted back to the squad.

Both Kamau and Chale fell off the squad that faced Rangers; Chale due to a returning wrist injury.

Save for the those changes, the rest of the squad remains the same.
