Stopper Wycliffe Otieno who started then and exited the game with a dislocated ankle is out, and three other starters then; Bolton Omwenga, John Kamau, and Elvis Noor Ojiambo, are all out.

Substitutes then; Ebrima Sanneh and Erick Ombija, as well as unused substitutes Wesley Onguso and Azizi Okaka, besides Vincent Otieno, are all out.

Their places have been taken by new defenders Dennis Decha Wanjala and Lennox Ogutu and forwards Davis Agesa and Nicholas Kipkirui.
