Ombacho, Buliba named for Police tie

Julius Ombacho

Goalkeeper Julius Ombacho is in line for his Kenyan Premier League debut after being named to the 20-man squad to face Kenya Police in match day six on Saturday 7 October 2023 in Police Sacco starting at 3 p.m.

Ombacho, the immediate former Luanda Villa goal-tender, is one of two changes named from the previous squad that saw off Sofapaka 2-1 last weekend after taking up the place of Elvis Ochoro.

Other than Ombacho, the other change is that of defender Edwin Buliba who takes up the place of injured Rowland Makati.

Buliba featured in the first game of the season but went off due to an injury. Makati, whom he replaces, left the Sofapaka game last weekend after a quarter of an hour due to a knock.
