Striker Davis Agesa and keeper Levis Opiyo are back in Nairobi City Stars lineup for the upcoming round 28 Betika Super League (BSL) clash with Nairobi Stima clash at Camp Toyoyo on Saturday 14 March 2020.
Agesa plugs in to a vacuum left by another striker Ezekiel Odera who misses out for the same reasons that saw him out in the last game; two yellow cards from the previous game.
Opiyo too returns from suspension to send debutant against AP Bomet Jacob Osano back to bench which in effect sees Ronny Kagunzi fall off the match day 18 squad.
Other than Osano, there will be two other changes on the bench. Gambian striker Ebrima Sanneh and defensive mid Eric Ochieng make an entry in place of Jimmy Bageya and Charles Otieno Oduro.
Bageya suffered a ligament tear in the AP Bomet game while Charles is yet to fully recover from a similar tear from previous games.
Bageya and Otieno join recovering striker Vincent Otieno on the sidelines. Oliver Maloba who recently returned to the club is not yet fully fit.
