‘Shitu’, Kuta return for Leopards clash

Salim Shitu Abdalla takes on AFC Leopards Isaac Kipyegon in a round 15 Premier League played at KAsarani on Sat 6 Mar 2021. Leopards won the game 1-0

Stopper Salim Shitu Abdala and forward Augustine Kuta are among four changes made as Nairobi City Stars shape up for a 33rd round FKF Premier League tie against AFC Leopards in Thika Stadium on Monday 6 June 2022 starting 3 pm.

Shitu returns after missing the last game against Gor Mahia as Kuta makes a re-entry to the squad after sitting out two games.

Other than Shitu and Kuta, in for Wycliffe Otieno and Nicholas Kipkirui respectively, the other two changes include the return of winger John Kamau and defensive-mid Charles Otieno.

Both Charles and Kamau return after missing the Gor Mahia, and are in for Michael Madoya and Davis Agesa.

From the squad that featured in the first leg in Nyayo Stadium in early January 2022, changes are five.

Other than Agesa, Madoya, and Kipkirui, others that won’t feature in the upcoming game include Oliver Maloba and keeper Stephen Njunge.

Kuta, midfielders Rowland Makati, Elvis Noor Ojiambo, forward Mohammed Bajaber, and keeper Elvis Ochoro have taken up their slots.
