Three changes have been made to the City Stars team that saw off Ulinzi Stars 1-0 on Easter Monday ahead of the upcoming FKF Premier League tie against Sofapaka on Saturday 23 April 2022 starting 3 pm in Ruaraka.

Attacking midfielder Timothy Noor Ouma aka Babu returns after sitting out the last game due to yellow card suspension as well as offensive midfielder Augustine Kuta who took a rest from the Easter match.

Making the squad for the first time this season is stopper Wycliffe Wiked Otieno who has been out of league action since mid-August 2021 due to a dislocated ankle suffered at the same venue while playing Mathare United.

Otieno has since recuperated fully and has finally found a chance to book his first topflight game in the current campaign.

Otieno takes up the place of Salim Shitu Abdallah who was injured in the last game and failed to go past the first half, as Babu and Kuta come on for unavailable John Kamau and Charles Otieno.
