Three changes against Gor Mahia

The return of skipper Calvin Masawa is one of three major changes made to the Simba wa Nairobi squad set to face champions Gor Mahia on Saturday 17 February 2024 in Kenyatta Stadium, Machakos starting from 4 p.m.

Masawa is back for the matchday 22 tie after serving a two-match suspension following a straight red card in a recent game against AFC Leopards in Bukhungu, Kakamega.

Masawa will be joined in the squad by newcomers Byron Owino and defensive midfielder Shem Odinga who both joined the club in the ended mid-window from Kibera Black Stars and Kibera Angels, respectively.

Falling off the squad that saw off Bandari 1-0 in Mombasa in the immediate past league game are goalkeeper Edwin Mukolwe and midfielder Elvis Noor due to caution suspensions, as well as flyer Pius Omachi who takes a rest.

Abuyeka Kubasu and Gilbert Abala who made the Bandari trip retain their places in the team, as well as recent signing Rogers Obusu who makes the cut for a third straight match.
