Forward Mohammed Bajaber and midfielder Abuyeka Kubasu have been included in Nairobi City Stars 20-man squad for the upcoming match day 2 FKF Premier League tie against Bidco United in Kasarani Annex on Sunday 3 Sept 2023 starting at 3 p.m.
Bajaber takes up the place of defender Edwin Buliba who suffered a knock in training on Friday while Abuyeka – the only City Stars player not fielded last season – replaces flyer Gilbert Abala.
On Wednesday, Bajaber grabbed a brace and came off with an assist leading Simba wa Nairobi to a 4-0 win over Kaayole South Ward FC during a friendly match.
Save for the two changes, all the other 18 players who were part of the season opener against Muhoroni Youth, which ended 0-0, maintained their places in the squad.
