Alphonce Ndonye has recovered in time and will be available for Mathare United when they take on Tusker on Sunday.
Ndonye is back in training after shaking off a knee injury and will be available for selection when Francis Kimanzi meets his former employers.
Ahmed Ahmad is also closing in on a return to action for the ‘Slum Boys’, whose 10-match undefeated run came to a halt last Wednesday when they lost 3-0 to Kariobangi Sharks at Kasarani.
Daniel Mwaura, Samuel Olwande and goalkeeper Wycliffe Kasaya are all sidelined owing to various injuries.
Mathare United are a place above relegation zone with 25 points while league defending champion Tusker are sitting eighth with 33 points.
