However, they will miss the services of captain James Situma who is out injured. In Sofapaka’s starting team against Ulinzi, coach David Ouma has made three changes to the team that started against Thika United.
Antony Kimani has been pulled to right back, Elly Asieche starting on the offensive right and George Owino starting in defense.
Bob Mugalia who has not been a consistent figure in the Sofapaka line up, will get a nod to start especially after being called up to the national team, Harambee Stars. He will partner John Baraza in attack.
Collins Kisuya will miss a chance of facing his former employers and will not be part of the team. Abdallah Juma will start in his place.
Coach David Ouma revealed to Goal.Com he anticipates a tough contest against the soldiers at their backyard.
“It will be a tough match against tough opponents but we are well prepared for them. It will be great playing against my former boss at Sofapaka Salim Ali. I am very sure it will be an interesting match."
