Wycliffe Kasaya is set to make his debut for Sofapaka on Wednesday when the former champions take on Chemelil Sugar.

Kasaya joined Sofapaka from Mathare United in the June transfer window and the custodian is expected to stand between the posts, barely a week after his arrival at the new club.

Another signing for the 2009 champions is Pistone Mutamba, who was snapped up from Wazito, though the lanky striker is currently away on International duty with Harambee Stars in India.

Kasaya has been guaranteed a starting place in the absence of first choice custodian Mathew Kigonya.

Kigonya and compatriot Umaru Kasumba will miss the midweek clash after the duo travelled to Uganda to attend to personal commitments.

In the absence of Kasumba, coach John Baraza is likely to start with Ezekiel Okare, who extended his stay at the club for a further three years until 2021.

Okare will partner with Kepha Aswani and Stephen Waruru upfront

The last time the two sides met, the game ended in a 1-1 draw at Chemelil Complex.

A win for Sofapaka today would see the leap to the second spot on the log and close the gap on leaders Gor Mahia.
