Ezekiel Okare has been named on the bench as Sofapaka FC aim at bouncing back from a 2-1 defeat against Ulinzi Stars last Wednesday.
The midfielder, who has scored eight goals this season, will warm the bench alongside former AFC Leopards captain Bernard Mang'oli.
Meshack Karani has been given an opportunity to impress with Jonathan Mugabi also getting a run. Captain Hillary Echesa will be hoping to inspire his side to victory considering his team has slim hopes of winning the title this season.
