David Okello is among the five changes made by Mathare United as the ‘Slum Boys’ prepare to take on Bandari to be played at the Mbaraki Grounds on Saturday.

Okello, who signed for Mathare from Tusker, has been handed his debut between the sticks for Mathare.

The experienced custodian will be shielded by a back four that has a new inclusion in Captain George Owino, playing alongside Samuel Olwande at the heart of defence while Martin Ongori and Mike Simiyu keep their places on the right and left respectively.

The pair of Francis Omondi and Roy Okal also makes a return to the starting squad.

The duo will pull the strings from the midfield with Roy Okal providing defensive cover in what is his third consecutive start this season.
