  • Peter Odhiambo

    Odhiambo is expected to start in goal since regular starter Boniface Oluoch will be rested for the Caf Confederation Cup match on February 13 in Angola. It will be a good chance for the youngster to show he is fully fit to dethrone the veteran custodian from the post. 

  • Harun Shakava ofd Gor Mahia v David Juma of Tusker.

    The captain will also return to marshal the defense. He has never lost a match to Ingwe and he will not want that to happen on Saturday. He is a leader on and off the pitch; nothing puts a smile on him like getting a win against Ingwe.

  • Ernest Wendo of Gor Mahia v Nyasa Big Bullets.

    After the ban, Wendo is back and stronger, ready to guide his team to victory. Just like his opposite number Majid, Wendo has to ensure AFC Leopards do not dominate in midfield. He has to break the attacks from midfield and provide cover for the back four.

  • Jacques Tuyisenge of Gor Mahia v Zamalek.

    Tuyisenge has been in a fine form for the champions this season and will want to extend his run. The Rwandan striker is fast and capable of scoring from any angle. AFC Leopards defenders have to ensure they do not give him room to get close to goal.

  • Gibert Osonga of Posta Rangers v Dennis Oliech of Gor Mahia.

    Dennis Oliech

    It is going to be his first derby and as usual, many will expect him to rise for the occasion. He is strong and has killer instincts that enables him to be in a good position to score. It will be a theme of joy for the Green Army if he gets a goal against the rival.

  • Shafik Batambuze Nicholas Kipkirui and Nicholas Kipkirui of Gor Mahia.

    Nicholas Kipkirui

    The former Zoo Kericho player has been on fire of late. Goals against Zamalek and Vihiga United have given him the much needed confidence ahead of the derby. Just like Oliech, it is going to be his first derby and he will do everything to ensure he leaves a good mark.
