Okwi and Bocco return in the starting line-up to face Al Masry

Twin strikers Emmanuel Okwi and skipper John Bocco return in the Simba SC starting line-up to face Al Masry in the CAF Confederation Cup first leg tie.

The duo did not feature in the previous matches because of injuries. Laudit Mavugo and Mzamiru Yassin who started against Stand United drop to the bench to make way for the recalled strikers.

In his press conference on Tuesday, Pierre Lechantre confirmed that Okwi was fit to play but he suggested about the last assessment for Bocco before making a decision to start him.
