Leopards coach Andre Cassa Mbungo has kept faith with Ezekiel Owade in goal once more as Eric Bakame is relegated to the bench.
Brian Marita, Vincent Oburu and Paul Were have been charged to look for goals as Ingwe look for their first derby win since March 2016.
For Gor Mahia, Francis Kahata and Kenneth Muguna - who scored as they romped to a 2-0 win in the reverse fixture - have been named among the starting 11.
Jacques Tuyisenge and Nicholas Kipkrui will lead the onslaught this afternoon.
