Hassan Oktay has paraded Gor Mahia’s starting eleven that will host Sofapaka at Moi Stadium in Kisumu on Sunday.

Jacques Tuyisenge has been passed fit to play against Batoto ba Mungu after sitting out the last league match against Chemelil Sugar.

The Rwandan talisman will lead the attacking line-up alongside the current top scorer of the club, Nicholas Kipkirui.

Samuel Onyango, who scored the solitary goal in the reverse fixture that won Gor Mahia the match, has maintained his position in the team. He will start on the right wing.
