Mathare United will play Sofapaka in their Kenyan Premier League (KPL) game on Sunday without the services of defender Juma Andrew.

The 23-year-old has been a key player for the 2008 league champions, helping the team to register numerous positive results in the top tier. However, he will have to watch from the stands after accumulating a fifth yellow card against Zoo FC on Wednesday.

Gor Mahia's Juma Lawrence will have to be careful when his team play Nzoia Sugar on the same day.

The midfielder is on four yellow cards and another caution will automatically lock him out of the next game.

Others who are on four yellow cards as well are KCB's Agwanda Enock, James Kinyanjui of Mathare United, and Kariobangi Sharks trio Sven Yidah, Patilah Omotto, and Samuel Olwande.

K'Ogalo, who are the defending champions, are on 41 points, two more than second-placed Kakamega Homeboyz, while 11-time league champions Tusker FC are third with 38.
