Mathare-Sofa name squads for Tuesday duel

Coach John Baraza could record a fifth successive league victory this afternoon when his side goes out in week 13 of the Kenyan Premier League (KPL), but first, he has to dispatch log leaders Mathare United against whom they play today.

Baraza, on a five match unbeaten run, has revealed how his side lines up today against the slum boys.

Justine Ndikumana keeps his place between the sticks- and will be guarded by skipper George Maelo and Titus Achesa on the flanks. Moussa Omar and Faina Jacobs are in central defense.

Mohammed Kilume, Elli Asieche and Cornelius Juma stay in the midfield with Brian Magonya just a head of them to provide the link between the trio and the attacking duo of Umaru Kasumba and John Avire.

Cliff Kasuti, Mico Justine, Willis Ouma and Telvin Omutere are on the bench.

Their hosts Mathare United on the other hand have Allan owiny in goal. David Owino and James Situma marshal the flanks whereas Roma Juma and Omurwa Johnstone stay central.
