Mashemeji Derby: Gor Mahia draft in Ondiek as Leopards name Sichenje

Bernard Ondiek has been drafted into coach Steve Pollack’s starting team against AFC Leopards scheduled for Sunday 10 November. Ondiek, a central midfielder on a normal day, will serve in the right back position, filling in for Wellington Ochieng who completely misses the clash.

David Mapigano starts between the sticks for the home team as Ondiek, Geoffrey Ochieng, Joash Onyango, and Charles Momanyi play in defense.

The midfield has Tobias Otieno and Lawrence Juma with captain Kenneth Muguna just ahead of the duo. Imports Francis Afriyie and Yikpe Gnamien will join Clifton Miheso in attack.

AFC Leopards, on the other hand, have only brought in Collins Sichenje as a new inclusion from their last time out. In goal starts Ugandan Benjamin Ochan and he will have Clyde Senaji and Soter Kayumba protecting him from the center. Wide out start Dennis Sikhayi and Isaac Kipyegon.
