Roma returns as Kim rings changes against Stima

Mathare United defender Andrew Juma in action in a past match.

Head coach Francis Kimanzi has made four changes in his first eleven for the Round 17 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) match against Western Stima at Kasarani on Saturday.

Allan Owiny retains his place in goal. The Ugandan will be shielded by back four that has Andrew Juma and Johnstone Omurwa at the heart of defence with the former returning from suspension.

David Owino keeps his place at left back while James Situma starts on the opposite end. Situma will captain the team in the absence of Chrispin Oduor who has a back problem.

Club top scorer Cliff Nyakeya is also out due to injury and he will be replaced by Tyson Otieno with Alphonce Ndonye also getting the nod. Roy Okal will provide defensive cover behind them.

Upfront, the pair of James Kinyanjui and Kevin Kimani will play either side of Clifford Alwanga who returns from injury.
