Status quo retained against KCB

Mathare United players pose for a team photo prior to kick off of their Round Four Kenyan Premier League match against Posta Rangers at Afraha Stadium on December 29,2018.

Head coach Francis Kimanzi has lined up the same side that beat Posta Rangers 2-1 last weekend for Wednesday’s Round Five Kenyan Premier League (KPL) match against KCB at Kasarani.

David Okello continues in goal where he will be shielded by an unchanged back four that has David Owino at left back, James Situma on the opposite end while Andrew Juma and Johnstone Omurwa form the central defence partnership.


Skipper Chrispin Oduor will be charged with providing the creative spark alongside club top scorer Cliff Nyakeya in the number 10 role. Roy Okal will provide defensive cover behind them.

Upfront, Kevin Kimani and James Kinyanjui will play either side of target man Clifford Alwanga.

There is only one change on the bench where John Mwangi replaces Ahmed Ahmad who is away due to personal reasons.
