Impala head to Kabras with both sides coming at the back of 100% start to the season with this set to be the highlight fixture of matchday 5. Antony Odhiambo starts at fly-half for the visitors with Mark Kwemoi deployed at fullback as Bradley Ochieng and Quinto Oongo start on both wings.
Eric Kerre is joined by Wambiri Chege, Daniel Ndome, Elvis Oroko, Xavier Bett, Edmund Anya, Richard Sidindi and Michael Munyua on the bench.
Kabras Sugar named a strong squad that sees skipper Max Adak start at hook with Hosea Ngesa starting at loose-head and Ugandan international Asuman Mugerwa at tight-head.
The Backrow has Dan Sikuta, George Nyambua and Johannes Claude as Tanga and Logan start as the day's halfbacks. A lethal backline consists of Paul Abuto, Felix Aynage, Nick Barasa, Mario Wilson and Ugandan speedster Philip Wokorach.
Bram Mayaka, Geoff Shitambasi, Joseph Odero, Kelvin Kebole, Steve Oluoch, Kelvin Keegan, Johnstone Mung'ao and Malik Habil can only hope to come off the bench.
Leading with 20 points, Kabras have a goal difference of 159 points against Impala's 17 who are also three points behind. A defeat to Kabras and a win for KCB in Nairobi will see the Sarries lose second position going to the new year.
Kabras and Impala met in January at Impala Club but it was the visitors who came out on top winning 17-33 on their way to the Kenya Cup final.
