Kabras Sugar make only two changes from the team that played Homeboyz to the side to take on KCB in the 11th round of the 2018/19 Kenya Cup.
Head Coach Henly Du Plessis named the matchday 23 on Wednesday ahead of Thursday’s departure from Kakamega with the match set to kick-off on Saturday at 4pm at Impala Club.
Loose-head Ephraim Oduor and lock Brian Juma come in for Hosea Ngesa(bench) and Charlton Mokua(bench) ahead of what will be the biggest match of the season so far.
Keegan Kevin and Felix Ayange are on the wings, Kenya Cup top-scorer Philip Wokorach at fullback, Logan Basson at first five-eighth while Nick Baraza is the second five-eighth.
Skipper Max Adaka, Asuman Mugerwa and Hillary Odhiambo are joined by Oduor and Juma to complete the tight five.
Kabras Sugar head to matchday 11 with 100% record and lead with 49 points, five above KCB. The bankers have beaten Kabras Sugar in back to back Kenya Cup finals; 2017 and 2018 both at KCB Sports Club.
This season, KCB have lost only one game and go to the game as the hunter looking to hand Kabras Sugar their first defeat of the season.
