Kisii RFC head to their last three matches of the season needing to bag maximum points to survive from Kenya Cup relegation.
Head coach Nick Abok has named the matchday 23 that will do duty against Strathmore Leos at home on Saturday from 4 pm.
Flanker Ervin Kanyanya skippers the side for the crucial home fixture as they draw inspiration from a recent home win over Mwamba and one point they picked against Homeboyz.
Ian Amara starts on the left wing with Aggrey Kitoi on the other side while John Ochar is at fullback. Speaking on the preparation of the game, Abok says “we’ve done the best we could, hope the lessons from the previous games will help us win the game.”
They face a Strathmore Leos that is chasing playoffs after recent wins over Nakuru, Mwamba and Blak Blad.
“I regard them highly, they have done well in the season and we can't take them lightly.”
Strathmore chase playoffs, Kisii are fighting for survival.
“It's the kind of situation we would not like to be in, but the reality is we want to stay in the competition and hence we have to win games to stay in it,” added Abok.
Steve Mogonchi, Robert Awichi, Francis Momanyi, Mark Mwanga and Kevin Odhiambo are some of the replacements.
