Mean Machine welcome back key center Maurice Murimi ahead of their short trip to Strathmore Leos on matchday 13 of the 2018/19 Kenya Cup on Sat March 16, 2019.
Murimi hasn't played in the last couple of weeks and his return is a big boost to Ramsfield Matekwa's charges against relegation threatened mates at Madaraka.
Leos(11) and Machine(12) are separated by only four points at 10 and 6 respectively with Machine's only win of the season coming against Leos when they met on matchday 2.
Murimi starts at midfield alongside Festus Shiashi with other available playmakers Bruce Odhiambo and Trevor Asina starting at fly-half and flank. Valentine Odoyo is at fullback with Antony Obonyo being the scrumhalf.
Fly-half Lucas Oppal captains Leos with Wiseman Aganya and Walter Oteku starting at midfield as Matoka Andrew is at fullback.
Machine and Leos risk relegation if they don't recover as they sit on the danger zone.
