Mombasa RFC coach Chris Atingo believes they can add misery to Mwamba’s season when they meet in the fifth round of the Kenya Cup on Saturday, January 13, 2018, in Nairobi.
Atingo has named the match day 23 that sees Isaac Situma come in for Wechuli who has work commitment as Henry Omindo comes in for Sammy Maraga who drops to the bench.
Both teams are in the relegation zone but Mwamba have one point against Mombasa’s zero. A win for either side is important to kick-start their season after four matches of defeats.
Mwamba have fallen to Nakuru RFC, Impala, Quins and most recently Strathmore Leos as Mombasa have gone down to Blak Blad, Nondies, Kabras Sugar and Impala Saracens.
“Yes they are winless same with us but they are still a quality side and they are at home. It’s not going to be easy but pressure is on them,” said Atingo.
Influential Gabriel Makatiani moves from 10 to fullback as Kevin Owuor gets a nod to start while Ian Njoroge and Ezra Mulusa retain their slots at centre.
