Menengai Oilers continue to seek a second win of the season on Sat Jan 19 when they entertain relegation threatened Strathmore Leos at NAC from 2pm.

This fixture, LIVE on Bamba Sport, promises fireworks as Oilers are just three points above bottom-placed Leos.

Hooker Hillary Malweyi starts ahead of Hughes Anjera, Vincent Mwikali is in for Francis Awiti at the frontrow and Clinton Odhiambo replaces Ian Mwau at openside.

Head Coach Gibson Weru makes only one change to his backline with Austin Sikutwa replaces Eric Ombassa at outside centre.

Mike Mare, Edwin Korir, Ian Mwau, Theophilus Lusangalu and Antony Kibet are among those who will come off the bench.

Strathmore's Lucas Opal is back to the starting line up after starting from the bench in the defeat to Mwamba while Mayoka Andrew starts at fullback as Walter Oteku moves to 13. 

Menengai's only win came over Kenya Harlequin at the close of 2018 while Leos are yet to enjoy a win having lost all their opening six matches.

A win for Oilers will be a big boost as they look to make a mark in the debut season while a win for Leos will definitely kick-start their season, six weeks down the line.
