KCB ready for Bandari showdown in KPL action


KCB FC has intensified its preparations for tomorrow’s Kenya Premier League encounter against Bandari FC at the Mombasa Sports Club.

The bankers, who are currently occupying the tenth position on the log with 34 points will be keen to turn their fortunes around following recent tough outings in the league.

“We know that Bandari is a top team with quality players. They will come at as offensively and they have also proved that they can be solid at the defence. We need to create as many chances as possible to claim all the points,”  said KCB FC Coach Bernard Mwalala.

Striker Derrick Otanga and Philemon Nyakwakwa are expected to lead the attack for Mwalala’s charges while the trio of Farraj Ominde, Danson Namasaka and Henry Ochieng forms the midfield.

Collins Neto, who recently joined KCB did not travel with the squad. Captain Brian Ochieng will also miss the fixture due to a toe injury while midfielder Michael Mutinda is still ruled out for his long-term injury.

At the heart of the defence, Kenyan international Haniff Wesonga, Nashon Alembi, Kevin “Chumsy” Otieno and Herit Mungai are all expected to start against the Mombasa-based side.

Other inclusions in the squad include Festus Shikhalo, Gabriel Andika, Stephen Etyang, Shadrack Simiyu, James Mazembe, Vincent Ondabu, Bernard Odhiambo, Dismas Ongocho, Bixente Otieno, Derrick Otieno, Francis Oduor, Evans Juma, and Lameck Luhangala.

The team will take on Kakamega Homeboyz in Mozzart Cup quarterfinal at the Police Sacco Stadium on April 27.
