AFC Leopards head coach Stewart Hall has named his best eleven that is set to come against Muhoroni Youth in week five of the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) at the Mbaraki Sports Club on Sunday 16 April.
Despite intimating in his pre match comments that Marcus Abwao was not fit to start the game, the ex Sofapaka FC coach has named the youngsters in his starting team with both the duo of Dennis Sikhayi and Paul Kiongera both missing.
In place of Paul Kiongera, Hall has tasked Ugandan Allan Katerrega with the task of linking play between his midfield and attack with Joshua Mawira coming in for Sikhayi. Ian Otieno who has been omitted from the national team duties retains his place between the sticks with Salim Abdalla, Robinson Kamura and Mawira joining Abwao in defence.
