The line ups for this weekend's match of the week are out as Tusker hosts Mathare United at the Ruaraka grounds from 3 pm Kenyan time. Coach Robert Matano sticks with his attacking trio of Sydney Ochieng, Timothy Otieno and David Juma. 

His back four speaks height as Justine Omary and Sammy Mejja fill in to the flanks while Loyd Wahome and and Rodgers Aloro stay central. In the midfield, Hashim Sempala provides the link at the middle while John Kamau and Peter Nzuki stay wide.

The Lion will have plenty of depth from the bench should need be as youngster Farraj Ominde, recently returning from injury- stays on the bench alongside Boniface Muchiri and Jackson Macharia.

Coach Francis Kimanzi on the other hand keeps Allan Owiny in goal- guarded by the usual back four of David Owino, Andrew Juma, James Situma and Johnstone Omuurwa.

Chris Ochieng  starts upfront with Nyakeya Cliff just behind him. Roy Okal, Chrispin Oduor, Anthony Kimani and James Kinyanjui are the ones to provide link up play with the attacking duo.
