Defenders Fred Nkata, Yusuf Mainge, Frank Odhiambo, Dennis Ng'ang'a, Peter Oudu, Philemon Otieno.

Forwards Benson Omalla, Jules Ulimwengu, Joshua Onyango, John Ochieng'.

This will be the first match for new coach Andreas Spier and his assistant Michael Nam after the sacking of former tactician Mark Harrison and his entire technical bench.

The German will, however, start life without experienced centre-back Haron Shakava, who ditched the former champions for league debutants Kenya Police.

"I am very happy for this opportunity to coach Gor Mahia, I am aware it is a club with tradition and football history," Spier told GOAL.

"I also know the fifth place they are in [on the table] does not reflect the ambition of the club. As the technical bench, we will try our best...

"I know it is a young team but this is a situation we can resolve, try to push the young players, and get immediate results.

Probable XI for Gor Mahia: Mathews, Ng'ang'a, Onyango, Nkata, Mainge, Otieno, Odhiambo, A. Onyango, S. Onyango, Omondi, Ulimwengu.

PositionPosta Rangers Squad
Goalkeepers Bryne Omondi, and Jairus Adira.

The Mailmen come into the match motivated by their last win against the same opponent. They had managed to get a 3-0 win, with all goals coming in the first half.

Surprisingly, the brains behind the win - coach Stanley Okumbi - opted out a couple of days ago. This might affect the visitors owing to the setup that had been put in place.

Probable XI for Posta Rangers: Omondi, Osok, Apudo, Suleiman, Kevin Ouma, Nyatini, Dwanga, Odero, Nambute, Luganji, Lokuwam.

Match Preview

K’Ogalo are currently placed fifth on the log with 27 points from 16 matches, six points adrift of table-toppers Kakamega Homeboyz, and victory might take them to the third position depending on the outcome of the teams above them.

Meanwhile, Posta Rangers are placed sixth on the 18-team table with 25 points from 15 matches. They have managed seven wins, four draws, and four defeats.

Last season, Posta Rangers won the first meeting 1-0 but Gor Mahia recovered to win the second round meeting 1-0. In the previous season, the first meeting ended in a 1-1 draw but the second-round clash was called off owing to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

In the last six matches, Posta have managed two wins against K’Ogalo with the former champions winning twice while the other two ended in draws.
