  • Philemon Otieno of Gor Mahia.

    Right-Back: Philemon Otieno

    The versatile Otieno is good at reading games and helping the midfielders in build-ups. His experience in that position will be vital on Sunday.

  • Gor Mahia players and coach Mark Harrison.

    Left-Back: Fred Nkata

    Having played for Bandari in the continental assignment, the Ugandan has experience of what to expect. Nkata is good at reading the game and helping in attack as well.

  • Frank Odhiambo of Gor Mahia.

    Centre-Back: Frank Odhiambo

    Touted as the next big thing in Kenyan football, the youngster will be expected to start at the heart of the K'Ogalo defence. Good at aerial balls and building up play from the back.

  • Haron Shakava, Gor Mahia, April 2018

    Centre-Back: Haron Shakava

    The Kenya international should ensure leadership is provided at the back. Presents an aerial threat and positive energy for the team when on the pitch.

  • Ernest Wendo of Gor Mahia v Simon Ndungu of AFC Leopards

    Defensive Midfielder: Ernest Wendo

    The lanky midfielder is expected to provide cover for the defence and help in build-ups from the back.

  • Gor Mahia player John Macharia.

    Central Midfielder: John Macharia

    He played a massive role in the previous round against Al-Ahly Merowe. His league exploits mean he is expected to retain the position.

  • Alpha Onyango of Gor Mahia.

    Attacking Midfielder: Alpha Onyango

    The youngster has been impressive for Mark Harrison's charges, and after his exploits this season, he should be considered in the first XI.

  • Samuel Onyango of Gor Mahia training.

    Right Offensive: Samuel Onyango

    The former Sony Sugar player was on target in the previous round. He has been rejuvenated this season and it will be unthinkable to leave him out.

  • Benson Omalla of Gor Mahia and Kenya and Harambee Stars.j

    Left Offensive: Benson Omalla

    The attacker is always lively and despite being a youngster, his approach is always on point.

  • Jules Ulimwengu of Gor Mahia.

    Centre Forward: Jules Ulimwengu

    The Burundi international has been blazing hot and cold this season. But due to a lack of better options, he might be given an opportunity to lead the attacking department.
