Ulinzi Stars has confirmed that Kenya U23 midfielder Ibrahim Shambi will sit out of the Thursday 9 May Kenyan Premier League tie against Posta Rangers FC.
Apart from Shambi, the team will miss the services of defender Brian Birgen, who sustained a facial cut in their last outing against Nzoia Sugar FC; these as confirmed by the club’s doctor John Imboywa.
Apart from the duo, the soldiers will be without the services of Boniface Okinyi who suffered a groin injury in the same Bandari game.
Daniel Waweru, who suffered an ankle injury in April in the game against Western Stima had a recurrence of the injury in training ahead of the Gor Mahia game at Afraha Stadium and has also been put on extended rest.
The team, however, should welcome back defender Omar Mbongi, who was substituted in the second half of the Nzoia Sugar game.
Shambi scored in the reverse fixture to salvage a point for his side.
