Dennis Oliech will lead Gor Mahia's goal onslaught when they take on Ulinzi Stars at the Moi Stadium-Kisumu on Sunday 21 April.
In a much-changed team, Gor Mahia will depend on the services of Shaban Odhoji in goal with the defence remaining virtually unchanged. Philemon Otineo will be manning the right back as youngster Geoffrey Ochieng mans the left back spot; captain Harun Shakava partnering Joash Onyango at the heart of the defence.
New signing Hashim Sempala will have a place on the bench with Ernest Wendo preferred in the task of screening the back four. With Oliech starting, Rwandese international Jacques Tuyisenge has been relegated to the bench so is Nicholas Kipkurui who gives way for George Odhiambo.
There is positive news as first choice keeper Boniface Oluoch returns but will have to be content with a place on the bench in the tie.
