Eighth placed Strathmore Leos welcome Daniel Othieno as they take on Resolution Impala Saracens in Kenya Cup match day eight action at the Impala Club.
Othieno returns from a lengthy injury layoff, slotting into the backrow alongside Simbas captain Brian Nyikuli and former Western Bulls stalwart Elkeans Musonye.
Mitch Ocholla’s charges have been hit by a massive player exodus and as a result of the rebuilding process find themselves in the league’s lower rungs. They showed plenty of grit and determination in the 12-24 loss to the Sarries on November 19 and will have to dig deep to ask questions of their opponents who sit fourth on the log.
