Midfielder Michael Mutinda and U-20 prodigy Francis Muturi have been ruled out of the weekend fixture, after the Team Medics analysis showed a backache and a body infection as causes for the drop of the duo.

“We now have five the total number of first team players out on injury, two (Collins Okumu and Baraka Badi) on long term but the three (Mutinda, Muturi and Chibueze) will be available soon;
