Nairobi City Stars have bolstered their squad with the return of three key players ahead of their upcoming FKF Premier League match against Kariobangi Sharks at Police Sacco on Saturday afternoon.

Midfielders Newton Ochieng and Elvis Noor, along with goalkeeper Edwin Mukolwe, are all available for selection and poised to face Sharks in matchday 23.

Meanwhile, Newton was absent from both the Gor Mahia match and the previous one against Bandari after being directly ejected in a prior game against Shabana in Machakos.

The trio is joined by Mohammed Bajaber, who returns after sitting out the last three games against Shabana, Bandari, and Gor Mahia.

Mukolwe replaces newcomer Byron Owino in goal, while Tony steps in for Brian Mose Nyambane. Bajaber takes the place of Andrew Kisilu, who is rested for the first time this season, and Noor replaces youngster Rogers Obusu Wasega in the squad.
