Last season’s runners Up Kabras Sugar have welcomed South Africa import Ntabeni Dukisa back into the match day squad as the sugar millers welcome Kenya Harlequin in a round seven Kenya Cup match to be played at Kakamega Showground on Saturday.

Dukisa was heavily missed last weekend when the sugar men missed many conversions despite their comfortable 34-14 win over Masinde Muliro University.

Overall, Kabras Sugar head coach Jerome Muller made seven changes ahead of the Quins match.

Kenya Simbas scrum half Brian Tanga will partner with lethal kicker Dukisa as new signing Steve Sikuta returns to the starting squad to partner his brother and captain Dan Sikuta and Collins Indeche.

Joseph Odero and Eugene Sifuna replace Asuman Mugerwa and Teddy Akala and will start alongside Ephraim Oduor in the front row.

Kabras Sugar are four points behind Oilers with 25 points after picking their fifth bonus point victory against MMUST and have a chance to top the league if they win their game in hand match against Nondescripts.

Menengai Oilers' six-match unbeaten run will be put to litmus test when they travel to play in-form Strathmore Leos side at Madaraka.

Oilers lead the standings with 29 points after a stellar start to the season but will have to deal with a stubborn Leos side who are joint-second with Kabras on 25 points and have only lost one match of the six played.
