Ulinzi Stars Vice-chair Major Joe Birgen has made a last-minute rallying call on local fans to light up the atmosphere Kenyatta Stadium, Machakos as he seeks to use their support to lift them over Smouha SC on Saturday.

The four-time Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions face a daunting task of overturning a 4-0 first leg deficit against their Egyptian opponents in order to secure qualification to the CAF Confederation Cup second round.

“It will not be an easy match because they are a good team. But in football, everything is possible. If we minimize on our mistakes, then I believe we can come out with a positive result,” Birgen told ulinzistarsfc.com.

Head Coach Benjamin Nyangweso has made two changes to the squad that started in Alexandria, Cairo and will hold the belief the Military Men can deliver the ‘Barcelona miracle’.

The experienced Amwoka Evans returns to the starting line up, replacing Oscar Wamalwa who drops to bench.

Churchill Muloma comes in for loan signing Baron Oketch who is yet to make an impression at the club  since his move from record KPL champions Gor Mahia.

ULINZI SQUAD
James Saruni (C), Brian Birgen, Omar Mbongi, Geoffrey Kokoyo, Mohammed Hassan, Boniface Onyango, Churchill Muloma, John Kago, Oscar Wamalwa, Daniel Waweru and Samuel Onyango.

SUBSTITUTES
Finius Odhiambo, Ben Sande, Ruto Oliver ,Wamalwa Oscar, Baron Oketch, Onuonga Justine.
