The skipper was in dazzling form during the 4-1 win over AFC leopards in the Mashemeji derby. With Lawrence Juma and Ernest Wendo behind him, Muguna has excelled in the attacking midfield role and has four goals so far.

The Homeboyz skipper won the golden boot last season and has already registered three goals so far this campaign.

Wanga specializes in goals-against Gor Mahia and has score against Gor Mahia and has scored against them with three different teams; Tusker, AFC Leopards and Homeboyz.

He should keep the likes of Joash Onyango and Wellington Ochieng on their toes.

Francis Afriyie

The Ghanian striker was the hero in the derby with a brace and a man of the match performance. He is quick, strong and with a deadly eye for goal. The link-up he shares with Muguna especially is telepathic and could be dangerous should Homebyz give them space and time to operate.

Stephen Etiang

The speedy winger is a nightmare for opposing full-backs. Fast with and without the ball, Etiang makes full-backs wary of making attacking runs and it would leave space behind that he will thankfully exploit.

His deliveries are also on point and with Wanga waiting in the box, Gor Mahia will need to be careful.
