Thika United have been handed a massive boost heading to the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) clash, against title contenders Mathare United on Saturday 23 July, with the return to the team of four key players.
Suleiman Ng’otho and Ugandan Samuel Mwanje, both who missed the Western Stima game on suspension, and the duo of skipper Dennis Odhiambo and Mwinyi Kibwana who were out injured are back in the team.
Odhiambo last played in the 0 – 4 loss to AFC Leopards while Kibwana’s last action was in the team’s last game of the first leg, against Bandari. Their return means head coach James Nandwa has a full team to prepare ahead of the Mathare test and he has revealed his satisfaction.
“I am happy to have them all back and after a slow start to the second leg, I hope we can be able to get our season back on track. I now have a full house, just what you would want when about to face a team like Mathare United.
“I am confident we will prevail,” he said.
Nandwa will however, still have to do without the services of Nigerian forward Ichi Chibueze, who has not yet been cleared to play following his move to the side from second tier team, Shabana FC.
