Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Ulinzi Stars is struggling so far. The team is thirteenth on the log with six points from the same number of matches.
Head Coach Dunstan Nyaudo says the team has been struggling mainly because of the many injuries the team is currently facing. He, however, hopes the situation will get better.
Injuries and returnees
Omar Mbongi and Ibrahim Shambi returned in the team's barren draw against Zoo FC. The two players missed the last two matches against Sofapaka and Nzoia Sugar FC on compassionate leave while striker Omar Boraafya is also back in training after weeks out with a thigh muscle strain that has locked him out of the last four matches.
Defenders George Omondi and Paul Muchika have been registered to feature in the first leg while Hassan Mohamed and Brian Birgen are injured but could make a return soon.
“It has been tough for me as a coach and all of us as a team with the injuries but I believe next week I will have everyone available, barring any more setbacks,” Nyaudo told the club's official portal.
Up next for Ulinzi Stars is an away game against Sony Sugar FC at the Green Stadium in Awendo on Sunday 13th January.
