In his absence Vihiga lost to Nairobi Stima and drew with Modern Coast Rangers and assistant coach Francis Xavier says his return is a boost for his team.

-Bernard is one of our best players and definitely having him back will be a big boost for us against a tough side like Wazito. We hope he will not be affected by jet lag and will be ready to play. He's a strong character and if given a chance he will fight well for the team, Xavier told Futaa.com.

Vihiga sits at the helm of the KPL log with 51 points.
