Thika United to miss trio for Chemelil clash

Coach John Kamau confirms to Goal that striker Michael Olunga, defender Joseph Kuria and goalie Mike Wanyika will not be available for match
Kenya Premier League side Thika United will miss services of key striker Michael Olunga for their crunch visit to Chemelil Sugar this weekend.

Olunga, a student at Technical University, will be sitting for exams. The striker has been a key addition in John Kamau’s squad but has missed last two games on similar reasons.

However, Kamau is upbeat that Olunga’s gap will be filled. Thika will also miss services of midfielder Joseph Kuria and reserve custodian Mike Wanyika, who is nursing a sprained finger.

Caoch Kamau says though Kuria has resumed training with the rest of the first team players, he will not risk playing him as he is yet to hit 100% fitness levels.

Sixth placed Thika will be hoping to end Chemelil Sugar unbeaten run when the two sides clash. “It will be a very tough match for us because Chemelil are good at home," Kamau told Goal.

“However, what is important for us is to keep winning and recover from the draws. We are slowly moving up after starting slow and I am confident that we will maintain our consistency.”
