However, the mission could fall flat if the team’s key players fail fitness tests ahead of the match set for Moi Stadium in Kisumu.
“We are battling massive injuries after the Western Stima game. I have at least six to seven players, who are struggling and if you add Dennis Oliech, then that is almost a full squad for a single match,” Oktay told Goal in an interview.
“Goalkeeper Boniface Oluoch is sick, Jacques Tuyisenge as an ankle problem same as defenders Charles Momanyi and Shafik Batambuze, while Shaban Odhoji is also struggling. All I want is to get a report from the medical stuff before I know what to do.”
The Cypriot coach has admitted that they must make better use of the chances they create to kill off opponents.
“That is normal to drop points, it normal and in football that is normal, Against KCB we had injuries and we were losing 3-0 but managed to get a draw despite the mising seven chances. We were supposed to get maximum points from KCB," Oktay continued.
“It was also the same thing against Western Stima, we dominated the match and hit the post twice plus a number of missed chances but we finally dropped points because Stima came looking for a point."
