Ulinzi Stars have received a major injury boost ahead of the Kenyan Premier League match against Nzoia Sugar.

Team captain, Hassan ‘Rio’ Mohammed, resumed training with the rest of the squad and could be ready for selection for Sunday’s game.

Mohammed picked a concussion in the weekend's win over Vihiga United.

Coach Dunstan Nyaudo has also received good news following the return to action of George Odhiambo and Mark Bikokwa, who missed the weekend game with knee knocks.

John Kago, who has missed the last two matches with a knee injury is also back in training and in contention for a place against Nzoia who will travel to Nakuru over the weekend.

However, defender Eugene Ochieng, and midfielder Oscar Injika will wait longer for their maiden appearances after they were ruled out with knee and ankle injuries respectively.

“Eugene has to see an orthopaedic surgeon to ascertain the extent of his knee injury while Injika is also facing the same for his ankle injury.

“They have been referred to the Defence Forces Memorial Hospital for the checkups and after that, we will be able to determine how long they may be out,” Team Doctor John Imboywa told the club website.

Meanwhile, Omar Boraafya remains sidelined, having been ruled out of the past weekend game with an injury.
