Harambee Starlets head coach David Ouma has revealed his preferred approach to the friendly match against Ethiopia at Kenyatta Stadium, Machakos on Saturday.

Ouma will use the friendly tie to gauge his side's readiness for the 2020 Olympics qualifier against Malawi on August 28 and September 4.

“We have put in a lot of effort in training and it is now time for me to assess how well my players can perform," Ouma told the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) website.

“Ethiopia is a good side as we lost to them at the Cecafa Women Championships last year in Rwanda so it will be an end to end affair. We are going to attack and I’m confident we’ll get a positive result."

Ouma has been in charge of the Harambee Starlets' residential training, which started on Monday and culminates with the Ethiopia friendly.
