The Kisumu-based side lost their key players to rivals, among them the 2016 Most Valuable Player Kenneth Muguna. After a one-all draw with Kariobangi Sharks on Sunday, head coach Henry Omino has revealed his plans ahead of the second leg.
"It has been a lukewarm beginning for us, especially after losing several key players. We will have to bring in reinforcements, to fill some areas since we intend to come back stronger in the second leg. The gap between us and the team above us is not that big and we will definitely recover.
"We will continue working harder and hopefully we can utilize the chances we create on the pitch," he told Goal.
The Powermen have managed to win two matches, drawn four and lost seven games.
