Team manager Gilbert Selebwa says the return of Oburu is definitely good news for the team. "Yes, he reported today (Wednesday), he trained very well and looked fit again, but we will have to handle him cautiously until he gets into shape.

"He gives us options and increases the competition which in turn makes players to work harder. He is a player who gives us a different dimension up front, and his return I believe will be beneficial," Selebwa told Goal.

AFC Leopards are in a perfect run of four straight wins in the top tier.
