"Ian (Otieno) has been unwell, he was sick and that is why we have not seen him on the pitch during past two matches. But he has recovered well and even reported back to training. It is a good thing to the coach because it gives him options when all players are well.

"Our aim is trying as hard as we can to take Ingwe back to the top, we are committed and will do our best."
