Alex Orotomal has been ruled out of the FKF Shield quarter-final match against Kenya Police.

Goal has learnt that the Nigerian and Isaac Oduro have not traveled with the rest of AFC Leopards squad. Dennis Sikhayi has made it to the team set to face the law enforcers even though he lacks match fitness.

Argentine coach Rodolfo Zapata says it is not going to be an easy outing for his charges. "Alex and Oduro were injured in the game against Wazito, we have not included them in the team, but Shikhayi is a doubt, we will have to asses him before making a decision.

"It adds to our already piled list of the players who are out injured, but we will give our best.

"In Kenya there is no easy team, and we are expecting a tougher outing against Police but we hope to get a result that will take us to the next stage."

Zapata will, however, draw strength from the availability of Ezekiel Odera, who missed the last three games with suspension as the Argentine prepares to defend the title.
