Forward Erick Kapaito has also explained why the Slum Boys have started the season better
Patrick Ngunyi and Peter Oudu have given the Kariobangi Sharks of the Kenya Football Federation (FKF) Premier League (FKF) a big boost after returning to training on Tuesday morning.
The duo have been out due to injuries but have returned in time as the Slum Boys prepare to play Gor Mahia in their next league outing.
“Patrick Ngunyi and Peter Oudu resumed training today [Tuesday] after some time on the sidelines, “confirmed the Nairobi-based party through its social media platform.
“Oudu is back after suffering a concussion against Western Stima as Ngunyi recovers from a patellar tendonitis injury.”
Meanwhile, forward Erick Kapaito believes that this season he is in pole position to score a lot of goals and help the Sharks fight for the league title.
The forward has so far managed to score seven goals and leads the race for the Golden Boot.
“All the players, and especially the forwards, want to play and score.” declared the forward.
“Of course I was frustrated, but I’m happy that I managed to recover and now I take a good look at myself and I’m working well with the physio. I think I’m in a position where I can do better.”
The Sharks have started the season relatively well and are second in the table with 12 points after six games. Kapaito has explained why the charges led by William Muluya are working well.
“Everyone’s morale is high and we are pushing each other from training ground to play,” added the forward.
“We have that urge to win and that’s why after Ulinzi [Stars] game, everyone was frustrated because we didn’t get all three points. “
In the game against the Soldiers last weekend, James Mazembe would have scored for the hosts in the 14th minute, but his effort, from a very promising spot, hit home. Patila Omotto also reportedly gave the Nairobi club a first goal in the 20th minute, but her shot went wide.
Ulinzi Stars’ first clear chance came in the 32nd minute, but Masita Masuta deflected his effort to deny the quiet Soldiers a first goal.
Stars coach Benjamin Nyangweso made a first substitution in the 55th minute when he retired Elvis Nandwa for Oscar Wamalwa. Five minutes later, the Nakuru team was unable to break the stalemate again when Brian Birgen’s fierce attack was stopped by Brian Bwire in the Sharks’ goal.
Nyangweso made two late changes; as Ibrahim Shambi replaced Daniel Waweru while Masita’s place was taken by Clinton Omondi. They didn’t make much of an impact, however, as the two sides shared the spoils of the stalemate.
