The return of several keys players from different military engagements is a big relief to Ulinzi Stars’ coach Dunstan Nyaudo in the chase for the Sportpesa Premier League title.

For the second week running Nyaudo was full of praise of his team with the arrival of goalkeeper James Saruni, defenders Mohamed ‘Rio’ Hassan, Omar Mbongi, Brian Birgen and captain Oliver Ruto.

“I’m impressed with the performance of the playing unit following the arrival of these players. Against, Tusker we created five clear chances of which, three hit the crossbar,” Nyaudo said.

“We now have a full house, which means we have more options to supplement young players,” he said after their 0-0 draw with Tusker at Afraha Stadium at the weekend.

Ulinzi are tenth position with 10 points from eight matches.

The soldiers beat Sony Sugar 2-1 in Awendo two weeks back with the returning players playing a big part in the victory.
