Bandari players have been given a clean bill of health and are fit for their Sunday Premier League match in Thika.

The Dockers are expected to leave Mombasa tomorrow for their away premier league match at Thika stadium

Newly appointed Bandari coach, Douglas Mutua, said in an interview that he is ready for the match.

“We know we are playing our opening match away but I have prepared my boys psychologically,” said Mutua.

“I respect Thika United but I have good boys who are capable of stunning them at their own turf”, said Mutua.

He has reinforced the team with experienced players who have fitted well.

Mutua was appointed the new coach of Bandari after former head coach Twahir Muhiddin resigned.

He said he was not worried even after Hajji Mwachoki, Abdi Simba, Wilson Oburu and Kevin “Keegan” Ngugi— all first choices in Bandari last season who have left for for greener pastures.

He said he would mould the team around Harambee Stars midfielder, Ali Breik, who has also been short-listed for the Kenya Premier League (KPL) best midfielder award.

Internationals Anthony Dafaa and Philip Opiyo are some of the experienced players in the team.

Other players Mutua looks up to for the new season include Victor Ali, Abdulwahab Musa and Evans Orodi.
