Tusker FC head coach George Nsimbe will be banking on his returning players when they take on hosts Thika United in week Two of the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) action.
Nsimbe who admitted that they were shocked by their last outing results against Nzoia Sugar FC said it was noble to pick up maximum points in their next game but admitted they were expecting a tough game against the hosts.
"We lost our first game but at an glad that we are welcoming some of our players who missed that game back and I expect us to give a good show in our next match.
"We know Thika (United) lost their first match too and will make it hard for us but we are ready. The morale in the team is high and we expect to pick all the three points, " Nsimbe told Soka.
The ex Azam coach was however not impressed by the way they conceded the five goals against Nzoia terming them easy but intimated that it was an area they have worked on in training in the week.
"If you watched the game then you realise we gave away some cheap goals more so from the set pieces and it's an area we have worked on the entire week and I'm looking forward to a better game against Thika," Nsimbe added.
Tusker's game against Thika United is slated for Sunday 19 March and will commence at 2pm EAT.
