The club will be without three experienced players

Kenya Police FC have provided injury updates on three players ahead of their clash with FC Talanta in a Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKFPL) encounter on Wednesday.

The Law Enforcers will be looking to continue their strong form following their 2-1 win over Nairobi City Stars in their previous league match.

On a positive note, the club confirmed that experienced defender Baraka Badi has made steady progress in his recovery from a leg injury and has started fitness work.

"Badi sustained a peroneus tendon injury that has seen him out for a while now, but the recovery process under the best physical medics in the country has been magnificent.

"The fullback has embarked on strength training and is expected in full training in two weeks," the club said.

On the other hand, Reagan Otieno will continue his spell on the treatment table and is set to miss the match due to a niggly injury.

"It has been a tough start to the season for Otieno due to occasional pain in his left knee, but luckily it has been well managed by our medics.

"He has embarked on strength training, and he is expected back in full training in three weeks," the club added.

Police also provided an update on winger David Okoth saying that he has made slight progress in his recovery and has returned to light training.

"David Okoth has now been out for three weeks with a hamstring strain, and the medical team is still monitoring his injury closely and will give a final report on his return before the end of this week," the club statement concluded.

Police will be keen to register another win against 14th-placed FC Talanta, and make it five straight FKF Premier League victories.

The match will take place on Wednesday, 15 February, at the Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani, with the kick-off set for 3 PM.
