Odera, Ouma bolster KCB after key departures

Nairobi - Ezekiel Odera and Francis Ouma will bolster KCB's attack after the departure of top scorer Jacob Keli.
Odera has re-signed at the club after a bad year at Thika United in 2013 while Ouma is close to joining up at the Ruaraka club from Mathare United.
The two will make up for the loss of Keli who scored 17 goals in the KPL last season and Clifford Alwanga who scored eight.
Head coach Juma Abdalla admits that securing the services of the two will go a long way to helping them get back to the scoring form they had last season.
" We have been hard pressed to get in players who can do a job for us in the circumstances that we are in and it has been difficult, he said.
" Together, we lost the best strike-force in the KPL and that is hard to replace for any club.
" Odera can score goals and we will hope he does because we need him to do so and if we can get in Ouma, he will help too because of his record.
" We have to look forward and hope for the best, that is all we can do, he added.
KCB will be hard-pressed to finish the 2014 KPL season in the fourth place they did in 2013.
