Harambee Stars could be without injured duo of goalkeeper Patrick Matasi and winger Ayub Timbe when they take on Togo in their second qualifier match of 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani, on Monday evening.

Matasi suffered a thigh strain, while Timbe aggravated a foot injury as Kenya held hosts Egypt to a 1-1 draw on Thursday in Alexandria in their first Group ‘G’ qualifier match.

Timbe flew to Belgium for treatment and is expected in Nairobi Saturday evening. Stars coach Francis Kimanzi has said he is waiting for medical reports for the two players but he indicated that the two will most likely miss Monday’s game against Togo.

“Matasi and Ayub are still being assessed by the medical team and will have to undergo late fitness tests in Kenya to determine if they will play a part in the Togo match,” Kimanzi told Nation Sport.

Kimanzi reserved special praise for former AFC Leopards and Posta Rangers custodian Ian Otieno who replaced Matasi, but was quick to add that the whole team did well on Thursday.

“I was impressed by Ian’s performance especially because he was called in abruptly following Matasi’s injury. Nonetheless football is a team sport and the overall performance of the team was good, we have noted a few areas we need to work and we believe that we can get a positive result against Togo come Monday,” he said
