Bidco United coach Anthony Akhulia has challenged his players who did not take part in the Betway Cup to rise up for them as the Betking Premier League (BPL) resumes this week.
Bidco lost 5-2 to Gor Mahia on post-match penalties in the semi-finals of the Betway Cup ending their dream of silverware this season.
They will play KCB on Wednesday at Ruaraka as the top tier league resumes after a two week break.
“We are proud of our performance in the Betway Cup but now we have to go back and prepare for the league. My biggest concern is the fact that we have played so many matches and so fatigue has set in for a number of our players.
“Those who have not been playing in the Cup competition should now rise up to the occasion and help us in the league,” he said.
Akhulia revealed that he has a large squad and they should be able to keep up with the huge demands of the league even as he revealed that his aim remains to maintain their position in the top tier.
“Having qualified for the top tier league this season, our biggest aim is to ensure we retain our status. If we finish 15th or first it does not matter. We will still be in the league,” he said.
