Though it is hard for black to win the a4 pawn somehow, but it is the only black’s chance for a win. Black will need to bring the king to the queen-side, protect his “b” pawn and take the a4 pawn then. During this time white will take a pawn or even 2 pawns on the king-side. However, black shouldn’t worry about it too much. 2 connected passed pawns should guarantee a black’s win.
