AFC Leopards resume their league charge on Wednesday when they take on Muhoroni Youth at the Nyayo Stadium at 3pm.

Still reeling from a thrilling 3-2 third round victory over Mathare United in the GoTV Shield Cup on Saturday, the team will be keen to collect maximum points after a shocking 1-0 defeat to their opponents in March.

AFC Leopards head into the match as favorites given the results in the recent past few matches. With only one loss in the second leg, Ingwe will be looking to extend the fine form that has been witnessed in the the past few weeks. Getting off the blocks fast has now been a normal trend with Leopards and this might prove vital in the Wednesday match.

” We are targeting to get maximum points at home. Our mentality is to take each match with seriousness and win,” Pieter De Jongh said.

” The team is playing well, they look fit and can last for ninety minutes with some good possession play.”

” The goals can come from any player on the pitch but if our strikers take their chances more, we will enjoy winning matches by even larger margins.”

” A win will give us confidence to close the gap on the league leaders. As I have said before, if we win our matches, this can go to the last day. It is not all over.”

Last season, the two teams shared the spoils with Leopards winning the first leg 3-0 while Muhoroni were 2-1 winners in the reverse fixture denting Leopards’ title chances.

A win for Ingwe will cement their Top 8 status as well as a push for a higher finish in the Kenyan Premier League.

The only Injury concern in the den is Martin Imbalambala who is racing against time to be fit for the match having been stretched off against Mathare with a hamstring injury while the only long term injury is Anthony Kimani who is set for a comeback next month. 

The match kicks off at 4pm.
