AFC Leopards defender Jackson Saleh says getting four points from Tusker FC is no mean achievement. A 0-0 draw at Kasarani on Sunday August 17, 2014 helped Ingwe stamp its position in the KPL Top 8. Saleh who scored the only goal in the 1-0 win over the brewers in May says the four points will help in buiding the team’s confidence in the long run.
“The draw gives us some bragging rights. Tusker have dominated past matched but a win and no loss to them this season means so much.”
“ We wanted a double but they came out and put us on the backfoot in the second half a lot. I feel that we could have got more from the match as we had the better chances.”
“We intend to continue with the good run and hopefully something good will come up in the long run.”
“We have lost only one match in the second leg and this has shown that we are capable of chasing for top honors .”
Leopards are 8th on the KPL log with 30 points from 22 matches.
Goals from Eugine Ambulwa and Kepha Aswani ensured that Ingwe returned to the summit after Mathare United lost
It was a joy for coach Ivan Minnaert, who is still unbeaten in the league and a delightful moment for Ingwe fans, who have taken the opportunity to taunt their rivals Gor Mahia after Mathare United had earlier fell 2-0 to City Stars at the same venue.
Allan Kateregga and Lamine Diallo started from the bench with Andrew Tololwa returning to the first eleven as Martin Imbalambala faced his former club for the first after quitting last year. Coach Mike Mururi also opted to give Patrick Oboya another chance, after he impressed against Posta Rangers two weeks ago.
Ingwe's slow start and lack of concentration in the match was punished as early as the 9th minute when Charles Momanyi’s low drive evaded all boots to find its way into the net and give the visitors a deserved lead.
The goal was a wakeup call for the thirteen times Kenyan Premier League champions, who reacted with a series of attacks, but they could not hit the target notably in the 19th minute when Andrew Tololwa flashed just wide with only the keeper to beat.
In the 54th minute, Eugine Ambulwa leveled matters through a header, to the joy of the home fans, who until then were nervous especially after wasting clear cut opportunities to score in the first half.
Homeboyz resorted to cautious play to at least gather a point from the otherwise unstoppableIngwe, and it was no surprise when the former Thika United man Kepha Aswani rose highest to score the second for his team and seal the three points.
AFC Leopards are now on top of the table with 14 points one more than second placed Tusker, while Homeboyz remain 10th on seven after six matches. Ingwe will be away to Nairobi City Stars in their next league assignment while Homeboyz will host defending champions Gor Mahia.
Pieter De Jongh has raised concern over the missed chances the team had against Muhoroni Youth on Wednesday.
After the teams played to a goalless draw at Nyayo Stadium, the coach was cautious of blame in his post match remarks.
“ I saw the players give their best to win but also were unlucky on the day,” he said.
“ We created so many chances but never took them to our advantage. I can count as many as twelve chances which we could have utilized to get the points but then we did not.”
“We have to take this chances to get better results. We did not lose but we would be better with a win now.”
The coach also took note of the interference in the training schedule with the Harambee Stars trip as well as league matches in between.
“ The national team interference for the league teams could be felt. The schedule for the friendly affected our preparation. I hope this can also be looked into to avoid club versus country clashes.”
Pieter De Jongh, has asked his team to target victory on Sunday against league leaders Tusker.
After a comfortable 3-1 win at home to KRA, the coach has asked the team to focus more on getting maximum points in each match.
“Each match is important as I have said in the past. We have an opportunity to take all the three points if we have the right mentality,” he said.
“I have asked the players to go to every match seeking victory ."
“Every player will to be up for the selection for the match except those injured. We have a fully fit squad and more options at hand.”
The coach will deliver a full Pre-match press briefing tomorrow , Friday.
