Ingwe will be seeking to go past their bogey side when both sides resume the second leg of Kenyan Premier League


Chemelil Sugar has always been a tricky opposition for AFC Leopards and when the teams met during the first leg, Ingwe came from behind to level matters.

The sugarmillers were the first to take the lead in the 45th minute with Ingwe making things even in the 62nd minute courtesy of Allan Kateregga. Coincidentally, both teams have 17 points, but it is Ingwe that is in the eleventh position, a place higher than their rivals, thanks to goals difference.

The visitors were docked three points following hooliganism acts by their fans when they played hosts to Ulinzi Stars at Mumias Complex, a match which ended prematurely.

AFC Leopards have scored fifteen goals and conceded sixteen as compared to their opponents, who have scored just eight and conceded twelve. An interesting part of this encounter is that Chemelil started the season on a low note but finished on top form, the opposite of what happened at the Den.


Chemelil Sugar: After the departure of Jairus Adira, Samuel Odhiambo has the opportunity of showing what he is made off. The best way to do that shall be against AFC Leopards, and stopping them will be a plus for him.

Another player to watch out for is veteran Hillary Echesa he is one of the best on his day and his two goals are not by luck. He is a dangerous player who cannot be assumed.

AFC Leopards: Ian Otieno was the star man when AFC Leopards knocked out Mumbi Nationale from GOtv Shield. He stopped three penalties and made vital saves to keep Ingwe in the competition and if he replicates the form, then Chemelil will struggle to score.

Bernard Mang’oli has returned to the side, and the first thing he will want to do is to ensure his presence is felt by the fans as well as the opponents. As a skipper, he will definitely want to lead by example.

Probable lineup: AFC Leopards: Ian Otieno, Cresten Mwanzo, Charles Bruno, Jackson Saleh, Edwin Wafula, Eugene Ambulwa, Harun Nyakha, Bernard Mang’oli, John Ndirangu, Paul Kiongera, Kepha Aswani.
