AFC Leopards overall captain Robinson Kamura has urged fans to rally behind the team saying that the mood in the camp is upbeat ahead of a Kenya Premier League clash against Nzoia Sugar FC on Saturday afternoon.
“We appreciate our fans’ support and we ask them to keep the faith and continue supporting the team we all love. Fans really motivate us during our matches,” he told www.afcleopards.co.ke.
Kamura also acknowledged the club’s tough financial state and pointed out that fans’ support and commitment can help remedy the situation.
“I believe with fans’ support things will be a bit easier as we wait for a sponsor to come on board. Let them keep on supporting the team as we’re in a very bad state at the moment,” he added.
On Saturday’s game, he said that the camp is brimming with confidence ahead of the tie against a potential banana skin.
“Our last game against Kisumu All Stars brought back our confidence. We’re taking each game at a time this season. We are looking forward to another win so that we close the gap with the log leaders.”
Head coach Casa Mbungo has included Isaac Kipyegon in the 18-man travelling squad to Mumias.
Conspicuously missing is red hot striker John Makwatta and the returning Washington Munene. The team’s medical team has indicated that the pair is down with various illness.
We play Nzoia Sugar at Mumias Sugar Sports Complex on Saturday at 2.00pm.
