AFC Leopard’s 8 matches unbeaten run was brutally brought to an end last weekend when they lost 2-0 to Mathare United at the Bukhungu Stadium. The manner of the loss will have hurt more as Ingwe played the better football only to be undone by two sucker punch goals from Francis Kimanzi’s men.
Casa Mbungo’s side, however, has a golden chance to prove that the Mathare result was just a minor blip when they face off with Zoo Kericho at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on Wednesday afternoon. With the additions of Kenyan Internationals Paul Were and David ‘Cheche’ Ochieng, Leopards have enough quality and experience in their ranks to trouble any topflight team in the country.
Zoo are having a very bad season and are second from bottom on the log with 21 points from 27 games. They have only won once in their last 11 matches, proper relegation form. They have also let in 9 goals in their last 5 matches, a record the likes of Isuza and Paul Were will be salivating on.
AFC Leopards cannot afford any more negative results with the mashemeji derby on the horizon. They have been on a good run of form and performances have vastly improved, the match against Zoo is the type of game they need to win to gain back the confidence that had seen hem go 8 matches unbeaten
