The match will pave way for the second clash pitting AFC Leopards
against visiting Kakamega Homeboys from 5.15pm. Mathare United registered an emphatic away 1-0 win over Thika United during their last outing to rise on top of the 16 team’s summit with 11 points, similar to AFC Leopards but they boast of a better goal difference.
“This is the point where we need total concentration.We need to work even harder in the next couple of matches in the first leg, otherwise our happiness will be short-lived. I have told the players to stay calm and not allow to get carried away just because we’re top of the table, there is no room for complacency,” Kimanzi quipped.
The Dutch trained tactician added, “There is always room for improvement. We are not as strong as we want it to be yet, nonetheless, there is notable progress every day. We need to win the game to maintain our ascendancy and that’s our target.”
With Harambee Stars midfielder Eric Johana in form assisted by Harrison Mwendwa, Alfonce Ndonye, David Mwangi, Vincent Okello, Obadiah Ndege and set-piece specialist Noah Abich,nothings seems to be going wrong for the Britam sponsored side.
City Stars sitting 13th in the log with three points have been very impressive under coach John “Bobby” Ogolla despite failing to win any of their matches.They drew 2-2 with Gor Mahia during their last outing where they stretched K’ogalo to the limit.
