Leopards wary of Ulinzi

NAIROBI, Kenya, July 13 – AFC Leopards coach Chris Makokha admits that his team will have their backs against the wall when they take on Ulinzi FC on Wednesday afternoon.

Makokha told Capital Sport that the soldiers will be out to justify their current lofty position in the Kenya Premier League (KPL) and that Leopards have to be on their guard at City Stadium.

“Ulinzi are second in the table and favourites. In fact we are not just underdogs but big underdogs,” said Makokha.

Despite finishing seventh in the first half of the season, Leopards produced some memorable performances through attacking flair which Makokha wants to see an improvement on.

“We want to be more offensive in the second leg which is why we have recruited more forwards than in any other department,” said the veteran tactician.

James Kombo, Julius Weah, Jeremiah Wanjala and Ricky Ojanga are some of the recruits that have joined the Leopards stable.

Itubu Imbem, Frank Osama, Lawrence Webo and Selenge Mangili who were Leopards’ pillars in the first half of the season are expected to continue in the same vein.

“We’ve not had any friendly matches so we don’t know whether this new players will gel or not. But that we’ll not be an excuse for not playing well,” said Makokha.

“My wish is that we play well in the second leg of the season and that our new players fit in well with the old ones,” he added.

The clash against Ulinzi will major test of Leopards’ title credentials and will be followed up by dates with Mahakama, KCB and another midweek clash against defending champions Sofapaka.
