AFC Leopards to miss key players for KCB tie
AFC leopards will miss the services of Allan Wanga and Erick Masika when they face bankers KCB at the Nyayo National Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Wanga who is on loan from Vietnamese side HAGL is nursing a knee injury while Masika is down with Malaria.
“Of course we are not happy that we will miss two key players in our team but sometimes it happens and you are forced to play without key players,” Coach Jan Koops told Michezoafrika.com.
“We signed at least two very good players in each position and I am confident that the players who will replace the injured two will do an equally good job. It is their opportunity to cement a starting role and so it might be a blessing in disguise,” Koops adds.
AFC Leopards will be welcoming the KCB at their Nyayo Stadium fortress in a match they will be keen win and cement their lead at the top. They won their first-leg match against the Bankers 2-1 with Mike Barasa grabbing a spectacular brace while Ezekiel Odera pulled one back for the bankers.
