Changes in AFC Leopards' starting line up
AFC Leopards has made a few changes to its starting line up to face off a determined Western Stima side in a Western Province City derby slated for 7:00PM on Thursday at the Nyayo stadium.
Captain Nicholas Muyoti who was uninspirational last weekend against Gor Mahia will start on the bench alongside John Amboko and Francis Chinjili.
With Stima aware of the best way to curb Chinjili, AFC Leopards’ head coach Jans Koops has opted to start him on the bench. At the center pitch Charles Okwemba and Oscar Kadenge will command the spraying of balls to the forward liners including Mike Baraza and Jimmy Bageya.
This is a must win match for AFC Leopards that is precariously placed 12th on the league table with 19 points from 17 matches.
The team will be under a new technical management on Thursday after the dismissal of Nick Yakhama.Mickey Weche will for the first time in many years get back a spot on the team’s bench as the assistant coach just hours after he was unveiled by the team’s executive on Wednesday.
