AFC Leopards coach Ivan Minnaert has tipped his squad to maintain its winning ways in the SportPesa Kenyan Premier League.

Following completion of the international break at the weekend, Ingwe, who are joint league leaders with Mathare United on 11 points after five rounds of matches, face Kakamega Homeboyz in a league match at the Nyayo Stadium on Wednesday evening. 

This is one of the seven league matches lined up across the country on the same day.

Minnaert has been credited with Leopards’ successful run in the league so far, having won two games and drawn one of his three competitive matches at the helm.
“Our target against Homeboyz is as always, which is perform better and clinch the win. The league might have been on recess, but this gave us an advantage to work and improve on several aspects of our game,” coach Minnaert told Nairobi News.

STRONG ATTACK

Against eighth placed Homeboyz, the Minnaert will rely on a strong looking attack comprising Kepha Aswani and Lamine Diallo.

Meanwhile, Ugandan import Allan Kateregga will influence the game from an attacking midfield position with Harambee Stars trialist Lucas Indeche manning the goal.

In other fixtures tomorrow, newly promoted Rangers FC will host Sony Sugar at Ruaraka as Chemelil meet Tusker in Awasi.

Elsewhere, Bandari and Ulinzi Stars will face off at the Coast, Muhoroni will host Ushuru, while Western Stima will lock horns with an inconsistent Sofapaka in Kisumu County.
