Leopards must claw their way back against visitors

07 March 2014, 10:22

Nairobi - Following defeat by South Africa’s Supersport United in the first leg in South Africa last weekend, AFC Leopards are leaving no stone unturned in their quest to progress to the next round of the Confederations Cup.

Leopards suffered a 2-0 setback at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in the reverse fixture.

They have a chance to make amends when they host United on Sunday in an encounter that promises fireworks.

Matsatsantsa a Pitori, as United are affectionately known in South African football circles will be boasting of sharp shooting Senegalese Mame Niang and his twin striking partner Lebogang Manyama to finish off the contest.

Nonetheless, it will be folly of the visitors to undermine Leopards at their own backyard considering that strikers Allan Wanga and Martin Imbalambala are expected to be on top gear to cause commotion in the opponents' danger zone.

The duo will be supplied with clean balls upfront by dependable midfielders Paul Were, Peter Opiyo and Musa Mudde.

While the assignment looks unassailable, AFC Leopards are expected to start the encounter on the offensive with the sole aim to unsettle the visiting South African club.

While Leopards coach James Nandwa is keeping his cards close to his chest, he is aware of the importance of adopting an attacking approach.

United touches down Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on Friday afternoon.
