Masika to miss Sony clash
AFC Leopards central defender Erick Masika will miss this weekend's Kenya Premier League (KPL) clash against Sony Sugar at Nyayo National Stadium due to injury.
The 26 year old sustained a hamstring injury during last weekend's tie against Nairobi City Stars which they lost 3-0.
Speaking exclusively with SuperSport.com, Masika said he will rest this weekend following doctor's advice but will be available for their next tie against Sofapaka.
Masika said that despite the loss to City Stars, the team is still on course to finish the first leg league with 32 points.
“We have not lost hope and there is no cause for alarm. Our focus is still intact and we want to achieve our target by finishing the first leg with 32 points which is possible. The team has
enough depth and I know we shall bounce back."
He called upon club fans to be patient, "It was quite disappointing losing to City Stars. It was not our day but that’s football and I urge fans to be happy and continue supporting us.”
Allan Wnaga will also miss the game but fellow striker Jimmy Bagaye will be available for the game after recovering from injury.
Leopards popularly known as "Ingwe" remain at the top on 27 points, one point ahead of second placed Sofapaka who mauled Mathare United 2-0 in a mid-week clash recently.
