City Stars target Leopards scalp



Tenth-placed Nairobi City Stars take on a resurgent AFC Leopards on Friday at Nyayo National Stadium.

Team Manager Lawrence Njenga has exuded confidence ahead of the match, saying that the team will go for a straight victory against the second-placed Ingwe.

“We defeated them fair and square in the first leg match and will prove to them that it wasn’t a stroke of luck,” he said.

“They are second-placed on the table but that does not scare us at all. The fact that we defeated them in the first leg gives us confidence. We are going for nothing less than a victory.”

City Stars beat AFC Leopards 3-0 in the first leg match played on 5 May at Nyayo and Njenga believes AFC will be under pressure to avenge the defeat.

“The team (City Stars) has been training well and we have no major injury concerns ahead of the game. All the players are okay and are looking forward to the game,” he continued.

“AFC Leopards want to take vengeance since we defeated them in the first leg and therefore will be playing under pressure.”

Dan Serunkuma was instrumental in City Stars’ win against AFC Leopards, as he scored a brace, but has since joined Gor Mahia.

“Serunkuma was in fine form that day, he is no longer with us but I believe the players I have will be up to the task,” he concluded.
