Leopards host Mathare United



Tusker Premier League title hopefuls AFC Leopards welcome Mathare United on Saturday in what is expected to be an explosive league match at Mumias Sports Complex.

Both teams are coming off wins, but harbor different ambitions. Leopards are chasing domestic glory, while Mathare aim to book a spot at next term’s Top Eight tournament.

With two matches to go before the end of the 2012 season, the three points means a lot for the two teams.

A win for Leopards will see them leapfrog Gor Mahia at the top, even if only temporarily, while a victory for Mathare will keep their Top Eight hopes alive.

Going into the match, AFC are favorites as they have won their last two competitive meetings [both 2-0, League and Cup tie] with Mathare. The visitors, however, can draw encouragement from an impressive 11-game unbeaten run in the league.

Probable line-ups:

AFC: Patrick Matasi (GK), Edwin Wafula, Eric Masika, Jonas Nahimana, Abbas Kiwalaabye, Martin Imbalambala (Cpt), Bernard Mang’oli, Paul Were, Charles Okwemba, Mike Barasa, Victor Ochieng’.

Subs: Barnabas Tiema (GK), Augustine Etemesi, Idrissa Rajab, Amon Muchiri, Floribert Tambwe, Jimmy Bagaye, Allan Wanga.

Mathare: Martin Musalia (GK), Lloyd Wahome , Anthony Kimani (Cpt), Athman Buki, John Odhiambo, Tyrus Omondi, Dennis Nzomo, Andrew Tololwa, Joseph Mwangi, Francis Ouma, Jesse Were.

Subs: Robert Mboya (GK), Kevin Omondi, Vincent Okello, Kenneth Kimani, Daniel Mwaura, Kevin Odongo, Elvis Nandwa.
