Leopards line up Tusker friendly



AFC Leopards have lined up a high-profile friendly match against Kenyan Premier League champions Tusker as part of their preparations for the new season.

Leopards, who were locked out of the inaugural Kenya Power Charity Cup, will take on the Brewers on February 3 at Nyayo National Stadium- a day after the finals of the Charity Cup.

The Tusker friendly was an alternative plan for Leopards, who were scheduled to travel to Tanzania in the course of the week but cancelled the trip after the Vodacom Premier League resumed earlier than expected.

“We will not travel to Tanzania as earlier planned, instead we will play against Tusker in a friendly match next Sunday at Nyayo,” said Ingwe assistant coach Tom Olaba.

“We were to travel to Tanzania this week, but since their league commenced yesterday we have cancelled the trip as our intended opponents will be busy playing the league matches.

“But it does not mean that our pre-season preparations have stopped. We requested Tusker for a training match and they have accepted. It is a good friendly for both teams. We will be preparing for league, while Tusker will be gauging themselves ahead of the continental competition.”

Leopards have enjoyed a productive pre-season to date, winning three warm-up matches against Local Government, Azam and Kariobangi Sharks.
