Coach buoyant ahead of Leopards clash

Sofapaka coach Salim Ali is confident of victory when they take on AFC Leopards in a mouth watering clash on Wednesday evening live on SuperSport 9East.

The league leaders are on 29 points, three ahead of Leopards and a win will see them end the first leg top of the log.

Ali believes that the match will tense and closely fought, "Our match against AFC Leopards will be very tough with alot of pressure but I believe we have the confidence and we want to maintain our perfect run that we have had this season and finish."

Sofapaka has most of its key players fit with Osborne Monday and Simon Mburu the only absentees.

"All my players are key to our good performances so far and I believe we have all it takes to beat AFC Leopards in what I suppose will be an exciting clash that everyone must watch," a confident Ali told SuperSport.com.

The record between the two is fairly even with the 2009 champions having won three while Leopards have won twice in their last six meetings.
