FOOTBALL By Washington Onyango | July 17th 2021
Tusker will host AFC Leopards in the top of the table Football Kenya Federation Premier League match to be played at Thika Stadium (today) on Friday.
The brewers are currently leading the race for the 2021 title as they are top of the standings with 51 points, eight points behind third-place Leopards who have a game in hand.
Ingwe will be heading into the match with an upper hand after already defeating the leaders twice this season in the head to head stats.
Ingwe clawed Tusker 2-1 in the first leg of the league last year before edging out Tusker 1-0 in the FKF Cup quarter-finals played earlier last month.
Additionally, Tusker will be heading into the match without their top scorer Henry Meja (11 goals) and Boniface Muchiri who are with Kenya Under-23 at the Cecafa Championship in Ethiopia.
The 2011 champions will also miss the services of captain Hashim Sempala with suspension, injured inform Kevin Okoth, Christopher Oruchum and Luke Namanda.
