All eyes will be on AFC Leopards on Saturday when they take on Nairobi City Stars in a FKF Premier League match at Kasarani Stadium from 4pm.

Leopards have had a tough start to the 2023-2024 season where they have only picked one win, a poor record after nine matches that leaves them only a point above the relegation zone.

In nine matches, Ingwe have lost three matches and registered five draws, a run that saw the club replace Tom Juma with Czech tactician Thomas Trucha who since taking over two weeks ago has one win, one draw and one defeat.

Today they face another struggling side in City Stars.

However, Leopards must be wary of Simba wa Nairobi if their head to head record is anything to go by.

In the last six meetings from 2021, Ingwe has won three matches while City Stars have taken the bragging rights in two. One match ended in a draw.

In fact, the last time the two teams faced off City Stars won the match 2-1 in May this year.

Meanwhile, Leopards have been dealt a blow ahead of this round 10 match after winger Cliff Nyakeya was ruled out of the encounter with a right calf muscle strain.
