Its Another Draw

From The Official Website

AFC Leopards have themselves to blame for failing to register their first win against Sher Karuturi in the weekend's goalless draw at Naivasha.

The much improved Leopards outplayed the hosts pinning them in their own half for the better part of the match only for the Harambee Stars trailist Sebastian Muchera to squander three clear chances that would have assured Kenya's most supported club the first win of the season.

Ingwe's defence was calmer than the previous line ups, thanks to the coaches replacement of goal keeper Charles Onyango and sweeper Allan Ogal with Teddy Okumba and Indimuli respectively. Kudos specifically goes to the new goalkeeper Teddy who did a wonderful job between the posts in his first assignment with the club.

At the upfront, Dennis Mukaisi and Sebastian Muchera combined well terrorising the shaky Sher's defence but were not lucky to find the back of the net.

Leopards massive and passionate fanbase did not disappoint as hundreds of replica shirt and cap wearing fans trooped the Naivasha ground to cheer their favourite team.

Several vehicles from Nairobi transported members of AFC travelling club who follow the club to all away matches.

At the terraces, one could be forgiven to think that AFC was playing at home as the ground was awash with AFC! AFC chants from the boasterous Ingwe loyalists who intimidated the Sher supporters whose voices could not be heard beyond their noses.

AFC now has three points from six concluded matches and one disputed one and will be playing against KCB at home on Saturday 11th April at 3PM at Coca Cola Stadium.
