KPL MATCH PREVIEW: AFC LEOPARDS vs. MUHORONI YOUTH

By Samuel Gacharira,

There is no doubt that the Logarusic effect is already being felt at the den if their recent turn around in fortunes is anything to go by. The 5-1 home drubbing of Sony Sugar followed by the hard fought 2-1 victory over Bandari in Mombasa has seen them rise to position 5 on the log.

Despite the off pitch financial issues that allegedly saw them held hostage at a coast hotel after their midweek fixture due to unpaid bills head coach Zdravko Logarusic is still adamant that they can challenge for this year’s title.

However he is aware that winning the title is not all about beating the big boys but also the so called minnows. Muhoroni Youth are placed 13th on the league standings but that does not mean they will be push overs come Saturday.

In a similar fixture last season, they held the favorites to a barren draw in the process bagging 4 points from Ingwe thanks to a labored 1-0 win in the reverse fixture, Abbas Akinyemi netting the winner.

Things have not gone to plan for Francis Baraza this season thanks to a porous defense that has conceded 18 times after only 11 rounds. Only Nakuru All Stars and KCB have conceded more so far.

Victory on the road has been elusive for the sugar men but that will be the primary objective for them well aware that three points will steer them away from the relegation zone.

The match will kick off at exactly 1545hrs EAT at the Nyayo National Stadium this Saturday.
