Leopards unfazed by unpredictable Singida

AFC Leopards captain Robison Kamura expects nothing short of a win in their SportPesa Super Cup match against Singida United of Tanzania at Afraha Stadium in Nakuru today.

Leopards come into the match as favourites, having eliminated the same opponents 5-4 on post-match penalties at the quarter-final stage last year after a 1-1 draw in regulation time.

That has given Ingwe belief that they can down Singida once more and the team is also booted by their 2-1 win over Shabana FC during their SportPesa Shield Cup on Saturday.

Kamura says the squad is experienced, having retained many of the players who helped them reach the finals last year last year where they were beaten 3-0 by Gor Mahia.

“We have come to compete and reach the finals. I believe we have a formidable squad that has got all the tools of winning this tournament and face Everton in their own backyard for the first time in history,” said Kamura.

Recently-appointed Leopards coach Rodolfo Zapata is also promising positive results. He said: “We are not worried about our opponents and a win is what we are looking for. All the players are in great shape apart from the lead striker Ezekiel Odera who is out injured. Nonetheless, I believe the squad has got quality strikers who can lead us to victory.”

His opposite number Hemed Morocco is also feeling little pressure despite jetting into the country on Sunday evening and he is looking forward to a great outing, having taken over from Dutchman Hans Van Der Pluijm who joined Azam FC.
