Former Kenyan international Simeon Mulama has described AFC Leopards coach Robert Matano as ‘unpredictable’ ahead of Ingwe’s match with Mathare United on Wednesday.
Mulama, who played for both sides in his heyday, however, would like Mathare United to pick maximum points against the club he last featured for before trading his boots for the pen in the United States.
“I expect AFC Leopards to put up a strong challenge. They have a very good coach (Matano) because he understands the local league very well. His approach to matches is very unpredictable and that makes his teams very difficult to beat,” Mulama told Mathare United official website.
The two sides played out to a barren draw in the first leg, but Mathare United will be all out for revenge against Ingwe, who raided the ‘Slum Boys’ for Whyvonne Isuza and Robinson Kamura last January.
Mulama won the historic 1998 Moi Golden Cup with Mathare United before crossing over to AFC Leopards. Unlike AFC Leopards, who stormed GOtv Shield final last weekend, Francis Kimanzi side is yet to register a win in their last three fixtures.
“Mathare needs the points more because they are not in a good position in the league. Every point dropped could prove to be costly so it is a must-win match for them," warned Mulama.
The opponents are only separated by two places and four points with Mathare United sitting just a place above relegation while Ingwe is 12th on the log with 24 points. The math will be played at Kasarani.
