The last time Ingwe won against the mailmen was way back in 2012 and majority of the last six matches have ended in draws

AFC Leopards will take on Posta Rangers minus seven key players on Saturday.

Ingwe head coach Rodolfo Zapata has confirmed that Dennis Sikhayi, Robinson Kamura, Abdallah Salim and Moses Mburu are all injured as well as Jafari Owiti, Marvin Nabwire and Saad Musa.

However, Zapata is hopeful of a good outing against Posta Rangers in a Kenyan Premier League outing. The last time Ingwe won against the mailmen was way back in 2012 and majority of the last six matches have ended in draws.

Speaking ahead of the game, the Argentine is still targeting a top two finish by the end of the season. “We have lost two matches in a row, and we want to ensure we win our next game which is against Posta Rangers.

"Pressure to win is always there and we have to satisfy that demand by the fans. Despite missing some players as well because of injuries, we are going to fight for maximum points.

“A game like this is tactically won, if we get our tactics right it will even be easier and I believe my players will do that,” Zapata told Goal.

The first leg between the two teams ended in a one all draw.

Saturday fixtures: Chemelil Sugar vs Mathare United (Chemelil Sports Complex) Nakumatt FC vs Kariobangi Sharks (Camp Toyoyo) and AFC Leopards vs Posta Rangers (Machakos).

Sunday fixtures: Thika United vs Gor Mahia (Thika), Kakamega Homeboyz vs Nzoia Sugar (Bukhungu), Vihiga United vs Sony Sugar (Mumias), Ulinzi Stars vs Wazito (Green Stadium), Bandari vs Zoo (Green Stadium).
