Squads & Team News
John Kamau was substituted last weekend in the 1-0 defeat to Nzoia Sugar. It is not yet clear whether he will be involved against Ingwe.
Probable XI for Tusker: Emery, Ambunya, Wandera, Wahome, Tangauzi, Nzuki, Macharia, Muchiri, Juma, Amini and Otieno.
This match comes too early for Ugandan Baker Lukooya, who is nursing a knee injury. He will be available for selection in the next two weeks.
However, Ingwe Football Operations Manager Tom Juma has assured the rest of the squad that featured in the 1-0 win against Sony Sugar is available.
Probable XI for AFC Leopards: Adira, Sikhayi, Kipyegon, Orochum, Salim, Kamura, Oburu, Isuza, Wayi, Mukangula and Owiti.
AFC Leopards' 1-0 result against Sony Sugar was the team's first win after six games. They are facing the brewers, who have beaten them thirteen times in their last twenty league meetings, drawn five times and lost twice meaning it will not be an easy outing.
Ingwe's last win against Tusker came in August, 2017 when they won by a solitary goal. Last season, they conceded eight goals in both legs, and scored just two in return.
Looking at the past ten years, the brewers have scored thirty five goals against Ingwe, and conceded just 14. The hosts are currently placed fifth on the log with twenty five points after winning seven games, drawn four and lost as many.
Ingwe are 16th on the log after managing to win only three matches.
