AFC Leopards fell to Kariobangi Sharks 3-1 on Tuesday in a league outing staged at Kenyatta Stadium, Machakos.
Ingwe came into the match as favorites but ended up dropping important points that could have helped them move closer to Bandari on second place.
Coach Rodolfo Zapata has explained to Goal the main reason why his charges fell to Sharks.
"Our main undoing was in attack, I felt we created many chances but we did not take them. They made their own and utilized them, that made the difference at the end of the day.
"With the FKF Shield coming, we really need to work on that and hope to get a win to take us to the finals."
Ingwe, who are the Shield defending Champions, will play Sofapaka with Ulinzi Stars facing Kariobangi Sharks.
