Ingwe will be without captain Duncan Otieno and defender Michael Kibwage, who are both in India with Harambee Stars

AFC Leopards has set eyes on the Goodison Park trip before Singida United fixture at Afraha Stadium.

According to the club's Secretary General Oscar Igaida, Ingwe is not worried by the current competition at the Super Cup tournament that is entering day three in Nakuru on Tuesday.

“Our main target is to play Everton in July. We are the team that fits the trip since we have many young players that can be scouted there.”

Igaida further revealed that his charges are out on a revenge mission should they meet Kenyan league champions Gor Mahia in the semis after losing 3-0 in the inaugural tournament in Dar last summer.

AFC Leopards, 12-time league winners in Kenya, will be seeking for a win against hard fighting Singida United from Tanzania on Tuesday in Nakuru.

“We are more than ready for the match. The players are in good condition after the weekend win against Shabana. The only problem is that six of our key players are fasting but we shall take care of that.

“We are also delighted with the return of Whyvonne Isuza who missed the match against Shabana.”

However, Ingwe will be without captain Duncan Otieno and young defender Michael Kibwage, who are both in India with Harambee Stars. The Tanzanian outfit finished fifth in just concluded local league with 44 points, having been promoted to the top tier league.

The winner between Ingwe and Singida will play Gor Mahia in the semis on Friday.
