Wazito v AFC Leopards
Ingwe will open a seven-point gap between them and third placed Sofapaka if they manage to get maximum points on Wednesday

Players like Martin Musalia and Jackson Saleh revived their names while at AFC Leopards and their experience is vital for Wazito as they aim to survive the chop.

The promoted side has found it tough especially in the second half of the season after losing most of its best players to rival teams. For Leopards, things are quite good on and off the pitch, as it seems currently.

Their good run of winning five games in a row was unfortunately ended by bitter rivals Gor Mahia last weekend in the Mashemeji Derby after going down 2-0. Ingwe are still hopeful of a top three finish by the end of the season.
