Ingwe, who will take on National Super League side Vihiga United in the second semi-final, beat Thika United 2-0 in the mid-week

AFC Leopards and Kariobangi Sharks warmed up for the weekend’s GOtv Shield semi-final with a win and a draw respectively.

Ingwe, who will take on National Super League side Vihiga United in the second semi-final, beat Thika United 2-0 in the mid-week Kenyan Premier League match, a timely morale booster ahead of the crunch match with the courageous lower division side.

Unlike AFC Leopards whose main concern will be how to survive relegation, Vihiga United are on a steady march to the top tier league next year having opened a five-point lead between them and second placed, Nairobi Stima; another prime candidate for promotion to the KPL league in 2018.

Kariobangi Sharks, on the other hand, settled for a two-all draw with Posta Rangers with Masoud Juma grabbing a brace.

Sharks will square it out with premier league counterparts Sony Sugar at Afraha Stadium.

Sharks and Sony will take to the pitch first at noon with AFC Leopards welcoming Vihiga at 2.30 pm.
