Kenyan Premier League giants, AFC Leopards have found themselves in a bad situation as they stare at relegation.
Nine-time Kenyan champions are just three places and the same number of points away from the danger zone.
Ingwe are currently 12th on the log with 25 points, only three places and four points more than Mathare United and Muhoroni Youth, who occupy the last two positions with 22 and 19 points respectively.
A toothless Leopard were starved by Sofapaka, who rubbed salt to the freshly opened blistered spots of Ingwe with a 2-0 win at Narok Stadium on Sunday.
AFC Leopards' troubles may be compounded further should a Court of Appeal reinstate Nakumatt and Zoo Kericho FC to the league in Wednesday’s ruling.
While AFC Leopards finds themselves struggling to stay afloat, their perennial rivals, Gor Mahia are cruising the high tides of Kenyan Premier League waters with 51 points, eight better than second-placed Kakamega Homeboyz.
Sofapaka, Ulinzi Stars and Posta Rangers complete the five positions while defending champions, Tusker are eighth with 33 points.
