AFC Leopards defender Michael Kibwage says his team was unlucky in the 2-0 defeat against rivals Gor Mahia on Saturday.

The young stopper, who started the match alongside captain Duncan Otieno, enjoyed an impressive show at the back line despite the shock defeat against a 'weak' K’Ogalo team. “We played well and dominated the game. We lost scoring chances plus a penalty for sure that worked against us.

“For sure we had planned to get early goals to secure a win and we tried to work by that plan,” Kibwage told Goal.

The Mukumu High School alumni is however, optimistic that dented Ingwe will finish second on the KPL log and target continental participation by winning FKF Shield Cup at the end of the season. “The league is gone and it’s unfortunate. Now we just focus on second place finish and also win the Shield.”

The young star now 20, has been on the rise since the days of former coach Dennis Kitambi at the Den.
