Ingwe captain Duncan Otieno says his side has to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Gor Mahia on Sunday

AFC Leopards will take on Mwatate United in FKF Shield Cup at Kasarani Stadium on Wednesday.

Ingwe will come into the match as favorites owing to their experience, as compared to the coastal-based side that received a walk over following Ushuru's failure to honor the match.

Speaking to Goal ahead of the encounter, Ingwe captain Duncan Otieno says his side has to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Gor Mahia last weekend.

“This is the time to put aside our disappointment after losing last weekend, and at least get a win in this tournament and progress to the quarter finals. It is not going to be easy just because we are playing an 'unknown side', we have seen major upsets in the past and we do not want to experience the same.

“We always want to win, we always want to do better but sometimes things do happen, however we are still aiming at defending our title.”

Tusker, Kariobangi Sharks, Ulinzi and Sofapaka are so far the only league sides in the quarter-finals.
