AFC Leopards will face relegated Mount Kenya United without the services of their three influential players.

Goal has learned that David Ochieng, Salim Abdalla, and Isaac Kipyegon will all miss Thursday's Kenyan Premier League (KPL) match against the Melis Medo led side at Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos. 

Club's Football Operations Manager Tom Juma has confirmed the news.

“Ochieng injured his knee against Gor Mahia, so he is out. We have Salim who injured his toe and Kipyegon is diagnosed with Malaria and we will not have them,” Juma told Goal.

“It is a blow to us but we have players who can effectively fill their roles, we just want to win against Mount Kenya.”

Ingwe have lost their last two games against KCB and Gor Mahia respectively and will be aiming at finishing the season on a high.

Their three remaining matches are against Mount Kenya, Tusker and Western Stima.
