AFC Leopards will be seeking for revenge when they face Gor Mahia in a league derby on Saturday.

Ingwe is missing up to seven players, with Marvin Nabwire, winger Jaffari Owiti and their top goal scorer Ezekiel Odera set to sit out. Coach Rodolfo Zapata says he already has a game plan against the Green Army.

“No coach would want to miss his top players in a game like this, that is like 70% of the team out. But it is a game we are intending to win. I already have a tactical solution to our problems, itis something that, if applied properly, will give us maximum points.

“I am asking fans to turn out in large numbers and rally behind the team, it will be enough motivation for us to get something from the match,” Zapata told Goal.
