Match Preview

Both teams come into the match targeting a win to help them meet their objectives at the end of the season. With four matches to go, AFC Leopards are third on 48 points and a win will put them in a good position to go second on the log if Bandari slip.

Having lost back to back matches against Gor Mahia and Wazito respectively, the hosts need to bounce back soonest. It has not been easy for the mailmen this season especially in defense; having conceded thirty-one goals and the Sammy 'Pamzo' Omollo led side are odds on to concede again.

However, coach Rodolfo Zapata is hopeful of a good outing against Posta Rangers. “We have lost two matches in a row, and we want to ensure we win our next game which is against Posta Rangers.

"Pressure to win is always there and we have to satisfy that demand by the fans. Despite missing some players as well because of injuries, we are going to fight for maximum points.

“A game like this is tactically won, if we get our tactics right it will even be easier and I believe my players will do that,” Zapata told Goal.

However, they will take heart from their performance against AFC Leopards, having lost just once in seven outings, a defeat that came about six years ago.
