AFC Leopards will not be relegated to the National Super League, says former club striker Dan Shikanda.

Shikanda, who is also the vice chairman of the AFC Leopards rescue team, a new office formed with the sole purpose of helping a struggling Ingwe get back to their knees, is upbeat that the sleeping giants will wake up, especially in the second leg.

“I can promise you that AFC Leopards will not be relegated,” Shikanda told Goal .

While Shikanda has admitted that the team is firing badly at the moment, though he remained hopeful that things will get better.

Shikanda also clarified that the ‘Rescue Team’ did not take over the leadership of the club. “I'm not an official of AFC Leopards. We just came to help the team get back to winning ways and possibly avoid relegation.”

AFC Leopards are currently 15th, just a place above the relegation zone having lost three consecutive games. Ingwe will face Gor Mahia on Saturday.
