Rodolfo Zapata is impressed with the baby steps being made by AFC Leopards players as the Argentine prepares for the 2018/2019 Kenyan Premier League season with Ingwe.

AFC Leopards revives their hopes of a top-two finish following a 2-1 victory over Posta Rangers on Saturday.

Despite Ingwe surrendering the lead at one point, after Alex Orotomal's opening goal in the 14th minute; Zapata was impressed by the composure exhibited by his charges.

“We stuck to our guns to play offensive football because that is my philosophy. Like I said before, we are a team for next season,” the former Gaborone United coach said in a post-match interview.

Gerson Likonoh hit a consolation for Rangers, but his effort was not enough to cancel out Orotomal’s brace.
