Zapata says the midfielder is always vital for his team, but believes other players will step up

AFC Leopards head coach Rodolfo Zapata has admitted his team will miss Whyvonne Isuza this weekend in the Kenyan Premier League outing.

The creative midfielder was sent off against Mathare United last weekend after receiving two yellow cards in Ingwe's 2-1 win.

Zapata says the midfielder is always vital for his team, but believes other players will step up and cover him well.

"Isuza is a valuable player for us, he gives us another dimension on the pitch and can score goals as well.

We are going to miss him for sure; however, we have players who can fill the void left. Seda, Ezekiel is one of those. Time for him to step up and show what he has for us.

"Nakumatt is a good team, but I am sure we will get something from the match if we play as planned."

The two teams played to a 2-2 draw in the first leg.
