Ulinzi Stars forwards will be under pressure to score when they take on AFC Leopards in a Kenyan Premier League match on Sunday.

Ulinzi Stars are yet to shake the net in the last two games, something that coach Dunstan Nyaudo is not taking lightly, as he prepares to take on Ingwe this weekend.

With growing worries about the numerous wasted opportunities by Ulinzi Stars' strikers, Nyaudo laid more emphasis on the same in training sessions this week as he loaded his gun ahead of Ingwe's battle.

Ulinzi played to a barren draw against Mathare United last weekend, just a week after they lost by a solitary goal to Sony Sugar.

The Nakuru Soldiers, however, warmed up for Ingwe’s challenge with a 5-0 win over Nairobi County League side Embakasi All-Stars in a friendly on Thursday.

“We are getting there; the progress of the team generally is good as we prepare for this game but I am happy to see the scoring touch coming back especially from my forward players," Nyaudo told the club's official website.

“We played a lower tier team but they gave us a good practice game and more importantly this will boost the players’ scoring touch.

"I used most of the players I’d want to use over the weekend against AFC Leopards and I can say the progress is good. We still have a few days to prepare and we will continue working hard.”

Ulinzi Stars are seventh on the 18-team league table after accumulating four points, having won once and drew twice.
