AFC Leopards beat Nzoia Sugar on Saturday

AFC Leopards head coach Stewart Hall says he knew how to tame Nzoia Sugar last weekend.

The two teams met in the Kenyan Premier League for the first time in more than a decade ago and it was AFC Leopards who came from a goal down to claim maximum points. Hall says the team resorted to playing a fast game, and with that kind of energy, his team had to be cautious.

Nzoia Sugar confident despite AFC Leopards defeat

"They were pressing in an electrifying pace and we had to release the ball early and ensure we get it out of the danger zone. The way they played in the first half, I knew they will slow down in the second half, and that is what happened and we managed to get the goals.

"They are a good side and they played well, they will pose a problem against all teams," he told Goal.

AFC Leopards have six points from two matches played.
