AFC Leopards, Rangers, KCB suffer shock defeats in KPL matches

City Stars Ugandan import Dan Sserenkuma  was  in his sparkling form  grabbing a brace  in the 56th and 70th minute. On both occasion,Leopards Keeper Patrick Matasi was to blame as he left the goal unattended. Boniface Onyango scored in the 63rd minute after he was set through by Francis Thairu to shatter  Leopards hopes of making a  great recovery.

AFC Leopards woes started midway in the first half when dependable defender Eric Masika limped off.He was replaced by Charles Okwemba.  This  was Leopards second defeat of the season after suffering a 2-0 defeat in the hands of Tusker fc  barely afortnight  ago.The loss  comes at a time when  the  Leopards  hierarchy  is rocked  by leadership tussles  and it    remains unclear  if  the  squabbles
have boile d down to the pitch.They have now just picked one point from a possible nine in their last three matches.

Leopards however displayed brilliant football despite the loss.Victor Ochieng,Allan Wanga  and Mike Barasa had good chances to convert especially in the first half but City Stars Keeper Ronnie Kagunzi was equal to the task. Leopards fans took the defeat with true sportsmanship by giving the players  thunderous applause after the final whistle.

Dutch coach  Jan Koop s blamed  the loss  to lack of fighting spirit and the injury of  defense  cornerstone  Eric Masika.
”Masika’s  injury  affected the rythm of the  game more so in defense. Losing is part of the game  ,but we  shall bounce back”said he. In other similar matches, Tusker Fc maintained their winning ways with a  4-2 drubbing over struggling Rangers FC in an early kick off tie staged at the Nyayo National Stadium. Elsewhere,Muhoroni Sugar staged a remarkable fightback to defeat Kenya Commercial Bank(KCB) at Muhoroni grounds to revive their comeback.
