It is now 1440 minutes since Leopards last registered back to back wins in the league. On April 16 and 23 they beat Muhoroni Youth and Thika United for two wins in a row. Robert Matano will be eager to end the inconsistencies and hand Leopards fans the eighth win of the season.
So far the Big Cats have won seven from the last 22 league matches. They have six draws and nine losses. They haven’t done well in home matches this season. Having played 11 matches at home, they have won three, lost five while three matches have ended in draws.
They have conceded 10 goals in their back yard and have scored just five goals. Leopards have registered one win in the last seven home games.
Salim Babu charges will be full of confidence as they visit Leopards. This is after shocking Kenya Premier League champions Tusker FC in the last league tie. However just like Leopards, registering back to back wins has been hard for the Millers. They have clocked 1800 hours (20 matches) since they last registered back to back wins.
The side has six wins, eight draws and nine losses in the entire campaign. Winning on the road has been a tall order for the Awendo based side. In the last 11 away games, they have registered one win, six draws and four losses. SoNy's lone win on the road came on the first day of the league when they beat Sofapaka 1-0. They have scored five and conceded 10.
