AFC Leopards came from behind to hand 2008 KPL champions Mathare United the first loss of the season courtesy of a 4-3 win on Saturday afternoon at the Machakos Stadium.
Stand-in coach Dennis Kitambi could not hide his delight after the match lauding his team for rising to the occasion and making the turn around in time. The coach, however, admitted that the first half goals Ingwe conceded were due to the team's failure to follow instructions.
"I think my players did not get the instructions at first hence the early goal because from the word go we were to attack but they decided to sit back and gave our opponents a lot of space and the player had an easy goal," he stated.
The coach, who was on the touchline for the first time since the suspension of coach Robert Matano thanked his players for the effort that saw AFC Leopards secure the hard-fought third win and their second consecutive one after beating SoNy last weekend.
Marvin Omondi's screamer stole the shore towards the end of the match to extend his record to two at Ingwe after joining at the start of the season from Green Commandoes.
