Zapata: We fought like Leopards against Sofapaka

AFC Leopards had to dig deep to secure a slim 1-0 win over Sofapaka on Wednesday 13 June and head coach Rodolfo Zapata, was impressed with his players perseverance in the game comparing  it to how a leopard maintains patience while in the hunt.

After a string of missed chances from both sides, it was Ingwe who would deal the decisive blow late in the match when winger Brian Marita scored a spectacular strike, lobbing from distance Mathias Kigonya who had strayed off his line.

Unbeaten

Zapata praised his charges afterwards as the win sees him maintain his unbeaten start since taking over from Dennis Kitambi in April. He has overseen five matches winning two and drawing three.

After the game the Argentine said, "We are unbeaten since I took over the team. We deserved the win tonight because we kept believing we could take all three points.

"We played beautiful football and created chances. It was hard for the boys but they fought like leopards knowing that something was going to happen."

Ingwe will next take on Chemelil Sugar on Saturday 16 June at the same ground.
