Six handed debuts as AFC Leopards pick team to face Homeboyz

Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants AFC Leopards will kick off their 2019/20 league campaign with a match against Kakamega Homeboyz on Sunday 1 September and head coach Cassa Ander Mbungo has picked his men for the clash at Bukhungu Stadium.

The Rwandan coach has given starts to six newly signed players as he hopes to flourish against a team that has given them a lot of headaches in the past few meetings.


Goalkeeper Benjamin Ochan, defenders Collins Shivachi and Robert Mudenyu, midfielders Vincent Habamahoro, Tresor Ndikumana and Ismaila Diara are all set to start.

Meanwhile, Hansel Ochieng and Austin Ochieng will be seeking to make their debuts later on, after being named on the bench.

Youngster Vincent Oburu will lead the striking force and he will have the needed support from Whyvonne Isuza.
