AFC Leopards will continue their chase for a first league win in a high-stakes clash against Nzoia Sugar FC.
After playing seven matches without a single win, AFC Leopards are gearing up for a crucial showdown against Nzoia Sugar FC on Sunday afternoon at the Sudi Stadium.
The once-vibrant buzz surrounding Tomas Trucha's return for a second spell as the head coach quickly fizzled out following Ingwe's 1-0 loss to Bandari last weekend, marking their third defeat of the season.

A rotated Gor Mahia squad just did not have enough to overcome Bidco United in an encounter that saw both teams evenly test each other out.
This infusion of fresh talent has come with its challenges, as the team welcomed a whopping 15 new players.
Ingwe coach Trucha remains optimistic about their integration, stating, "All the players are trying their best to absorb all the new information and instructions in the shortest time possible. Every player used in the Bandari match fought for the team, and players who sat on the bench gave full support."
On the other side of the pitch, Nzoia Sugar is grappling with its own set of woes. A mass exodus during the transfer window forced them to virtually rebuild their squad, resulting in a rocky start to the season.
The Sugar Millers have managed only one victory, two draws, and have suffered four losses so far.

Memories of their last meeting on May 7th last season, where Leopards secured a 1-0 victory in Nairobi, may provide a glimmer of hope and motivation for the struggling Ingwe side.
