Kariobangi Sharks head coach William Muluya has tipped his charges to get positive result when they collide with football powerhouse AFC Leopards in a league match this afternoon at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

Sharks have won all their last three matches against Sofapaka, Thika United and Nakumatt FC and the tactician hopes to replicate the feat at Kenyatta Stadium when he come face -to -face with the troubled Ingwe.

In the run up to this match, Leopards have had their fair share of problems with the playing unit threatening to down tools over unpaid allowances and Muluya is hopeful that his charges can make the most of the chance to reap maximum points.

Sharks sit sixth on the KPL table on 43 points and victory will haul their points tally to 46, five shy of Ingwe who are third on the log.

However, should Ingwe claw the sharks, they’ll stretch their points advantage to 54, consolidating their third spot as they bid to claim a runner-sup slot in the league.

Bandari are second on 55 points behind champions Gor Mahia at 71.

Leopards’ players failed to have a routine training yesterday in the wake of a go-slow demanding for their allowances but team manager Gilbert Selebwa is putting up a brave face.

“Football is a psychological game and so if one is affected he cannot function to his level best, though today they appear fresh after being assured by the executive that they will be paid before the end of the week,”Selebwa added.

The Rodolfo Zapata side defeated Posta Rangers 2-1 to cut the gap between them and the second placed Bandari FC to four

Purring confidence, Sharks are equally bullish ahead of the fixture that promises to be explosive.

“We have what it takes to collect all the three points from Leopards as we aim to be consistent,”Muluya said.

“My players have had successful training and they are confident,”Muluya added.

Muluya will be aiming to extend his team’s recent good run even as they chase for a top five finish

“The boys are motivated and ready and what remains for them is to execute what they have been taught in the training.

“We have a top five finish target and that should also be another catalyst to motivate our players,”said Muluya.
