(Supersport)AFC Leopards are set to depart for Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Thursday evening ahead of their second leg clash with Defense whom they beat 2-0 in Nairobi over the weekend.
Leopards chairman Allan Kasavuli intimated to supersport.com that despite the effect of high altitude in Ethiopia, they have prepared well for the important clash.
“We have made our bookings for Thursday and we were just waiting for Defense to travel back yesterday (Tuesday) so that we could make all arrangements as they are our host .We dont actually know if the game will be played on Saturday or Sunday but we are expecting to get the information immediately for planning purposes,” Kasavuli told supersport.com.
Meanwhile Leopards coach James Nandwa is buoyant his players can hold on to the important win in Nairobi to qualify for the second round where they will most likely meet South African side SuperSport United who have one foot in the second round after beating Botswana side Gaborone United 2-0 in the first leg.
“The mood is very positive and I don’t think anything is difficult as long as we concentrate in Addis Ababa. It will be tough but I hope we can learn from the first leg match and make amends to avoid giving the Ethiopians room to play the ball around as they proved to be very difficult to manage,” Nandwa told supersport.com.
