After beating Mathare United and preparing to face Bandari in the FKF Premier League, AFC leopards tactician Patrick Aussems has now blamed his youthful squad’s lack of firepower upfront.

According to Aussems, this has contributed to the mixed results this season.
Despite all, the Belgian has promised to strengthen his attack ahead of the weekend encounter at Mbaraki Sports Club. AFC Leopards has scored eight goals against 10 from nine matches

“We create so many chances, but we lack the right mentality. We must find the net in the coming matches,” said Aussems.

Speaking after the 2-1 win over Mathare, Aussems said the absence of the injured Tedian Esilaba in the heart of the defence has also seen the team concede easy goals, adding that the return of South Sudan international midfielder Saad Musa will boost the midfield.

The 57-year-old tactician said Leopards has over 10 young players from the academy who are yet to make their senior team debut in the league. They remain unregistered by FKF even after impressing in the pre-season.

He maintained that there is still a lot to play for, with only 10 rounds into the new season.
“Mathare are rooted at the bottom, but you know it’s never easy when you play a team fighting relegation. They gave everything and made us suffer in the second half,” he said.

Leopards are 10 points behind leaders Nzoia Sugar after nine matches.
