Boost for AFC Leopards as key player returns

The short-term impact of the ruling is that mid-table teams like AFC Leopards will have to tighten their belts to avoid being sucked into NSL

AFC Leopards have received a major boost after dependable defender Dennis Sikhai returned to training ahead of Sunday's ‘Mashemeji’ derby.

The player has missed four matches after suffering an injury, but the club has confirmed on their facebook page that the former Western Stima man is back in training for the match against Gor Mahia.

"We are happy to announce that Dennis Sikhayi is back to training after a 3-weeks injury lay off. He sustained the injury in our match against Chemilil Sugar FC on 9th April. Welcome back 'Sky'."

A win for AFC Leopards might see the club move to the top three depending on the outcome of other matches.
