Its the third week of the FKF Premier league, and on Wednesday the league giant will be contesting against each other in their first derby match of the season.

As Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards prepare to face off in the first Mashemeji Derby of the 2021/22 Football Kenya Federation Premier League season, we examine Ingwe's squad and identify players who can play important roles against the defending champions.

Even though the game is not a do or die affair, a derby will always be highly competitive, and so we highlight the 3 players we believe can help the Leopards win the derby game.

1. Isaac Kipyegon

The captain is a versatile defensive player who can play any position on the field. AFC Leopards will rely on his experience at the back to keep the Gor Mahia attackers at bay, while his ability to deal with aerial balls will be crucial when Ingwe win or defend against set-pieces.

2. Marvin Nabwire

Has gradually established himself as an important member of the attacking department and will almost certainly be named to the starting XI.

He has speed, like Thiong'o, but his ability to position himself in dangerous areas can end up hurting opponents and giving AFC Leopards a win.

3. Peter Thiong'o

The forward is a quick and smart player capable of breaching even the most resolute defenses, and these characteristics could prove detrimental to Gor Mahia and offer AFC Leopards an advantage in the match.


With a solid backup plan in place from colleagues, the former Kakamega Homeboyz star may be unstoppable.
