Leopards’ GOtv Shield match against Bidco pushed to next week

The GOtv round of 16 clash pitting AFC Leopards and Bidco United earlier scheduled for this weekend has been postponed to July 26 following an appeal by the former giants.
According to Leopards chairman Dan Mule, they are without three of their senior players, who jetted out of the country for Spain Tour with KPL All Stars.
After securing a spot in the round of 16 courtesy of their 2-0 win over National Super League side, Nairobi Stima, the 2013 champions set a date with Bidco United who sunk Rainforest by a similar margin to settle for the must win clash in the round of 16.
Mule said their key players—Vincent Oburu, Robinson Kamura and Victor Majid—are with the KPL All Stars team in Spain. “As you are aware Oburu, Kamura and Majid left for Spain and they are strong pillars in our squad. They are reliable members of the squad whose contribution is key and their absence would have impacted negatively if the match wasn’t postponed. The game will be played on July 26th at Thika Municipal Stadium and we hope all our players will be ready.”
He added: “The three mean a lot to Leopards. Fast-rising Oburu is the joint top scorer in the tournament with five goals; Kamura dictates the back four with Majid filling in for the departed skipper Bernard Mang’oli left. Their contribution has been phenomenal thus far, catching the attention of the KPL All Stars selection panelist and earning call ups with the national team.”
The game will also see Leopards’ head coach Robert Matano face his former immediate employers Bidco, where he served before decamping to the den.
