Ambani: Tusker, Ulinzi Stars have a great chance

KPL took the decision following a High Court ruling on Thursday that quashed the promotion of the two teams to the top tier

AFC Leopards U-20 coach Boniface Ambani is optimistic Tusker FC and Ulinzi Stars stand a great chance to proceed to the next round of continental assignments.

The Kenyan representatives had mixed results last week, Ulinzi falling against Al Bengazhi by a solitary goal and the brewers playing out to a one all draw against Mauritania's AS Port Louise 2000.

Ambani says with that slim margin, anything is possible and that all sides stand a chance. "Tusker have a good chance though they are playing away; they just need to ensure they get that vital away goal considering they conceded at home. If they get that goal, I am sure they will push for a winner.

"As for Ulinzi Stars, they should try and avoid conceding at all costs,” Ambani told Goal.

"They can get the two goals needed but they will have to work for that and ensure they hit the target early." Tusker is taking part in Caf Champions League while Ulinzi Stars are representing the country in Confederations Cup.
