AFC Leopards lost their second successive game of the season after going 2-1 down to Bandari FC in Mombasa on Sunday 24 October 2021.
Bandari had taken a 21st-minute lead through Umaru Kasumba but Leopards, who had arrived in Mombasa on match day, restored matters through a penalty from captain Isaac Kipyegon. William Wadri had other ideas though as he regained the host’s lead in the dying minutes of the first half.

John Mwangi was to come with the winner 12 minutes from time to hand the slum boys their second win of the season to see the team rise to 8th.
