AFC Leopards coach Patrick Aussems has declared that his team is fully focused on playing one game at a time and is not thinking of the Football Kenya Federation Premier League glory.

The Belgian tactician who talked to Betking Kenya said that he is happy with the quality of performance in the league as he is preparing his side to take on their arch-rivals Gor Mahia on July 4th.

"The quality of the FKF Premier League is very good and I am happy with how our players are playing and the amount of work they put in during matches," Aussems told Betking Kenya.

"We cannot think about the title now, we just go one game at a time and see what the season holds. I am really impressed with the quality of our performances. We created the chances and took them. Now we have to look into Wednesday again and hope to go on in this way."

The 56-year-old went on to give credit to his team for their good performances last weekend after coming from behind to beat Wazito FC 2-1 in the Football Kenya Federation Premier League

"We have played nine games in the last 30 days and most of these players have played 90 minutes in all of the games," the former Simba SC coach continued.

"It was important that we give some of them a rest to ensure they remain fresh. Those who came in really impressed and I must say they have given me some trouble in my head for the next game."

Ingwe is preparing for a Mashemeji Derby in the FKF Shield Cup final against arch-rivals Gor Mahia on Sunday, July 4 after eliminating Equity FC in the semis while Kogalo booked a place in the finals with a victory over Bidco United.

The champion will represent the country in the Caf Confederation Cup next season.
