The long standing league leaders were beaten 2-1 by Stima, and in effect handed the title initiative to six other sides.
Leopards now only lead second placed Gor Mahia by two points ahead of their derby clash next weekend, but despite their recent trials and tribulations, Koops says that his players are still the favourites for the title.
Still in the lead
- We are dissapointed to lose to Stima and to lose these points. It is a big loss for us.
- However, we are still in the ahead, two points is still a lead and we will work hard to maintain it, he said after the Stima clash.
Leopards face off with Gor in a top of the table clash next weekend.
