NyamuNyamu rues Vihiga Queens’ profligacy in Gaspo draw
Vihiga Queens head coach Boniface NyamuNyamuh has rued his team’s profligacy in front of goal after the champions were held 0-0 by Gaspo Women in the Kenyan Women Premier League (KWPL) encounter on Sunday at the Mumias Sports Complex.
Although the Western Kenya-based side are still on top of the log with 16 points after six rounds of matches, three points above second-placed Gaspo, NyamuNyamuh says he is keen to stress that further lapses in concentration will only negatively affect the team’s fortunes.
Speaking to Citizen Digital, the tactician termed the barren draw as a necessary wake-up call if they are to defend their crown.
“It was a tough match but my players wasted a lot of chances, that's why we settled for a draw.
“A lot of chances emerged in the second half and my strikers at some point were left with the opponent keeper but failed to score. That’s what I am working on this week in the training as we switch our focus to the next match,” he said.
The defending champions take on Zetech on Saturday in a match the seasoned coach says he expects improvement from his charges to be on full display.
“Our aim remains the same that we must win the title this season, something which I am sure we shall achieve,” he added.
