Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Women Division One League fourth round resumes this weekend with three teams going flat out to redeem themselves after losing their opening matches.

Former top-tier league side Makolanders FC, Mukuru Talent Ladies and newcomers Rongai Eaglets are yet to win any match, leave alone scoring a single goal.

Makolanders have lost two opening matches on a trot and in the process conceded five goals.

However, coach Michael Okanga is unfazed by the indifferent start and has expressed optimism that his charges shall bounce back.

“Yes, we have yet to get our footing in the league but once we manage to do that, there will be stopping us. The players are slowly gelling and our fans should not press the panic buttons,” he said.

Okanga will be leading his troops against Mombasa Olympic Ladies at Camp Toyoyo with the tactician hopeful of an improved result.

“The girls know what they are supposed to do and we take our recent defeat as a learning process moving forward. Obviously, a lot is expected of us as the home team but we cannot underrate Mobasa since they are also in search of three points,” he offered.

Meanwhile, Royal Starlets are scheduled to host Bungoma Queens in a match that shall pit two evenly balanced sides.

Yesterday, Bungoma Queens coach Jairus Misiko said they expect a tough match against the usually stubborn.

“This game is tricky because Starlets need to maintain the position and finish with an unbeaten run., All the same, we are equally and we shall just play our usual game of course with an aim of winning,” said Misiko.

The other exciting fixture in the offing is a potentially exciting one between MTG United and Mathare Women at MTG Grounds.

Elsewhere, Soccer Sisters will be up against Kibra Girls Soccer at Kirigu Primary School with Limuru Starlets hosting Uweza Women at Gichuru High School, Ngecha.
