Vihiga Queens coach Boniface Nyamunyamu is confident his charges will rise again after dropping two crucial points at the weekend following a goalless draw with Gaspo Women.

Vihiga, who are seeking to reclaim the league crown they relinquished last season to current Thika Queens, had conjured up five straight victories since the league started until they faced Gaspo on Sunday at the Mumias Sports Complex.

, coach Nyamunyamu remains positive despite the setback, saying his charges are grounded andand will bounce back strongly this weekend when they meet Zetech Sparks on matchday seven in Nairobi.

“It was a nice game though we lost most of our open chances that we could have utilised to kill off the game. However, we hope to be back on winning,” Nyamunyamu told People Sport.

The Legacy Makers, as they are popularly referred to, are still firmly on top of the league table standings with 16 points from five wins and a draw in six matches they have played so far.

Gaspo, who feel they gained from the tie are, second on the log with improved 13 points from four victories, one draw, and a defeat.

Trans Nzoia Falcons who also fought breathlessly to a goalless draw with Nakuru City Queens are still third on the table with 13 points as well with the draw doing little to save the City Queens from dropping to the relegation zone in 11th place with five points.

Surprisingly, reigning champions Thika Queens are in unfamiliar territory has their inconsistency continued at the weekend when they lost 1-0 to host Ulinzi Starlets, their second defeat of the season.

They now lie sixth on the log with 10 points, swapping positions with their weekend tormentor Ulinzi who have now moved up to fourth place on 11 points from two wins, three draws, and one defeat.

Elsewhere, Wadadia conjured up their third win after beating Kayole Starlets 2-0 to move up to fifth while Zetech Sparks and Kisumu All-Starlets made huge leaps, moving up to seventh and eighth after fighting hard to see off bottom-placed Kangemi Starlets 4-3 and newcomers Bunyore Starlets 1-0 respectively.
