Vihiga eye fresh NSL streak after Stima shocker
Vihiga United Secretay General Wycliffe Luvavu backed the side to embark on another spectacular streak in the National Super League (NSL) after Nairobi Stima brought their 18-match unbeaten streak to an end on Wednesday.
The 1-0 loss at the Karuturi Stadium in Naivasha marked only the second defeat of the season for the NSL leaders who seem destined to earn top-flight promotion after finishing fifth – one place off the promotion bracket – last term.
Their previous defeat came in the hands GFE 105 on April 2 when they went down 2-1 at their Mumias backyard.
“We played well but in the end that was not enough. They got a chance out from 18 yards in the dying minutes and that’s all they needed. I believe we will win our next match and continue dominating the league,” Luvavu told Citizen Digital.
Despite the defeat, Vihiga sit atop the NSL on 50 points after 22 rounds although they present second-placed Ushuru (46) the chance to close the gap between them to just one point should they win their game in hand.
Ushuru, who were relegated from the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) last season, play Stima in their next match while Vihiga are yet to learn their next opponents after their match against Modern Coast Rangers was postponed.
