Vihiga United form and stats

There's been little loot from Vihiga United's travels as they have only collected 6 points from 9 away games in the Premier League. Vihiga United, who have the fewest scored goals (6) in Premier League, only have 1 win to counter their 5 defeats and 3 draws. The sun doesn’t shine and the birds do not sing for Vihiga, who have now gone ten games without a victory. The Gor Mahia game was their last win and it’s been a dry spell since.

The attacking players of Vihiga United have been feeble for some time now, the team not scoring a league goal in the last 861 minutes.

Vihiga failed to get anything from their last game, a Premier League home match vs Tusker (placed 1st) that ended with defeat 0-4. Vihiga lost the plot completely in their previous game, as mentioned above. They need to recover quickly from that 0-4 beating and focus on this one.

Preceding that, the 0-1 home loss versus Gor Mahia.

Vihiga are seemingly not capable of scoring regularly on their travels in the league. They have only managed 3 goals from 9 away games. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 0 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. As opposed to that, Vihiga have seen the ball go into their own net 12 times on the road. It's worth mentioning that 6 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.
