Western Stima form and stats

When playing at home in the Premier League, Western Stima, who have the most conceded goals (25) in Premier League, have managed 0 wins, 1 draw and suffered 4 defeats from 5 games. It's been an uphill battle for Western Stima in their home games for quite some time now, as four matches in a row are lost here. Not since the Bidco United game have they avoided the disappointment of defeat.

Western's previous game was also a home match, the defeat 2-3 versus Homeboyz (placed 11th). Preceding that game was the away draw at Ulinzi Stars that finished 2-2.

The defeat against Homeboyz was especially painful as the deciding goal against was scored one minutes into stoppage time (by A. Wanga).

The manager will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Vihiga United in only four days.

The Western Stima fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 6 in 5 matches. As for conceded goals, Western's unpleasant statistic is 13 goals surrendered.
