• We expect the perfect response against Post Bank. We are going all out for a win-Chelangat.
• Chelangat has reservations about their chances against Kenya Pipeline on Saturday.
Nairobi Water captain Ruth Chelangat believes beating fellow newbies Post Bank this Sunday in the national women's volleyball league match will help kick-start their season.
The second leg of the Kenya Volleyball Federation women's league is set for this weekend at the Nyayo Stadium.
Nairobi Water lost by an identical 3-0 scoreline against both Kenya Prisons and the Directorate of Criminal Investigation DCI during the first leg played last month. Post Bank, on the other hand, hammered Vihiga 3-0.
Chelangat said she expects the team to finally clinch their first victory of the season after working on their weaknesses.
"We expect the perfect response against Post Bank. We are going all out for a win. So far, so good, since the players have bonded well and understand the system of play, something that was lacking in the opening matches."
She added: "We are at the same level as Post Bank so, we shouldn't fear anything."
However, Chelangat has reservations about their chances against Kenya Pipeline on Saturday. The oil merchants are the league-defending champions.
They won the coveted trophy unbeaten and look imperious this time as well. Under the guidance of coach Peter Gitua, Pipeline mastered wins against DCI and Nairobi Prisons.
"We will put our best foot forward. They are way above us by virtue of being defending champions. They have been consistent but we will do our best."
