Manica 0-2 Chicken Inn
MANICA Diamonds scuppered their winning streak at home yesterday when they fell to former champions Chicken Inn who demonstrated superiority in a Castle Lager Premiership match at Gibbo.
Goals from Bret Amidu and Premiership top-goal-scorer Clive Augusto were enough to help Joey Antipas and his side recover from back-to-back defeats against FC Platinum and Ngezi Platinum Stars.
Manica gaffer Luke Masomere conceded Chicken Inn were the better side but felt they could have done better if they were clinical in front of goals.
“I think it was a game of two halves. We created chances in the second half but we could not convert even the simplest of chances. Chicken Inn were more organised and they deserved to win.
“We are also starting to feel fatigued with lot of travelling and we feel it’s high time we start using our home ground in Rusape,” he said.
Caps United 1-0 Harare City
SPEED MERCHANT Gabriel Nyoni scored for the third game in a row as Caps United gave team captain Hardlife Zvirekwi the perfect birthday present with another fine Castle Lager Premiership victory yesterday.
Zvirekwi turned 32 yesterday.
The Green Machine are enjoying a great start to the campaign and have only dropped points once, in that goalless draw against Highlanders when a late goal was somehow ruled out by the match officials, while also conceding just once.
At Rufaro, there was also a reason for some celebrations as coach Tonderai Ndiraya’s homecoming show saw Dynamos edge a battling ZPC Kariba 1-0 for their first league win in five games and only their second this season.
But, it was again all gloomy at Barbourfields as misfiring Highlanders again fired blanks and could only manage a goalless draw against Hwange.
Former Bosso vice-captain, Nyoni, probably the fastest player in the domestic Premiership, proved again why he could be a great acquisition for Makepekepe with a priceless strike that sunk Harare City. Chronicle
