Motor Action bounced back to winning ways after seeing off the challenge of determined Gunners in a Castle Larger Premier Soccer League match played at Motor Action sports Club on Sunday.
Striker Tawanda Nyamandwe thrust the Mighty Bulls into the lead after just six minutes with Ocean Mushure compounding Gunners’ woes in the 50th minute.
Gunners’ Ishmael Lawe pulled one back for his side with his first touch in the game in the 55th minute after coming in for out-of-sorts Leonard Fiyado, but his side fell further behind in the 74th minute through a Kuda Musharu effort.
Barely a minute later Michelle Katsvairo found the mark for Gunners, but the damage had already been done.
Motor Action coach Joey Antipas, whose side remain rooted on position four having garnered 48 poinst, 10 adrift of leaders FC Platinum and Dynamos with a game to go, was full of praise for his charges.
“The win is very pleasing to us because it came after a long time. We had been drawing and losing games. It was always going to be difficult for us to defend the title and congratulations to whoever will win it (the championship) between Dynamos and FC Platinum,” he said.
Gunners coach Moses Chunga said his side paid dearly for presenting Motor Action with easy scoring opportunities.
“In the first half we did not have shape and kept on repeating the same mistakes. However, I am happy with what the youngsters have done as they came from being relegation candidates to championships contenders.
“The problem we have in life is that if you give people a finger, they will want the whole hand. These youngsters showed a lot of potential in the season and with enough support, they will achieve more,” said Chunga.
