Quelaton, who had been already been written off, pulled a shocker when they beat Monomotapa in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match played at Luveve Stadium yesterday.
Monomotapa had taken the lead as early as the first minute through Makai Kwashu before Quelaton replied with an equaliser from Simba Manwere in the third minute.
Timothy January grabbed the second for Quelaton in the eighth minute before Innocent Kutsanzira got the third in the 33rd minute before Osborn Mukuradare grabbed the second for Monomotapa five minutes before full time.
Quelaton remained at the bottom with nine points from 23 games, while Monomotapa remained third with 40 points from the same number of games.
Quelaton coach Farai Sibanda was happy with the win.
“We still have a lot of work to do. If we focus on our work rate like the one we produced today we can get another win. We still need to drill the players to focus on winning, not relegation. The three points will motivate the boys,” he said. Monomotapa coach Biggie Zuze was naturally a disappointed man as the team was coming from a 3-0 win over Hwange last Saturday.
“We were playing a team that is facing relegation unless a miracle happens. They created three chances and they utilised them, but we only managed two goals. We lost the game because of lack of concentration after taking the lead,” he said.
