Caps United, who are on a re-building exercise after firing seven of its players over a salary dispute, did not disappoint and could have won the match by a bigger margin, but they lacked precision in front of goal.
It was a balanced affair in the first half, but the Green Machine dominated the second part of the game with Pride Tafirenyika and Rahman Kutsanzira doing much of the damage.
Cameroonian Eric Talla played a blinder on the left flank for the army side. Former Hardbody player Jacob Muzokomba scored for the army side in the first half from a free-kick before Roy Useni directed Joseph Mutambiranwa’s cross into his own goal.
‘’I think everything is shaping up, we are making progress with our preparations and l’m happy. We would like to play as many friendly matches as we can because we want to assess every player before we wield the axe on some of the players,’’ he said.
‘’The problem is still the same, we are not scoring goals, but l believe we can win the battle.”
Caps United assistant coach Mkhuphali Masuku was not part of the technical bench, the clubs goalkeeper’s coach Brenna Msika was in charge.
