CASTLE Lager Premier Soccer League side Buffaloes head coach Saul Chaminuka has conceded that they are now under pressure as they gone for three consecutive matches without collecting a point.
The army side, who at one time collected maximum points in five consecutive matches lost against Highlanders and How Mine respectively in a space of two weeks in Bulawayo recently.
On Sunday they suffered a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Black Mambas who had also gone for five matches without a win.
It was Tsepo Ranthokoane and Nicholas Alifandika, who made the difference for the police outfit after scoring a goal apiece in each half with the army side replying through Steven Sibanda.
Another defeat in Bulawayo against Chicken Inn tomorrow (Wednesday) is likely to spell a disaster for Chaminuka who are currently lying in eighth position from their opening 10 matches. Chicken Inn are no push overs especially when they are playing at home and are sixth on the log after beating Black Rhinos 1-0 on Saturday in Harare.
Chaminuka said: “No coach is ever happy when his side loses a match, the game against Mambas was the one we needed to win most to boost our morale, but this is part of football.
“We are back again to the pressure exactly how we started the season and hopefully we will try very hard to come out of the situation because in the game of football you will always be under pressure.”
Buffaloes lost their first two matches of the season to FC Platinum and Monomotapa.
