Soccer player of the week


CASTLE Lager Premier Soccer League side Buffaloes’ goalkeeper Blessing Mwandimutsira says he is excited with his form that has seen him keep a clean sheet in six matches.


Since being hit with an avalanche of five goals by Hwange in the season opener, the 25-year-old goal-minder has kept clean sheets, maintaining that record against FC Platinum at Sakubva Stadium in their 1-0 win on Sunday.

He was also at his best when Buffaloes beat Dynamos 1-0 at the National Sports Stadium and when they faced Harare City.

Other clean sheets came against Chicken Inn and Caps United.

Buffaloes defeated Chicken Inn 2-0 at Sakubva and drew nil-all against Caps United and ZPC Kariba respectively.

“Today [Sunday], I also did well to keep a clean sheet. FC Platinum are not an ordinary team. I am just hoping that I will reach eight matches without conceding. I am now two games away from reaching my target,” he told NewsDay Sport.

“I owe my success to my team-mates who always encourage me to do well. My defenders are also playing a big role in protecting my goal area. If we continue to do well, then we will end the season in a good position.”

Mwandimutsira’s fine form has ensured that Buffaloes are occupying second position on the log standings with 14 points from seven matches, the same with league’s toppers Hwange.

The army side have Warriors trialist Prosper Matizanadzo and Philip Chandisaita in central defence, while Simon Choenda and Moses Gutu marshal the left-back and right-back respectively.
