CASTLE Lager Premier Soccer League side Triangle Football Club have thrown their weight behind head coach Biggie Zuze, who is having a torrid time in the Lowveld after a poor start to the 2014 campaign.
Triangle go into the first league break to pave way for the Warriors’ Africa Cup of Nations first leg first round encounter against Tanzania this weekend, in the bottom half of the log standings.
They are occupying 14th position with five points from seven matches, the same as neighbours Chiredzi FC who are a rung below because of an inferior goal difference.
Triangle chairman Lovemore Matikinyidze says he is confident Zuze will deliver soon.
“Just give us time to regroup. We are fine. The guys are not taking a break as we are preparing for our next assignments. We are fully behind the coach and we are very confident that Zuze will deliver,” he said.
“We are going through a bad spell and it happens in football. Every team goes through such poor form, but when we start collecting points things will improve,” he added.
Their only win came against Chiredzi in a match they clobbered the Moses Chunga-coached side 3-0 at Gibbo Stadium.
But the club’s real problems started to emerge in the sixth match of the season when they lost 5-1 to the unbeaten ZPC Kariba in their own backyard.
A section of the club’s supporters who have lost faith in Zuze booed him after the match and the situation was worsened by last Friday’s 2-1 loss to rock-bottom Harare City.
Just like last year, Triangle had a disastrous start to the season under Gishon Ntini, but they rallied back to end the season in a respectable seventh position.
Triangle’s next league match will be against in-form Buffaloes at Gibbo next week.
