CHAPUNGU . . . . . . (1) 2
BUFFALOES . . . . . . (0) 1
CHAPUNGU maintained their imperious home record with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Buffaloes in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match played at Ascot Stadium yesterday.
Two goals in either half by the Chapungu duo of Gift Phiri and Charles Murisa outweighed Lloyd Katongomara’s effort.
The result means Chapungu have managed to avenge their 2-0 defeat in Mutare in their last meeting with the same opponent.
Winning coach John Nyikadzino was happy with collecting maximum points against their fellow combat men.
“I am very happy with the performance and the result as well. We won our last match here and it now shows consistency
at home. Winning at home also gives our supporters confidence of rallying behind us,” Nyikadzino said.
Buffaloes assistant coach Timothy Masachi bemoaned the missed chances by his charges for the defeat.
“It is an unfortunate result. A draw could have been a fair result. We missed a lot of chances especially in the first half which could have given us a result, but that is part of football and we now have to win our next game at home,” Masachi said.
At Maglas Stadium, Shabanie Mine and Harare City drew 2-2.
