SILAS Songani snatched a point for his Danish top- flight football league side SønderjyskE in a weekend where there were two injury concerns to his fellow Warriors mates playing abroad.
The winger scored right at the death as his side drew 2-2 at Silkeborg for his fifth goal of the season in 21 appearances for his Super League side.
His fellow countryman in the same league Quincy Antipas had his Hobro team hammered 5-0 at AAB with the Warriors man lasting the first 45 minutes of the match.
But the weekend recorded two major injury concerns for two Warriors players in Costa Nhamoinesu and the rejuvenated Nyasha Mushekwi.
Nhamoinesu did not finish the game for his Czech Republic side Sparta Praha who collected maximum points with a 2-3 win at fourth Mlada Boleslav to keep pace with log leaders Viktoria Plzen. The defender was carried off the field after 68 minutes with a suspected knee injury although his coach Sparta coach Zdenèk Šçasný is hopeful the highly rated left-back would be available for next week’s crucial top of the table home clash against Plzen. The two sides are separated by three points going into the final four matches of the season.
Before the Sunday match, the 29-year-old had started and finished the previous 24 of his team’s 26 matches so far. The one match he missed was through suspension after accumulating three yellow cards.
In Sweden, Mushekwi was replaced at halftime for his league side Djurgården, complaining of headache and dizziness.
The gunman has been on fire since joining the club a few weeks ago; scoring five goals in six matches and is now the league’s second top goal scorer.
“I got a headache, I began to feel dizzy and felt that it was not worth risking anything,” explained the 27-year-old after the match.
“I started to feel it after I nodded the ball, then I started to get a little dizzy. I still feel a little dizzy, but I’m sure I will be fine.”
Mushekwi’s side won the match 5-1. Knowledge Musona’s Belgian side KV Oostende missed on the chance to play European Cup football next season after they were beaten 1-0 by Mouscron-Péruwelz in a Europa League play-off match. KV Oostende have won two of their five matches so far with six points to remain third on the four team play-off log standings with one round of matches to go. The battle for the coveted ticket is now between Mouscron-Péruwelz who are second on the table with 9 points, one behind Lokeren who are playing Musona’s side in the final round matches.
In England, 23-year-old Tendayi Darikwa’s League One side Chesterfield finished the season on a remarkable sixth position and will now be involved in the promotional play-off semifinal against Preston North End who finished third. The winner of the tie will clash against the winner between Swindon Town and Sheffield United with the winner joining champions Bristol City and runners up MK Dons into the Championship league, which is the English League’s second tier.
Darikwa, born in England but has publicly stated that he would want to play for the Warriors, has started in all the 46 matches for his side this season, scoring one goal.
Still in League One, Macauley Bonne’s Colchester survived relegation on a dramatic last day of the season, scoring the vital winning goal against Preston North End with eight minutes remaining to ensure participation in the league again next season.
