Chidzambwa gets first point


SUNDAY Chidzambwa got his first point on return to local top football when his side ZPC Kariba held Tsholotsho FC to a goalless draw in an uninspiring Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match at White City Stadium.

TSHOLOTSHO FC . . . . . . . 0
ZPC KARIBA . . . . . . . . . . . 0

Chidzambwa lost his first two matches to Triangle at Gibbo Stadium and Tsholotsho at Nyamhunga Stadium by 0-1 score lines.

With the draw, ZPC Kariba just rode over Buffaloes to land on position 10 with 16 points with the Mutare-based side also on 16 points taking on How Mine at Luveve Stadium tomorrow.

Chidzambwa was happy with the point but said compared to the last two matches, yesterday his boys did not play well and he will be going on the market in search of strikers to beef up his squad.

“Today (yesterday) we did not play well. The last few games we were creating chances which we didn’t do today (yesterday). We need to beef up our squad and take it up from there. If we get a couple of players, we will climb up the ladder,” Chidzambwa said.

It’s not looking good for his counterpart Lizwe Sweswe, whose side Tsholotsho beat ZPC Kariba last Saturday and they remain on position 13 on the log table with 15 points.

“Three quarters of the teams in the league are not playing well and our position is not the main worry. We are not playing well at home. I am just looking at collecting maximum points in our next games,” Sweswe said after the match.

Even veteran Joel Luphahla was out of the game with Sizabantu Khoza producing a few brilliant flashes but without dividend.

Tsholotsho could have scored in the 69th minute but Simabarashe Gorogodyo’s effort from an Ocient Ncube cross was cleared off the line by Dexter Phiri.

ZPC Kariba striker and skipper of the day Raphael Manuvire was pulled out injured in the 43rd minute and replaced by Tawanda Nyamandwe.
