The Gamecocks needed a win after posting three successive losses to Yadah Stars, Caps United and Highlanders, but the Chinda Boys put spirited second half display to deny Rahman Gumbo’s men the much-needed three points.

On the other hand, Shabanie needed a victory to increase their relegation survival chances.

Chicken Inn dominated the early exchanges, with veteran midfielder Clemence Matawu controlling play in the midfield.

Passmore Bernard opened the score sheet for the Gamecocks 33 minutes into the game, after a neat interchange of passes that involved Matawu and Darryl Nyandoro.

Shabanie Mine came from the break rejuvenated and equalised in the 62nd minute through skipper Farai Mupasiri from a free-kick just outside the box.

After the match, Gumbo fumed, saying the referee gave Shabanie an unnecessary free-kick.

“That was not a free-kick. The referee just favoured the home side. He wasn’t fair at all.

“We had played well throughout the game, but the referee let us down and it looks like the referee played for Shabanie. But we cannot do anything about that, we now focus on the next games,” he said.

Shabanie Mine coach Takesure Chiragwi praised his charges for the fighting spirit.

“The boys played well, and like I always say our play is hinged on fighting spirit. We did well in the second half where we got a goal,” he said.

“At the moment, the important thing is to collect points. We do not mind about the team we are playing because our priority is to collect points so that we get out of the relegation zone.”

Nyandoro almost doubled the score for Chicken Inn when he found space in the box, but his slow reaction gave the Shabanie rearguard time to recover, with his effort blocked by Nyasha Mpofu.

Nyandoro again failed to hit the nets when a cross from a corner kick picked him in the box, his header hitting the cross bar while Shabanie goalkeeper Petros Moyo remained rooted to the spot.

Shabanie got chances to double their advantage in the final quarter of the game, but their strike force failed to bury the chances.

  1. Mabasa aGladmore Muzambi. Week in week out people are complaining of the standard of officiating. Can he come again and defend the official. Kana zvaramba mkoma it is better you resign so that someone with new ideas takes over, our local officials have failed even to be called to officiate at AFCON and World Cup qualifiers.

  3. Thanks for discussing your ideas. I would also like to state that video games have been at any time evolving. Modern technology and innovative developments have helped create authentic and fun games. Most of these entertainment games were not actually sensible when the real concept was first being experimented with. Just like other designs of technological innovation, video games too have had to develop through many decades. This is testimony for the fast progression of video games.

  5. I have figured out some important matters through your blog post post. One other thing I would like to state is that there are many games available on the market designed mainly for toddler age small children. They include things like pattern acceptance, colors, dogs, and models. These usually focus on familiarization as opposed to memorization. This makes a child engaged without having a sensation like they are studying. Thanks
