Another Caps defeat angers fans


Yadah Stars boosted their chances of remaining in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League with an important win over struggling Caps United at the National Sports Stadium yesterday.


It was the third defeat on the trot for Caps United and the fans openly expressed their anger to coach Lloyd Chitembwe who had to come out to address them. In his post-match comments to the media, Chitembwe noted that his team has been struggling with chance conversion.

“The scoring part is missing in our game. We played as if the match was of less significance. I am very disappointed especially when fans come and are expecting something. We really need to change a lot of things especially for next year,” he said.

On the other hand, Yadah coach Thomas Ruzive hailed his side’s performance, as they enhanced their survival hopes.
“I think we are one leg out of the relegation battle, but the war is still on. We just have to work extra hard so that we get out of the red zone,” he said.

Yadah’s first goal came through veteran striker Ralph Matema and they doubled their lead four minutes into the second half.

Leeroy Mavhunga converted a penalty that came after Matema was felled in the box by Godwin Goriyati.
Caps United got a consolation goal through Valentine Musarurwa’s set piece in the 57th minute.

  1. Farai, there is a time of welcoming a coach, another time of tolerating a coach’s stories for failing and yet another time for giving a coach second/ third chances. This time is the time to say goodbye to Lloyd. He has overstayed his welcome.

  2. LOdza must be fired
    stale and mediocre
    Jere is also useless
    will not support rubbish next season

  3. WE are tired of his stories
    please get us a better coach

    1. Everything about this team has gone bad. I started to see serious signs of decline after their participation in the Champions league. They’re still buried in that hangover. There was evidence of the need for new ideas and completely new players. We have been watching the current ‘street threatre’ for too long.

  4. Comment…When kepekepe lost to DeMbare, people spoke of match-fixing to save DeMbare from relegation but kepekepe has gone to lose two more, kepekepe bho!
