CHICKEN INN… (2) 2
HARARE CITY… ( 0)0
A FIRST half brace saw Chicken Inn progress to the next round of the Chibuku Super Cup in an exciting match at Luveve Stadium yesterday.
In a rather lacklustre first half that brightened after 20 minutes of play, it was the home side that found form first as the steadying influence of Tafadzwa Kutinyu came to the fore.
Chicken Inn opened their account in the 29th minute.
Kutinyu coolly threaded an immaculate pass to Munashe Pini whose strike from an acute angle hit the post before sailing well beyond a bemused Kelvin Shangiwa, the City goalkeeper.
City quickly regrouped through a flashy move that saw Timothy January shoot straight to a grateful Bernard Donovan in goals for the Gamecocks.

The second came in the 33rd minute following a brilliant interchange of passes involving Denzel Khumalo, Xolani Ndlovu and Kutinyu, before the latter found an on-fire Malvin Gaki, whose rising shot from close range made it 2-0.
Harare City came back from the break the most purposefully and tactically superior but could not breach the home side’ s backline buoyed by their 2-goal cushion.
