Motor Action's slump continues

HARARE – Motor Action suffered their third consecutive defeat at the hands of Monomotapa inside three weeks as the Mighty Bulls’ slump continued going down 2-0 at Motor Action Sports Club on Sunday.

The Mighty Bulls are now bottom of the Castle Premiership log with only 13 points from 16 games and are looking likely to be relegated this season.

Monomotapa got their goals from Zvikomborero Biseki and Clive Boroma to compound Motor Action to their ninth defeat of the season.

The 2010 league champions are now in dire straits and coach Joey Antipas believes they need to bring in reinforcements during the mid-season transfer window.

“This season is not good for us because we have lacked quality players and we need to acquire young players during the transfer window,” Antipas said after the match yesterday.

“It is never too late for us. You must know that anything can happen in football and I think we can survive relegation; all we have to do is to keep on trying.”

Monomotapa coach Biggie Zuze was delighted with the result which saw his side move into ninth place on 22 points.

“We are happy to win the match. The young players are hungry for success and its working well for us. The result shows a great sign of improvement,” Zuze said.

The match started off on a fairly balanced pace with the home side looking for an early goal while Monomotapa stuck to their passing game.

The best chance for Motor Action came after seven minutes when Merciful Ncube subtracted a number of Monoz defenders and let fly a shot that brought the best out of goalkeeper Tapiwa Zvaita.

Two minutes later, Motor Action goalkeeper Marlon Jani was called to make a diving save from Boroma’s header after good work by Nelson Melson on the left.

Monoz eventually broke the deadlock in the 15th minute when Biseki headed in Melson’s pin point cross.

After the breather, Monoz took off from where they had left and it did not come as a surprise when they scored their second goal.

Agrippa Murimba sent in a cross which found an unmarked Boroma inside the box to tape home from close range.
