Good week for the Musonas

HARARE - The past week belonged to the Musona brothers Knowledge and Walter, who both scored their first goals for their respective clubs on Saturday.

The Musona siblings were under pressure to prove their mettle with Knowledge being the victim of the success of his previous spell in South Africa.

Since his return to Kaizer Chiefs on loan from TSG Hoffenheim in Germany, Knowledge had to contend with starting from the bench as AmaKhosi coach Stuart Baxter opted to start with Bernard Parker and Lehlohonolo Majoro.

The week, however, began on a good note for the elder Musona sibling, who scored for Zimbabwe with a cracking strike in an international friendly against South Africa last Tuesday.

Knowledge continued from where he left off when he grabbed the Kaiser Chiefs’ opener against Maritzburg United at Soccer City on Saturday night.

It was Knowledge’s first goal for Kaizer Chiefs in the 2013-14 season, having failed in front of goal in his first three outings for the Soweto side.

The Zimbabwe international finished off a rebound after Simphiwe Tshabalala shot had crashed against the upright.

AmaKhosi coach Baxter Baxter was hopeful that more is going to come from the Zimbabwean striker.

"Knowledge has been looking sharper in training," Baxter said of the Zimbabwean international.

"He scored a goal for us in a friendly game against Black Aces. He went away and scored with the national team and he scored in training.

"That performance tonight was as a result of that, so he looks as though he has landed."

While the elder Musona was getting his first goal of the season across the Limpopo, his young brother Walter was leading the Motor Action charge against relegation in the Castle Premiership on the same day.

Walter was on target for the 2010 Zimbabwe champions in the 1-1 draw against Shabanie Mine at Maglas Stadium.

The former Aces Youth Academy starlet finished off a rebound with an overhead kick after Wisdom Mutasa’s shot had been parried back into play by Shabanie keeper Roy Mazingi.

Motor action dominated the first half of the match and should have scored more goals as Walter together with the likes of Emmanuel Mandiranga, Scholar Hadebe and Yves Ebabali found themselves in plenty of space.

Although they were only able to get one point from Maglas, Motor Action assistant coach Prince Matore was optimistic that their young side will be able to fight retain their Premiership status.

“The youngsters are playing well; playing according to instructions. With this kind of display, I don't use s being relegated," said Matore.

The Mighty Bulls are anchoring the log standings with 15 points with only nine games left to play before the season ends.
