Zuze calls for Triangle response

HARARE - Triangle coach Biggie Zuze was less than impressed with his team’s showing against ZPC Kariba at the weekend and has called for a massive improvement in their next assignments.

The Lowveld side was handed a 5-1 hiding by Saul Chaminuka’s men, their heaviest defeat at home since they gained promotion into the Premiership two years ago.

Zuze, who spent last season as the head coach at the relegated Monomotapa, seems to be feeling the heat following the huge loss which was preceded by a 2-1 defeat at the hands of CAPS United last Thursday.

And Zuze knows his side needs to produce a much improved display when they travel to the capital to face struggling Harare City at Gwanzura Stadium on Friday.

“We need to analyse that defeat and then quickly focus on our next match against Harare City on Friday. We need to improve, there is no doubt about it,” Zuze told Daily News yesterday.

“I thought we had started well to the season but lately we slowed down. That was a very disappointing result and no one expected it to go that way. We need to quickly recover from the setback.

“Such kind of results helps to work on certain areas as a team. I think after that match we now know where we need to improve going forward”.

Triangle, Zuze added, enjoyed plenty of possession as ZPC Kariba defended deep, but could not carve out any meaningful openings.

“The good thing is that we are creating chances. Thus we need to work on our strike-force so that we convert those chances. There is also need to psyche the boys.

“The match against Harare City will be even more difficult than the previous matches that we have played. As you aware they have not been winning and they are eager to start picking up points.

“I think we are playing some good football but we only need to work on some small issues.”

Zuze replaced Gishon Ntini, who guided Triangle into the Premiership and a top eight finish in their first season last year, was relieved of his duties at the start of the year after falling out with the team’s leadership.
