Hwange stay top despite defeat

HWANGE - Hwange maintained leadership of the Castle Premiership despite going down 1-0 at home to Chicken Inn at the Colliery yesterday.

The coalminers stayed on 22 points, and now lead only on goal difference. They are joined now on 22 points by How Mine and Dynamos, who are second and third respectively.

Thomas Chiminya grabbed the solitary goal for Joey Antipas’ men yesterday on 19 minutes with a rising volley that hit the roof of the net.

Hwange coach Nation Dube blamed biased officiating for his team’s defeat, questioning why match officials from Bulawayo had been assigned to handle the match.

Bulawayo-based Philani Ncube was in charge.

The hosts were missing their talismanic striker Rodwell Chingengetere, who is on trials in South Africa with an undisclosed club.  In his absence, the coalminers lacked bite and leadership upfront, with defender Eric Chipeta’s departure also being felt in defence.

Zimbabwe international Chipeta has left Hwange to join newly-promoted South African Premiership club Chippa United.
