Buffaloes edge Bantu Rovers

MUTARE - Buffaloes eased their mounting Castle Premiership relegation worries here Saturday with a hard fought 2-1 victory over fellow strugglers Bantu Rovers.

The home side took the lead after benefitting from a Johannes Ngodzo own goal after 16 minutes before Katsigu Juwakinyu scored the second after the break.

Bantu pulled one back through defender Herbert Dick's header off a long Fortune Ncube throw in late in the second half.

Buffaloes coach Luke Masomere conceded that his charges played badly but was happy with the result.

“It’s a good result in the sense that we got all three points. We have to be serious to succeed in fighting relegation,” he said.

“I'm happy we played badly but got a good result, it’s also a sign that we can fight to the bitter end.”

Bantu Rovers coach Methembe Ndlovu interestingly felt his team did not deserve to win after an equally poor performance.

"We played poorly today and didn't deserve to win. We have not been playing well for two games now but unfortunately when we play well the officiating is bad and today we had great officiating and we play badly," Methembe said.
