Not so limited Chikafa

HARARE - New brooms sweep clean but on Sunday, Limited Chikafa showed that it is the old broom that knows all the corners.

The 33-old, who continues to defy the odds, was the toast of ZPC Kariba’s offense that nailed Highlanders to keep within shouting distance of the Premier Soccer League title.

Chikafa weighed in with a second half brace as ZPC Kariba took their points tally to 44, two adrift of log leaders Dynamos, who they have a chance to usurp when they meet in the reverse fixture before the season ends.

Although not as quick as he was at the turn of the millennium when he dazzled the local premiership turning out Railstars, Chikafa showed bags of his experience on and off the ball.

Bruce Kangwa, who is usually an outlet for most Highlanders’ attacks from left back was kept in defensive mode by the former CAPS United captain.

Chikafa’s two goals was as sweet as they come, first volleying on the first attempt from outside the box to beat Ariel Sibanda before heading home in the 60th minute, sealing Bosso’s fate in the process.

“This was something I have been doing throughout the week playing the long ball and playing on the counter because Highlanders are good in midfield,” Chikafa said of his first goal.

“So when that ball was played to me from midfield I knew it was going to be something special.

“Playing in Bulawayo, I always feel at home. I was at Railstars playing Highlanders here several times I think this is one time I have scored most of my beautiful goals.”

The former CAPS United striker believes that ZPC Kariba have gone beyond expectation and insists they can even go further only if they remain composed.

“We don’t want to put ourselves under pressure. The championship will be a bonus. But given an opportunity the championship is there for anyone to take it but at the moment I think we are on a good track,” he said.

Not many people expected ZPC Kariba to emerged from Bulawayo with maximum points but the league debutants led by Chikafa defied all odds and left Highlanders reeling with eternal strife.
