CAPS United lose ground

CHIREDZI - A number of CAPS United fans were yesterday arrested as they turned violent when trying to attack Makepekepe players before yesterday’s defeat to Triangle at Gibbo Stadium.

The Makepekepe fans fought running battles with police as they bayed for the Green Machine players’ blood accusing them of receiving money to throw away the match.

There was, however, no further details regarding the arrests as the Daily News failed to get a comment from the local police.

After the disturbances, the match finally kicked-off with Makepekepe enjoying most of the possession as the players appeared to have put their off-field troubles behind.

The visitors took the lead after 29 minutes when Triangle defender Jimmy Tigere beat his own goalkeeper Ronald Mudimu.

Triangle, however, regrouped in the second period as they were able to turn around the match when Mudimu scored from the spot in the 60th minute.

Nine minutes later, the Sugar Sugar Boys were in front after former CAPS striker Courage Denias scored what proved to be the winning goal to punish his former paymasters.

With the win, Triangle remained in the relegation zone on 13th place with 30 points while Makepekepe failed to gain any ground on Dynamos and ZPC Kariba at the top of the log.

“I was not happy about what happened today. Why some fans have to come all the way from Harare just to disturb the players,” said CAPS coach Taurai Mangwiro after the match.

Triangle coach Biggie Zuze said: “This is a good win and a morale booster for us and we are happy with the performance as it gives us a good chance of surviving relegation.”
