CAPS United stutter to draw

HARARE - CAPS United coach Taurai Mangwiro vowed to end the season on high note despite dropping two crucial points against relegation-threatened Harare City here yesterday.

The result kept Harare City in the relegation zone of the Castle Premiership with 35 points and have same number of points and goal different with Shabanie. Both teams are fighting to avoid the last relegation slot.

Alarm bells should start ringing loudly in the Harare City, who face a tall order in the last game against rejuvenated Chicken Inn.

Makekepe remain in third position on the table with 50 points and they have tricky assignment in their last match when they face title chasing ZPC Kariba.

“We would want to have a strong finish and we want to win our remaining game,” Mangwiro said.

“We did not play well in the first half, our opponents dominated us in every department. We dig deep to rescue a point.

“But at half time I told my boys that the league is not over and we have something to play for and they came back with a fighting spirit

“Our aim has been to win our own matches and worry much about what the others are doing. We have been playing well, but the results haven’t been reflecting that.”

Harare City coach Masimba Dinyero believes the Sunshine Boys can still avoid the chop.

“We still have hopes of surviving relegation,” he said.

“The good thing is that we are playing our last game at home and we are confident that we are going to win.”

The visitors dominated the early moments of the match and could have opened the scoring as early as 15 minutes after Talent Chawapihwa won the ball inside the box but shot straight to CAPS goalkeeper Tafadzwa Dube.

City were duly rewarded in the 28th minute after Agripa Murimba received a pass from Francesco Zekumbawira inside the box to score with a wonderful effort that beat an outdrawn Dube.

CAPS equalised on 64 minutes after Ronald Pfumbidzai won possession just outside the box before finding his way past a clutter of defenders to fire past Harare City goalkeeper Maxwell Nyamupanedengu.
