Chapungu, City share spoils

GWERU - Harare City coach Taurai Mangwiro was pleased with his team’s performance despite sharing the spoils with Chapungu in a Castle Lager Premiership match here yesterday.

City should consider themselves lucky after playing second fiddle to Chapungu for the better part of the match.

The hosts overcame a poor early showing to eventually settle for a one-all draw with Tongai Magwendere cancelling out Talent Chawapihwa’s early strike for the visitors.

The Air Force of Zimbabwe side went on to dominate the second half but failed to turn their dominance into goals.

City had to finish the game with 10 men after defender Crispen Dickson was handed his marching orders for a reckless challenge on Philip Marufu in the last minute.

“I am happy we avoided defeat. It was a difficult game and picking up a point away from home is not a bad result,” Mangwiro said after the game.

“We hope to keep on working hard and pick up maximum points in our next matches.”

Chapungu coach, while satisfied felt his team could have collected maximum points.

“Harare City is a good team. I am happy with my team’s performance but I thought we deserved maximum points. It’s, however, not a bad result,” said Nyikadzino.
