Buffaloes keep PSL survival hopes alive

MUTARE - Buffaloes kept their hopes of surviving relegation alive with a hard-fought 2-1 home win over ZPC Kariba in a Castle Lager Premiership match at Sakubva Stadium yesterday.

Watungwa-watungwa are in a relegation dogfight in which they need to win all their remaining fixtures while praying for Tsholotsho who sit a point above them to drop points.

Buffaloes had a perfect start after Prosper Matizanadzo put his side ahead in the 11th minute before Jacob Muzokomba doubled the advantage in the 25th minute.

ZPC Kariba, however, came back from the break fired up but all their efforts were limited to Raphael Manuvire’s 64th minute strike to reduce the arrears.

The army side’s gaffer Saul Chaminuka still firmly believes they will survive the chop after beating his old club by outsmarting his replacement at ZPC Sunday Chidzambwa.

“We have another day to fight, we are still fighting, as I said earlier we have been in this situation before, we are used to such pressures.

“Today, we came into the match under pressure, the game against Triangle, there will be less pressure,” he said.

Chidzambwa blamed the loss to conceding early soft goals.

“We lost the match in the first half , they scored easy goals but we took control of the game in the second half," Mhofu said.
