HARARE – CAPS UNITED coach Taurai Mangwiro vowed to end the season on a high after Satuurday’s Castle Premiership 2-0 win over relegated Motor Action at Rufaro Stadium.
United needed a Douglas Walaza own goal and a Roland Pfumbidzayi penalty to give them all the three points yesterday and to take their tally to 48 after 29 games.
United, who are now three points off log leaders Highlanders who clash with third placed Harare City this afternoon, found their opener in the 37th minute when Walaza beat his own goalkeeper Donovan Bernard.
Pfumbidzai’s made sure of the points when he converted a 79th minute penalty after Mighty Bulls defender Davies Mwanza had handled Gerald Phiri’s cross inside the box.
Mangwiro, who had given starting berths to fringe players Blessing Zabula, Terence Ngonzo and Dominic Mukandi, was not impressed with his side’s performance but welcomed the three points.
“I wasn’t pleased with the way we played but I’m happy to have got the three points,” Mangwiro said.
“Our aim has been to win our own matches and not worrying much what the others are doing. We have been playing well but the results haven’t been reflecting that.
“In our last match it will be against Harare City and we know what that match will mean to us.
“We would want to have a strong finish and victory over Harare City I’m sure it would cement our place for a very strong finish.
“This is what we yearn for. Today we wanted three points and we got that.”
Motor Action coach Prince Matore, whose was relegated three weeks ago, was happy with the fighting spirit shown by his side.
“We started on a slow note but we have been improving with each and every game. Our last game is against Hwange and we would want to end our time in the league with a win,” said Matore.
