Byo City rue missed chances


HARARE – Bulawayo City coach Mandla “Lulu” Mpofu was disappointed with how his side missed chances in yesterday’s goalless draw with CAPS United.

A win for Amakhosi could have seen then make a significant step away from the drop zone and secure their Castle Lager Premiership status for next season.

City remain on the last relegation spot with 36 points leaving Mpofu to bank on their last game of the season against Division One-bound Bantu Rovers next weekend and hope results elsewhere go their way.

“I think we have to build on this point for our next game against Bantu Rovers where hopefully we can get three points and see what happens,” Mpofu said.

“We just have to appreciate the fighting spirit of the boys but again I’m not happy with all the missed opportunities we had today.”

Amakhosi were the more determined side yesterday as they created a number good scoring chances but were let down by poor finishing.

Their closest chance fell to midfielder Rainsome Pavari but his shot crashed against the cross bar in the 87th minute with goalkeeper Edmore Sibanda well beaten.   

CAPS were off colour yesterday as they failed to get into top gear.

The defending champions’ first shot on target came in the 67th minute when Devon Chafa’s meek shot from the edge of the box went straight into Ndodana Sibanda’s hands.

Makepekepe assistant coach Mark Mathe said: “It was a difficult game; we didn’t fare too well and I think we didn’t match Bulawayo City for desire. They wanted it more than us.”
