Black Mambas 4-1 Caps United

WINGER Nicholas Alifandika led the charge with a brace as Black Mambas eased their relation worries with an impressive 4-1 win against Caps United at Morris Depot on Saturday.

Caps United went into the match on a high after progressing to the semi-finals of the lucrative Mbada Diamonds Cup last Wednesday but suffered at the hands of an inspired Black Mambas.

United coach Taurai Mangwiro said the loss had effectively ended his side’s title hopes.

“We should not be over-ambitious, considering where we are coming from. Had we won I would say we would be in with a chance but now I think we are out of the race,” he said.

“Yes, there are still five games to play but we should not rely on other teams to do the job for us. Black Mambas were superior today and it was a day everything they touched turned into gold.”

Black Mambas assistant coach Martin Bonyongwe commended a “five star performance” by his side but said the fight was still on to avoid relegation.

“The win will do a lot of good to our survival but the fight continues. This should be the beginning of better performances to come,” he said.

Alifandika, who has had a nagging ankle injury this season, scored a his brace in the first half with Honey Chimutimunzeve and Last Chibwiro also on target for the policemen coached by one of their own, John “Toto” Ncube.

Benson Maglas scored the consolation for Caps United who could have made the score-line more respectable had Tawanda Nyamadwe and substitute striker Dominic Chungwa been more accurate in front of goal.
