KUDA Musharu netted a brace as How Mine crushed Chouni of Zanzibar 4-0 in the first leg, preliminary round of the Caf Confederation Cup at Barbourfields Stadium.

Captain Menard Mupera converted from the spot and Warren Dube added the fourth.

How Mine coach Philani "Beefy" Ncube was happy with the result, but lamented the poor condition of the pitch due to the heavy rains that have been pounding the city in the last two weeks continuously.

"I think we are in the right direction. As much as we wanted more goals we settled for four goals at this level. We need to go and do our homework for the next game," he said.

"(But) we have to be honest the pitch is very bad. I don't know what is happening. We need to improve by having another pitch reserved for such circumstances," Ncube said at the end of the match.

Chuoni coach Ali Abdalla Hassan blamed the defeat on the condition of the pitch.

"The ground was not good as you can see for yourself, but our team played well. The major problem is the ground,” he said.

“How Mine is a very good team. We respect them, but we also have a team which is very good."

Musharu fired past Chuoni goalkeeper Ahmed Ali Suliman in the 41st minute off a substitute Emmanuel Mandiranga pass. How Mine went two-up through a well-taken Mupera penalty after Musharu was brought down by

Ahmed Mohammed Sulum a minute after the breather.

Musharu rose above the rest in the 51st minute to head in a Mandiranga corner kick to register his second goal.

Dube then put the icing on the cake with the fourth goal in the 79th minute from a set piece just outside the penalty box.
