Chapungu 1-1 Harare City

CHAPUNGU maintained their unbeaten home run on Friday when they played out a one-all draw against Harare City at Ascot Stadium in Gweru.

However, the hosts needed a late equaliser from Rodwell Mhlanga in the 86th minute to salvage a point after City had taken the lead through Agrippa Murimba in the 19th minute.

Murimba’s goal was his third in two matches after scoring a double against Bantu Rovers on Monday.

The draw was enough to move Chapungu two places up into eighth place with 15 points from 12 matches on the league table.

City also benefited from the share of spoils as they rose one rung into 12th place with 11 points, courtesy of a superior goal difference from Black Rhinos.

On target again ... Agrippa Murimba put Harare City in the lead early in the first half

After the draw City coach Bigboy Mawiwi said his charges were on course after a difficult start to the season, characterised by seven straight losses.

“We controlled the match in the first half and we had a number of chances to add to that goal but we could not convert. But I am happy that we are on course,” said Mawiwi.

“They (Chapungu) played long balls in the second half and eventually we were caught by that free kick and we should not have conceded that goal.

“I don’t want to talk about the referees, my job is to look at the players and not match officials.”

Chapungu coach John Nyikadzino was not impressed.

“We struggled right from the start and we were lucky we did not concede any more goals until we got that equaliser.”

Mhlanga, a double scorer in their 3-0 drubbing of Caps United two weeks ago, was first to a free kick and beat a badly positioned goalkeeper Max Nyamupanedengu to the near post.
