CHICKEN INN Inn consolidate their lead at the top of the Castle Lager Premiership standings on Saturday with a hard fought 2-1 win over Chapungu at Ascot Stadium.

A 35-metre screamer from Danny Phiri in the 90th minute saw the Gamecocks get their first ever win at Ascot and a crucial one for that matter on a day that defending champions were stuttering to a 1-1 draw at ZPC Kariba.

Chicken Inn now lead the standings with 29 points after nine wins, two draws and two losses heading into a two-week break while Dynamos have 23 points.

Chapungu had taken the lead in the 25th minute when Moses Jackson in an attempt to clear saw his effort ricochet off Allan Tavarwisa, beating a badly positioned Elvis Chipezeze to give the advantage to the host.

Edmore Chirambadare restored parity in the 57th minute after George Majika weaved past the Chapungu defence and squared the ball to Chirambadare, who fired home from close range beating a diving Roy Mazingi in goal for Chapungu.

It was Chirambadare’s eighth goals of the season.

Chapungu were reduced to 10-men when Blessing Zabula was given matching orders by referee Allen Basvi after accumulating two yellow cards.

The win left Chicken Inn coach Joey Antipas was clearly a happy man after seeing his charges come from a goal down to claim all three points.

“It was a tale of two halves as we were trailing but we stormed back in the second half and managed to dismantle them.

“I am happy with the good form that we are enjoying as well as being on top of the log though it is too early to talk about the championship,” said Antipas.

At Nyamhunga, Dynamos needed a late equaliser from Farai Mupasiri five minutes from time to snatch a point from ZPC.

The hosts had taken the lead through Tsepo Ranthokoane in the 34th minute.

This was Dynamos’ third draw in a row after playing 0-0 against Tsholotsho at Rufaro and needed a last minute equaliser from Ocean Mushure last week in the 1-1 draw against Triangle at the National Sports Stadium.

Said under fire Dynamos coach David Mandigora after the match: “A point is better but I am not happy that we have lost six points in the last three games.

“ZPC Kariba were the better side but credit to the boys for knowing that football is played until the final whistle.”

The result also means Dynamos have failed to ZPC Kariba in three league matches since 2014 after losing 1-0 and 2-1 last season.

RESULTS

Saturday: Chapungu 1-2 Chicken Inn, ZPC Kariba 1-1 Dynamos

Sunday: Highlanders 1-1 How Mine, Hwange 1-1 FC Platinum, Triangle 2-0 Tsholotsho, Caps United 0-0 Flame Lilly
