WARRIORS coach Kalisto Pasuwa says he is worried about his charges’ wastefulness in Sunday’s 2016 Chan qualifier preliminary round, first leg 2-0 win over Comoros but believes they can finish off the islanders away in two weeks’ time.

Zimbabwe got the goals from Hwange winger Evans Rusike and FC Platinum’s Marshall Mudehwe to counter missing a glut of scoring chances that could have seen them win by half a dozen goals.

After Rusike scored, the Warriors promised a harvest of goals but forwards and midfielders took turns to fire blanks and had to thank substitute Mudehwe who beat the final whistle to record a two-goal margin as they now prepare to visit Comoros.

At some stages of the game, the Indian Ocean islanders appeared stubborn against Pasuwa’s side dominated by Under-23 players with only three senior players making it into the starting 11.

“I think we have to work more on our conversion because we created a lot of chances but failed to convert them into goals. That is worrisome at this level of the game,” Pasuwa said.

“We could have won by a very big margin but we were poor in our finishing. But I am however happy that we fielded more youngsters and they were playing against some players who are in their 30s.

“It shows the future is bright for us. Now we just have to prepare well for our visit to the Comoros.”

Pasuwa said they will not read too much into the advantage they carry into the return leg.

“For us 2-0 is a fair result although we could have done better,” said the coach.

“But that does not mean we should relax when we go there because they can upset us since they will be having home advantage.

“We will go there to defend our lead and I am sure we will finish well the job there,” he said.

Zimbabwe is bidding for a fourth straight appearance at Chan.
