Cornered ... Caps striker Dominic Chungwa

CAPS United coach Mark Mathe has admitted he is feeling the pressure after his side were held once again to a goalless draw by basement club Dongo Saw Mill in a Castle Lager Premiership tie at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.

Mathe believes an element of misfortune was contributing to the team's lacklustre show.

The Green Machine wasted countless chances once again to allow Dongo to snatch a point at home after a 0-0 stalemate.

“I must say that we are disappointed. I think there is an element of misfortune. We are doing everything right but the goals are just not coming,” said Mathe.

“We need to keep our heads high and we will get it right. If we keep our heads low we will sink. As a coach I have to take the flake but I am doing my job properly only that the goals are not coming,” he added.

“The pressure that I am under is because we are doing everything right but results are not coming.  Everyone is watching, the management is watching but the results are not coming.  But it’s a question of time and we need to psyche up the players and we will get it right,” he said.

Mathe defended his striking duo of Dominic Chungwa and Leonard Tsipa, saying they were among the best strikers in the land.

He said their bid for a top four finish would depend on how quick they got the goals.

“In my opinion, the best attacking combination in the land is Leonard Tsipa and Dominic Chungwa, Takesure Chinyama and Rodreck Mutuma and Obadiah Tarumbwa and Knox Mutizwa.

“We are still hopeful of a top four finish but that will depend on how quick we get the goals,” said a dejected Mathe.

His opponent Shadreck Mugurasawe was happy with the result.

“I think it’s a fair result, to come and get a draw away from home is a fair result. They (Caps United) had their chances which they failed to score and we also had our chances and failed to score.

It’s a fair result for us. We are confident of surviving relegation,” Mugurasave, Dongo boss, said.

Caps United remained stuck on seventh position with 30 points while Dongo also remained at the foot of the table with 14 points.
