CAPS United have moved to the top of the Castle Lager Premiership after a 3-1 win over Border Strikers at Dulivhadzimu Stadium this afternoon.

CAPS United were on the attack from the start and it was a matter of time till the deadlock was broken.

Leonard Tsipa scored the opener with a diving header as the veteran striker tightened the grip as the league’s top goal scorer.

The lead was short lived as Border Striker bounced back immediately when Farai Mususunye beat CAPS United goalkeeper Jorum Muchambo.

Border Striker struggled to threaten CAPS in the second half as the away side dominated play. Tafadzwa Rusike wrapped up the win when he came of the bench to score the third in the 88th minute.

The result sees CAPS United move two points clear of FC Platinum with only four matches to play.
