Gunners dent CAPS' title aspirations

[Posted 15 Jul 2011]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Bunjira"s presence on the bench failed to inspire CAPS to beat Gunners on Thursday

Moses Chunga will somehow feel relieved that he managed to frustrate his former paymasters CAPS United as he guided his second from the bottom club to a 0-0 draw against the Harare giants in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League tie at Lafarge Stadium on Thursday night.

The Thursday match marked Chunga's return to the club that gave him his first championship title as a coach two seasons ago. Bambo was relieved of his duties as CAPS' coach last month after a somehwta acrimonious relationship with a militant section of CAPS fans.

CAPS, now under the guidance of Maxwell Jongwe, wo is duly being assisted by former CAPS star striker Alois Bunjira struggled with their game on a bumpy stadium not suitable for PSL action.

Gunners missed chance after chance through out the match, and failed to punish the sloppy Green Machine outfit that struggled to click as a team, and Chunga is well aware that the draw amounts to two points missed rather a point collected.

“This was two points dropped because we were all over them the whole match, but we just came short in front of goal," reckoned Bambo.

Jongwe on the other end had every reason to appreciate the point gained, despite the negative impact it will have on the club's title aspirations, given the fact that the Harare giants were forced to play second fiddle to the PSL strugglers.

“I think the result is ok, at least there is a starting point. The boys tried very hard, but the pitch was very bad, it looks like a maize field, it’s very sandy.

"I think we will play better when we will meet them (Gunners) at Rufaro on Sunday because of the pitch and the commitment,” said Jongwe. 

Although Gunners pressed their opponents from the first whistle, the real chances were created in the second half.

In the 66th minute, lively midfielder Cliff Sekete's strike was only turned away from goal wheh it was deflected by a defender.

Two minutes later, Byron Madzokere and Hardlife Zvirekwi combined well but the former could head the latter's cross over the cross bar.

CAPS struggled with their game despite welcoming prodigal son Ashley Rambanepasi who was clearly short on match fitness.

The draw leaves CAPS on seventh place, with 22 points from 15 games, while Gunners remained perched on 15th place with 13 points from the same number of games as CAPS.

i think its now time for caps directors for them to comeup with an innovative idea if they want to regain their strength, to me i think there is no need for them to buy players but to groome youngsters maybe they archive something and all those old horses must leave for good becoz they are there to spoil our team dream
