ZPC Kariba's Sunday Chidzambwa Having Tough PSL Ride

The only point Chidzambwa has picked out of a maximum 21 points was a goalless draw away to Tsholotsho Pirates.

Former Warriors and Black Leopards coach Sunday Chidzambwa continues to find the going tough in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League.

Chidzambwa, formerly known as Sunday Marimo, on Sunday succumbed to his sixth defeat in seven Castle Lager Premier Soccer League games that he has been in charge of as ZPC Kariba after his Katuruturu side conceded a last minute goal to lose 2-1 to Dynamos.

The only point Chidzambwa has picked out of a maximum 21 points was a goalless draw away to Tsholotsho Pirates but the coach blamed what he called amateurish defending after Roderick Mutuma grabbed the Dynamos winner deep in injury time.

Chidzambwa says he is very disappointed by the result.

The defeat has seen last season’s runners-up drop to 12th position, just one slot above the relegation zone while Dynamos have moved up to third, five points behind leaders Chicken Inn who are on 37 points.

Dynamos coach Tonderayi Ndiraya paid tribute to his players saying they fought until the last minute of the game and deserved the last gasp winner.

Chicken Inn maintained their top of the table position with a 2-0 spanking of Chapungu while Triangle stayed just two points after their 2-0 away win over Tsholotsho Pirates.

The Pirates are in trouble as they occupy the last relegation position with 16 points from 18 matches, the same as ZPC Kariba.

However, the biggest casualties of the weekend were How Mine who were thumped 5-1 by neighbours Highlanders. How Mine dropped significantly from third to sixth while Highlanders now occupy eighth position with 25 points.

However, coach Bongani Mafu feels Bosso should be at the top of the leaderboard.

Also smiling were the Green Machine of Caps United who were 1-0 winners over Flame Lilly. The Green Machine have been inconsistent since the departure of Mark Harrison but this time they were celebrating.

One of their fans Last Mutemangira could not hide his delight.

In rugby,the Sables dream of a first Africa Cup title in three years went up in smoke after the Zimbabweans were humiliated 80-6 by World Cup-bound Nambia over the weekend.

The Sables, however, will take comfort in the fact that they will retain their place in Africa Cup Group 1A next year by virtue of reaching this year’s final.
