KUDA MUSHARU saved How Mine the blushes with a late goal in a lively Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match at Luveve yesterday.
Musharu’s strike ensured that honours remain between How Mine and Chapungu who seem not to know how to produce a winner.
This was the sixth draw between the two sides since Chapungu made a return to the top flight in 2014.
But yesterday, How Mine were staring defeat in the face until Musharu struck on the stroke of full time to cancel out Hillary Mugoniwa’s penalty.
Chapungu were awarded the spot kick on the hour mark. Kudzai Chideu and Tapiwa Kumbuyani combined to send Philip Marufu tumbling inside the box.
Chapungu coach John Nyikadzino was left wondering what his team needs to do to beat How Mine.
“I don’t know what it will take for us to beat How Mine, I felt we were close to making it today but unfortunately we gave away a soft goal. However, I am happy with the overall performance of the team.
“While How Mine were better in the first half, we came back a rejuvenated side and managed to get a goal through the penalty,” he said.
Nyikadzino’ opposite number Kelvin Kaindu felt it was two points dropped rather than one point gained.
“We were better than them for the better part of the match and I feel we should have used our dominance to register a victory.
“I am disappointed with the result because I was looking forward to getting maximum points,” he said.
