Harare City. . . . . .0
Black Rhinos . . . .0
HARARE CITY coach Mark Harrison gave his son Ryan a Castle Lager Premier League debut and the big goalie delivered a clean sheet. However, Harrison was disappointed that his team walked out of Rufaro with just a point.
“I am pleased it’s a clean sheet for him,” said Harrison on his son’s first league appearance. But you know I will look at the bigger picture. I know what Ryan can do and have no problems in playing him.
“But the bigger picture, the bigger picture of 90 minutes is worrying. I didn’t think we really turned up.
“You got to give credit to Rhinos, they pressed us for 80 minutes probably and they made life difficult for us from the start. They didn’t give us any room. They came with that plan and were successful with it.”
City’s Malvern Gaki missed the chance of the game in the 65th minute, shooting straight at the outdrawn keeper Ashley Reyners after being set up by Kuda Musharu.
Black Rhinos coach Herbert Maruwa welcomed the point.
“It was a good show by the boys. They fought for every ball it’s only that we didn’t get a goal. At least we are creating chances and I am sure it’s a matter of time before we start scoring more goals,” he said.
“It’s encouraging going three games without conceding a goal, it shows we are getting there since we are still trying new combinations.”
