VISITORS Triangle ended Herentals’ brief resurgence when second half goals by Gerald Bhero and Collins Dhuwa brought the hosts down to earth in a Castle Lager Premiership encounter at the National Sports Stadium yesterday.
Herentals had beaten CAPS United and Harare City before the league took a break.
Bhero latched on to a rebound off Timothy January’s 46th minute shot. The shot had crashed against the bar, bounced back into the field and the alert former Nichruit right back was on hand to finish it off from close range.
Triangle Coach, Taurayi Mangwiro, showered praises on his charges.
“This was a very crucial three points for us and we need to continue so that we cover for the poor run in which we lost four consecutive games.
“Today we were up against a team that had dominated us twice. Obviously it was going to be tough.
“We said let us show some respect, not fear. We survived the early onslaught. We could have won even more comfortably,” said Mangwiro.
Meanwhile, Black Rhinos coach Herbert Maruwa believes his side is still in the championship race despite being held 0-0 by relegation-threatened Yadah as Premiership action returned at Rufaro yesterday.
Chauya Chipembere are unbeaten in seven matches and remain on fourth position with 23 points, four points shy of log leaders FC Platinum.
Yadah, who are 16th on the table, took the point as a positive step in their bid to evade demotion.
