Tri­an­gle edge Chicken Inn

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Os­car Rusenga in Tri­an­gle

Tri­an­gle FC 1 - 0 Chicken Inn HARDLIFE Mavundi’s sec­ond half strike sent Tri­an­gle through to the Chibuku Su­per Cup quar­ter-fi­nals af­ter they edged Chicken Inn at Gibbo yes­ter­day.

The game was played un­der rare chilly con­di­tions in the lowveld but the home side ad­justed well and al­most took the lead in the 12th minute when Mavundi set up Mar­vel­lous Mukumba whose ef­fort flew just inches over the bar.

Chicken Inn coach Rah­man Gumbo made a first half tac­ti­cal sub­sti­tu­tion, in­tro­duc­ing Ni­cholas Muchadeyi for Physwell Mad­hazi, in the 33rd minute but Tri­an­gle con­tin­ued to dom­i­nate the mid­field.

The vis­i­tors got the best chance on the hour mark but vet­eran striker Oba­diah Tarumbwa drove his ef­fort wide af­ter a clever pass from Cle­mence Matawu.

“How can you dom­i­nate the game like this for ninety min­utes and fail to win, It’s the same story of be­ing in con­trol of the game and end up los­ing?” said Gumbo.

“We have another game (league) on Thurs­day and I think it’s high time we give fresh play­ers a chance to play.”

Tri­an­gle coach David Mandig­ora was a happy man af­ter fi­nally win­ning a game.

“I am happy for the boys who worked hard for it, it’s also a re­lief be­cause we lost four games in a row and it’s good for the team,” he said.
