Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here - Allen Khu­malo Sports Reporter

CHI­WORORO coach, Lloyd Mun­hanga, has vowed to fight to the end of the Zifa Bu­l­awayo Prov­ince Di­vi­sion Two League ti­tle de­spite fall­ing 0-2 to LG Vul­tures at Iminyela on Satur­day.

Chi­wororo, who had gone for a re­mark­able 12-match un­beaten streak, suf­fered their third loss of the sea­son on match day 23.

De­spite the loss, Chi­wororo re­main at the top of the league ta­ble with 48 points, two ahead of sec­ond placed Ajax Hot­spurs.

“It’s just un­for­tu­nate that we lost the match this week­end. We missed a lot of chances through­out the match and we got pun­ished for that.

“LG Vul­tures were a bet­ter team be­cause they showed char­ac­ter and fought to the end,” Mun­hanga said.

“The fact that we are at the top of the ta­ble has put us un­der pres­sure. Most of our boys come from the ju­nior ranks and I think we have been ask­ing a lot from them than they could han­dle.

“From now on, we are just go­ing to en­joy our game, pre­pare the boys psy­cho­log­i­cally be­cause we don’t in­tend to lose any match re­gard­less of who our op­po­nents are,” said Mun­hanga.

Ophias Banda failed to thrust Chi­wororo ahead from the penalty spot and they were pun­ished when goal­keeper Deon Charimeyi failed to deal with an easy ball from Tawanda Zi­naka and it slipped through his hands into the nets.

Mpumelelo Ncube scored the sec­ond when Charimeyi punched a free kick straight at the striker to slot home.

Chi­wororo’s next match is against Arenel Movers. -@khumza­llen
