Ndlovu looked a relieved man after the match and believes his charges had been unlucky in not winning as they had been playing well.
He said it was a sweet reward for their efforts and he declared a miracle is possible for them to win their remaining matches and climb out of the relegation zone.
“I think we have been doing well and playing good football. “It’s only that results have eluded us. “In our last game against Shabanie, we played well but made a mistake and they scored. Luckily we leveled the scores but we could not win it.
“It was reward for the hard work the boys have been putting in and I believe more wins are in store for us. We can win all the remaining games. Like I said before, I won’t give up until the last match of the season. The spirit is there, the unity is there, we can go all the way,” he said.

Ngezi’s coach, Tonderai Ndiraya bemoaned the ‘small team syndrome’ that has seen them lose to so-called small teams while shining against the ‘big’ teams.
He blamed the players’ approach when facing minnows, saying they adopted a wrong mentality.
Ndiraya however gave credit to Bulawayo City, saying they worked hard to defend the goal.
