Sikhumbuzo Moyo in Victoria Falls
BULAWAYO City are now 90 minutes away from making a quick return into the Premier Soccer League after grinding a result against a determined Mosi Rovers in a Zifa Southern Region Division One match played at Chinotimba Stadium yesterday.
An eighth minute scrambled goal by on fire Cannan Nkomo was all that fans witnessed although both teams had some goal scoring opportunities. Watched by club board members Horace Ndubiwa and Ernest ‘‘Maphepha” Sibanda as well as five Zifa councillors, Amakhosi gallantly defended their slender lead with the defence of experienced Zephania Ngodzo and Zibusiso Sibanda standing firm.
“As we have always said, we are playing each game as a cup final and grinding results which is what we did today. We played a very tactical game and the boys stuck to our game plan. We now need to wrap up the campaign with a win next week, we remain fully focused to achieve that,” said Try Ncube.
His opposite number Mandlenkosi Moyo expressed his disappointment at the loss as his boys played extremely well.
“Look, football is about goals and that lucky goal was all that made the difference. It’s unfortunate that we had to lose like this,” said Moyo.
City’s closest rivals, Talen Vision won 2-1, taking the race to the final game of the season, with City at the top of the log.
