CAPS United coach Lloyd Chitembwe believes his boys did all they could to get a result against Highlanders in a goalless draw at Barbourfields yesterday.
The result meant that that the giant between the two giants and log leaders Ngezi Platinum have widened.
Ngezi Platinum are now on 32 points, Bosso are third with 22 points while CAPS United are on 17 points.
Chitembwe said despite the fact that both teams created good chances, a “draw was a fair result”.
“I think both teams gave it a go. I think it was a very good game and we anticipated that.
“There were so many chances and Highlanders were doing very well. I’m sure he has done well with the boys,” Chitembwe said.
“We anticipated that and we knew it was not going to be easy for us. I’m satisfied by the performance by my guys. They really matched the expectations in terms of the desire.”
CAPS United for a change kept a clean sheet but they will need to score goals to start collecting maximum points again.
“Sometimes you create a lot of opportunities but when you look at how the boys played, you can’t really find fault on them for anything.
“I thought we should have had an advantage going into the second half considering the amount of effort the boys did put, especially during the last moments of the first half.
“I also think they equally had good opportunities. At the end of the day, I think a draw was a fair result,” said Chitembwe.
