Fungai Muderere in BULAWAYO
FORMER Castle Lager Premier Soccer League champions Chicken Inn FC once again dropped crucial points when they were held to a 1-1 draw by a visiting Greenfuel FC at Luveve yesterday.
This was the Gamecocks 15th draw of the season.
They last registered a win on October 18 when they thumped ZPC Kariba 4-0 at the same venue.
Gamecocks head coach Prince Matore was a dejected man.
“It’s very a disappointing result after dominating the match.
“Everything was okay but when you are defending, you have to make sure.
“If you look at the way we conceded, it was just a poke from a player that was not picked by our defenders.
“We could have got a cushion goal. The boys definitely did not do what we told them to do.”
Malvin Hwata thrust Chicken Inn into the lead in the 50th minute, courtesy of a lovely tap-in with his right foot after getting to an end of a Xolani Ndlovu fine delivery from the left flank.
Greenfuel substitute Naison Takawira, who was introduced in the 79th minute for Tinotenda Mutyambizi, got the all-important equaliser for the visitors right at the stroke of full-time.
“We are not yet safe from relegation and we are very happy for this point that we picked up,” said Greenfuel coach Rodwell Dhlakama.
“We have greatly improved as a club.
“With three games remaining, we need to keep working hard. It’s better to pick a point than to lose a match.”
