TRIANGLE United captain Ralph Kawondera has told his teammates not to be carried away by their win away at Azam in the CAF Confederation Cup on Sunday.
Taurai Mangwiro’s men now go into the second leg carrying a vital away goal after a 1-0 win, but Kawondera insists the result need to be complemented by a good fight at home.
The midfield workhorse said though the win boosted them going forward, they need to keep their cool and take each game as it comes.
“The win means a lot to us, it boosted our confidence but I think we should not get carried away.
“We should not think that we are through by carrying that away goal because it’s still game on,” said Kawondera.
Triangle went into the match coming from two defeats in a row to Manica Diamonds and Black Rhinos and Kawondera said they were desperate for the win.
“We went into the match coming from a bad spell and we wanted that win. We wanted a positive result to boost our confidence.
“Now we have to shift focus to the next game and treat it as a completely new game,” he said.
Kawondera, who scored for Lowveld side in Tanzania, reckons they have done an amazing job which he attributed to teamwork.
“It also feels good to score for the team; I think we have done quite well. We have done an amazing job winning away from home but we need to keep our feet on the floor and act with humility seeing how each game comes for us because every game is completely different,” he said.
Kawondera also knows that fortune can easily change in football.
They had the finest run locally so far – going for 14 games in all competitions without a defeat which was followed by back-to-back defeats.
And it is such things in football that Kawondera wants his teammates to be wary of.
