Elvis Moyo was on target again for champions FC Platinum in their 2-2 draw against Mushowani Stars at Rufaro on Monday.
Moyo scored an opener in the 37th minute before Evans Katema equalized through a penalty when Gift Bello had a handball in the box.
Mushowani took the lead in the 65th minute and was cancelled by Never Tigere a minute later.

“I think it was a good game of football and we had our moments where I think we were a better team.
“And I think what changed is that time they got a penalty and I think it was only six, minutes to go to the break.

“But I think we didn’t create enough chances in the second half. We just need to work more I think in the final third in terms of creativity.
“But well done to my boys we have to work hard and prepare for our game against Hwange on Saturday,” he said.

“Mushowani are a good side, I think I have said it before I’ve watched them play against Dynamos and they played well and it was unfortunate that they conceded those two goals.
“But today you can see that they had numbers at the back and like I said they were just waiting to hit us on the break.”
“But they had their tactics and you saw what the goal but at the end of the day I can’t complain about that. Their goalkeeper was going down and it’s part of the game because every club and each and every team has got different tactics.
“If they feel like they wanted a point and the goalkeeper has to go down, that’s part of football.
“But I think it is good for us as coaches and for the referees as well to learn from those thing because if you watch football in England at the moment you see five or seven minutes.
“I think here we still have to learn,
