CAPS United assistant coach, Fungai Kwashi Tostao, has said the team is elated after their 1-0 win over ZPC Kariba at home at the National Sports Stadium in Harare on Sunday.
A 62nd minute Dominic Chungwa volley from just outside the area which hit the top right corner of the net was enough for the premier league champions as CAPS United registered their first premier league win in six matches.
“. . . we are elated by the win, but at the same time, we have to look forward to the next encounter against Tsholotsho, which is another tough game. The games are coming thick and fast now, we are grateful for the win, we are humbled by it, but we are not being carried away it as well,” Tostao told journalists after the match.
“Yeah, well done, glory to God, first things first, we have to give glory to the almighty. Even when we were winning last year, we still praised God, even when losing the past games, we are still praising God, so I want to say give thanks to God.”
16th placed CAPS United have registered 17 points from 14 matches winning four matches, drawing five and losing five. They have six games in hand.
“. . . I want to say big up to the lads as well, they fought brilliantly today, they gave everything for the club, they rent their hearts out. I think we deserved to win the game. If you look at statistics in the match, we had the most number of crosses, we created more chances, so it was just a matter of time before we got the breakthrough,” he added.
“First half we had about 13 crosses, it was just that touch into the back of the net (which had been missing). Well done to Dominic Chungwa for that brilliant strike. We are happy.
“The feeling, I don’t want to lie to you, it’s healthy; we are happy; we are jovial. You know, we had gotten used to winning every time, but in football, sometimes you have to go through a rough patch.”
