Tonderai Ndiraya was left counting the losses after Ngezi Platinum dropped two crucial points after being held to a 2-2 draw at home by Chicken Inn.
Ngezi Platinum looked like they were on course to claiming three points early into the match when Clive Augusto put them ahead but goals from Darryl Nyandoro and Collins Dhuwa saw the platinum miners needing an equaliser from Partson Jaure to snatch a point.
“ We let it slip from our hands. We were our own worst enemies because after working for our goal, we gave in soft goals. The defenders didn’t track the Chicken Inn players and also the keeper was caught napping,” said Ndiraya.
The draw saw Ngezi Platinum dropping to third position, swapping places with Dynamos who beat Bulawayo City 2-0. Despite the draw,Ndiraya believes they are still within a chance.
“ Its difficult but now we have to take the bull by its horns. We don’t have an option,we just have to go there and try to have maximum points. We must get a win if we are entertaining hopes of lifting the title”.
Ngezi Platinum will host Triangle at Baobab stadium in their last game of the season.
