CAPS United coach Lloyd Chitembwe says he is proud of his team which had gone for six games without a defeat before Chapungu stopped them on Thursday.

Makepekepe suffered their first defeat of the season at the hands of the Airforce side in a rescheduled Match-day 3 encounter, losing 2-1 at National Sports Stadium.

The result saw them slumping to the second position and now separated from new leaders Chapungu by the number of goals scored this season.

Speaking after the game, Chitembwe said: “We knew that one day we will lose a game, and this is one result that, I will take with pride having gone for six games (unbeaten) with good five wins.

“There was a lapse of concentration though, but at the same time the performances were excellent.”

Gabriel Nyoni opened the scoring in the 19th minute with a brilliant strike inside the box, but the lead was cancelled by Brighton Mugoni who netted on the stroke of half-time before Patrick Khumbula grabbed the winner for the visitors two minutes into the second period.
