CAPS United coach Lloyd Chitembwe admitted that his side had a very bad performance on Sunday.

The Green Machine lost 2-1 to Ngezi Platinum Stars in a Match-day 16 encounter played at National Sports Stadium.

Speaking after the game, the gaffer said: “I think we had a very poor performance by our standards. I thought a lot of things went wrong today. Our build-ups were not so good.

“You would want the team to consolidate on the gains of the previous match and if you don’t seem to consolidate on the previous gains then you can become very worried.

“It’s disappointing last week we had a very good game and going into this game I thought maybe the boys just took Ngezi Platinum for a ride, that’s my thinking.”

Ngezi took the lead in the 22nd minute through Donald Teguru who scored from a close range before Tichaona Mabvura doubled the lead on minute 43 with a low drive from outside the box.

CAPS United pulled one back on the stroke of the interval through Hardlife Zvirekwi. However, the goal did little to complete a comeback and it ended in a defeat for the Harare giants.
