CAPS United Extend Their Lead At The Top As Dynamos’ Winning Streak Ends
Dynamos Suffer First Defeat of 2023 Castle Lager Premiership Season
Dynamos, who were among the leading pack in the previous round, suffered their first defeat of the 2023 Castle Lager Premiership season, losing 2-3 to Bulawayo Chiefs on Sunday. The Glamour Boys dropped to seventh place on the table following the loss.
Subdued Display by Dynamos
The Herbert Maruwa-led charges showed a subdued display throughout the game, falling behind in the 17th minute through Mthokozisi Msebe’s effort. Frank Makarati restored parity ten minutes later after converting a controversial penalty. Chiefs disputed the awarding of the penalty as they felt Malvin Mkolo handled the ball outside the box. They left the pitch in protest before returning five minutes later.
Dynamos’ Disjointed Display
The action went to the break with both teams level, but it was the visitors who set another early pace in the second period when Felix Moyo restored Amakhosi’s lead just two minutes into the half. Dynamos completely became disjointed with Tendai Matindife single-handedly carrying the team in the following moments.
The midfielder even earned a goal, scoring the equalizer in the 80th minute, but his effort was in vain as Chiefs restored their lead seven minutes later through Danny Phiri. The game ended in favor of the away team, who moved out of the relegation zone.
CAPS United Maintain Top Spot
In Bulawayo, CAPS United played a goalless draw against Chicken Inn, keeping them on top of the table with twelve points. Chicken Inn picked up their fourth successive draw to take position number ten. In another fixture, Sheasham and Simba Bhora shared the spoils following a 1-1 draw.
Dynamos will be looking to bounce back from their first defeat of the season as they prepare for their next fixture. CAPS United will be hoping to continue their impressive run at the top of the table.
