Unpredictable Harare Giants Caps United beat Chicken 2-1 In Bulawayo courtesy of goals by Joel Ngodzo and Wisdom Mutasa yesterday.
Goal minder Prosper Chigumba was probably the reason why CAPS United went home with three points in the bag as he produced heroic saves that kept the Gamecocks at bay earning his side’s crucial three points.
Ngodzo opened the scoring after converting a penalty following a foul on Mutasa edge of the box.
Mutasa went on to put his name on the scoresheet on the stroke of half-time, tapping in from a close range.
The Gamecocks pulled one back ten minutes into the second period through Innocent Muchaneka. They tried to get the equaliser but could not find it as the Green Machine keeper Chigumba denied them on several occasions.
The match ended 1-2 in favour of Makepekepe.
