CHUNGWA ON COURSE
STANFORD “Stix” Mutizwa believes there are slim chances that CAPS United striker Dominic Chungwa will be stopped from winning the 2017 Castle Lager Premiership golden boot.
The Black Rhinos coach however said they have not stopped encouraging their striker Lot Chiunga from staging a miracle on the last day of action.
Chungwa is on 16 goals while Chiunga has 12.
“We are encouraging him to try and score as many as he can on the last day of action against Tsholotsho.
Anything is possible in football.
“But we know it’s a bit late for him at this stage of the season. He has however done very well scoring those 12 goals.
“He was coming from division one last year and adapting to the Premiership was always going to be very difficult,” Stix said.
The CAPS United striker, Chungwa, has an impressive game-to-goals ratio and favourite to stay on the top or even add one or two goals in their last match.
Chiunga started on a bright note but when the goals dried up, the club also started to struggle.
“When we started to lose matches, his confidence and that of the team was also gone. We had to try and make sure that they were in the right frame of mind. Eventually we turned the corner,” said the Rhinos coach.
The army side struggled in the second half of the season.
“We started very well and then in the second half it was a different story. We have learned our lessons and I’m sure that will help us a lot next season,” he said.
