Chapungu now sit on 10 points after five games.

Yesterday the visiting side, Mushowani started the game on the front-foot with some promising moves.

Forward Clemence Zimondi deservedly set them on their way with a cool finish after four minutes.

Their lead only lasted until the 15th minute when Edington Chirape levelled the score, connecting home a pin-point pass from Nigel Hunga.

Chapungu then seized control of the match after they were awarded a penalty when Mushowani captain Clive Dzingayi handled the ball in the box on the half hour mark.

Allen Tavariswa made no mistake to thrust the hosts ahead.

Chapungu had a rather cagey second half, as they sat deep in their own half protecting what they had.

“Thank God we scored the important goals, but I was not impressed with the team’s perfomance because we were always playing second fiddle to Mushowani, said Chapungu coach Rodwell

“They (Mushowani) are a good side, but tough luck. For us now the target is to keep this form and I know it will not be easy, but we will fight.”
