GUNNERS coach Moses Chunga continued with his winning streak after his charges came from behind to beat Zimbabwe Saints in a Castle Lager premiership match at Lafarge yesterday.
Striker Evans Rusike’s powerful strike from the edge of the box in the fifth minute had given Chunga’s boys an early scare but Leonard Fiyado equalised in the 28th minute with Michelle Katsvairo getting the winner nine minutes from time.
The win saw Chunga winning the battle of wits, pitting two former Warriors greats with the former expressing displeasure in the manner in which his charges won the match.
“I have mixed feelings over the match. Though I am happy that we collected maximum points, I am not happy with the way we won the match. We played in bits and pieces as the players underrated Saints,” he said after the match.
His opposite number, Chawanda said everyone has to work hard to ensure that the team survives relegation.
“I believe we have the squad to survive the chop. We made silly mistakes which cost us the game. I believe it is now time that everyone from the players, technical team and the administrators work very hard.” Gunners wore black armbands, in honour of the late retired army General Solomon Mujuru, who was buried at Heroes Acre yesterday.
