FOLLOWING their 2-0 triumph over Bulawayo City on Wednesday, Chicken Inn are now through to the Chibuku Super Cup with one game to play in their group.
Gamecocks went into the match leading the Group B table with seven points and they only needed to get maximum points to secure their passage into the next stage.
Impressive Clive Dzingai and Brian Muza struck deep into the second half to condemn a determined City to a painful defeat. From four games, City have only managed to amass a single point.
“Well done to the boys. We played well but we showed that we are still rusty and we are not up to speed. I think we almost dominated the game for a long time but we suffered with our creativity. When we made changes in the second half things started happening for us. It’s good to get into the quarter-finals of the Chibuku Cup because we have always struggled in this contest so we are happy about it,” said Chicken Inn head coach Joey Antipas.
His opposite number Philani “Beefy” Ncube” said: “The only thing that they (Chicken Inn) did was to score. We went down courtesy of our own mistakes and it’s work in progress. We say thank you to Chibuku for giving us this run.”
On Thursday, Chibuku Super Cup defending champions Highlanders have a date against Bulawayo Chiefs at Barbourfields Stadium.
Bosso will be without the services of inured Adrian Silla, Devine Mhindirira and Muziwakhe Dlamini.
