CHISUMBANJE – Chisumbanje based outfit Greenfuel FC has played 11 games without a loss thereby firmly setting their eyes on promotion into Premier League come next season.
The Zifa Eastern Region Division One log leaders will also aim to maintain pole position when they travel to Marondera to fulfil their 12th fixture against Surrey FC this Saturday.
In an interview, coach Lloyd ‘Samaita’ Mutasa said his charges are guarding against complacency in their championship bid.
“We know we have a long way to go but promotion is possible as long as we do not underestimate any team in the league and keep working hard, having our feet on the ground. It is too early to talk much about promotion but it can be achieved. Getting into PSL is our mission.
Mutasa’s charges are at the top of the 16 team league with a total of 27 points from 11 matches.
Mutasa has guided his side to 8 wins, 3 draws and the team is yet to taste defeat.
The former Dynamos mentor is confident that his team will fare well against Surrey.
“One week break gave us time to prepare for this encounter. It’s every coach’s desire to win. I’m confident that I will pick up three points away to Surrey, ” he said.
Samaita who joined the ‘ethanol boys’ last year from now relegated Gweru outfit TelOne FC said that his team’s best game was against Masvingo based moneybags Wangu Mazodze.
“Our best game so far was the one we played against Wangu Mazodze and we beat them 4-1 in their own backyard. The boys played entertaining football that pushed the home supporters to support us,” he said.
The former Tanganda FC and Dynamos midfielder said his worst game was a draw at home against Ruwa.
” This is our worst game. We drew at home. We failed to score at home after having created a handful of chances,” he said.
Samaita is also working on beefing up his squad during the window period.
“We are most likely to beef up the squad in the second round since it is tougher than the first one. All departments need a player each. It will add competition and keep everyone on toes, ” said the soft spoken Samaita. https://chipingetimes.co.zw/
