However, the Green Machine wrapped up the three points when Dominic Chungwa beat the Sugar Sugar Boys goalkeeper in the 83rd minute.
Speaking during a post-match press conference, Triangle coach Taurai Mangwiro saluted Makepekepe for their smartness in picking apart his boys on the break. Said Mangwiro:
Congratulations to CAPS United, they scored at the right moment and every time we were pressuring them, they came at us on the break and scored.
We did well as a team but also as a home side we expected to collect maximum points but I think CAPS United are doing well, it’s three crucial points lost for us.
Mangwiro’s opposite number, Caps United coach Lloyd Chitembwe had this to say:
To our anticipation the game was very difficult, we knew that in the second half they were going to come at us, they came at us and got a goal but we knew that we were going to catch them on the break and that is what we did and collecting maximum points on the road is fantastic.
