HWANGE FC produced a stunning comeback from two goals down to beat FC Platinum 3-2 in a thrilling Castle Lager Premiership football match at Mandava on Saturday.

Mitchelle Katsvairo’s goal and a penalty converted by Qadr Amini gave Platinum a two goal cushion before the breather.

Hwange pulled one back in the 54th minute when Aleck Marite headed in from a corner.

Warriors defender Eric Chipeta's corner hit the nets leaving Platinum goalkeeper Talbert Shumba embarrassed in the 78th minute. The goal put the miners at par, 2-2.

Then Marime had the last laugh against his former paymasters when Chipeta delivered another free kick that the Platinum defenders failed to clear and he pounced for the third goal.

Last year's runners up Harare City suffered their second defeat of the season when they went down 2-1 to former champions Caps United at Gwanzura Stadium.

Moses Muchenje and Dominic Chungwa scored for the Green Machine while William Mandondo scored for the city fathers.
Last week, City were mauled 3-0 by Chicken Inn.

How Mine's miserable hangover from the Caf Confederation Cup continued when they were humbled 3-1 by Bantu Rovers in a Bulawayo Derby played at Luveve stadium.

Goals from Nqobizitha Masuku, Lawson Nkomo and an own goal from Nyasha Mukumbi condemned the gold miners to their second consecutive defeat.

Substitute Timothy January scored for How Mine who also had Morris Kadzola sent off for a dangerous foul on Zephaniah Ngodzo.
