HOW Mine are the new leaders of the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League after beating Buffaloes 2-1 at Sakubva Stadium on Thursday.

The Bulawayo side scored through Mernard Mupera in the 52nd minute, who converted from the penalty spot after Buffaloes defender Petros Matizanadzo handled inside the box.

It was 2-0 two minutes later when Benjamin Marere received a pass from Edwin Muzanenhamo and his shot from an acute angle took a nasty bump and beat goalkeeper Blessing Mwandimutsira.

Buffaloes clawed their way back into the match in the 67th minute when Moses Gutu’s grounder found the back of the net but How Mine held on for a crucial away win after they had dropped two points against Harare City in Bulawayo last weekend.

The win saw them move top with 21 points, one ahead of Highlanders who face Triangle at Gibbo on Sunday and Hwange and Dynamos, who clash in the battle of the weekend at the Colliery on the same day.

Luke Masomere, the Buffaloes coach, bemoaned the number of wasted chances.

“We played well, but when you don’t score you can’t win a match,” said the coach.

“We created a number of chances that we did not convert and we need to beef up our squad especially in the strike force when the transfer window opens.”

How Mine boss Philani Ncube was grateful for the three points on a bumpy pitch.

“We managed to grab three points but we did not play well due to the state of the pitch. But otherwise I am happy with the win,” Ncube, the 2008 Coach of the Year said.
