DEFEATED ZPC Kariba coach Saul Chaminuka is crying foul accusing the Premier Soccer League (PSL) of playing a part in their defeat to Caps United on Sunday.

The defeat handed rivals Dynamos the championship and Chaminuka is not happy that the PSL ordered that their match be moved from the National Sports Stadium to Gwanzura.

"I don't know why the PSL refused to have the match played at the National Sports Stadium,” said Chaminuka.

“Everyone knows this was the biggest match and there were a lot of disturbances.

“These disturbances contributed to our defeat because we could have scored at least one goal during those disturbances. I am crying foul because of the time we lost.”

There were brief stoppages of the game as Caps United fans, who did not want Dynamos to win the championship, booed their own players.

Some of the supports even threw missiles onto the pitch targeting their own players when they were on the offensive to stop them scoring. They celebrated every good move by ZPC Kariba and all their two goals.

ZPC Kariba eventually lost 3-2 to Caps United at Gwanzura on Sunday in a game which they needed at least a draw to clinch their maiden league title.

With Dynamos handing How Mine a 2-0 defeat across town at the National Sports Stadium, it meant ZPC Kariba's dream had been shattered.

First half goals from skipper Tapiwa Khumbuyani, Honey Chimutimunzeve and Ishmael Thindwa helped Caps United finish in third place on the table with 53 points while Limited Chikafa and Moses Makanje scored for ZPC Kariba.
