MARTIN VENGESAYI’s first half-brace ensured victory for Harare City over Chicken Inn in a premiership tie at Rufaro on Saturday.

The Sunshine Boys dismissed a disjointed Chicken Inn to ease pressure on coach, Taurai Mangwiro, who lost the season opener to new boys Tsholotsho FC.

Vengesayi opened his account after only nine minutes when he outpaced Chicken Inn central defenders — Moses Jackson and Lawrence — before slotting the ball past a diving Elvis Chipezeze.

He completed his brace just before the half time whistle, turning his marker before firing home.

Chicken Inn, who only had two shots on target, were reduced to ten men in the 86th minute when second half substitute David Temwanjira was sent off following a second bookable offence.

Mangwiro, who made four changes to the team that fell to Tsholotsho FC, heaved a huge sigh of relief after the final whistle, admitting a loss would have been a disaster.

“We definitely needed to win this one. It’s good that we have picked our first set of points. I had to make a few adjustments here and there in reaction to that defeat.

“I think it will take five or six games for the team to play at the level that I want it to play, but we should be picking up the points in the process,” said Mangwiro.

Chicken Inn coach Joey Antipas, whose Denmark based son — Quincy — was watching from the stands, saluted Harare City.

“We’ve got to give City the credit, they were quick in attack and I would like to wish them all the best in the season.

“I thought we played well in the second half though and we have ourselves to blame for those two goals,” he said.


Saturday: Harare City 2-0 Chicken Inn FC (Rufaro), Chapungu 0-1 Dynamos (Ascot), Buffaloes 1-1 Triangle (Vengere), Flame Lily 1-1 WhaWha (Gwanzura)

Sunday: Dongo Sawmill 1-2 How Mine (Vengere), Caps United 1-0 FC Platinum (NSS), Tsholotsho FC 0-1 Highlanders (Barbourfields), Hwange 3-3 ZPC Kariba (Colliery)
