'Rooney' blow for Caps as Chitiyo ruled out of Mazembe return leg

CAPS United playmaker Ronald Chitiyo who created the crucial away goal in Lubumbashi, has been ruled out of the decisive African Champions League first round second leg qualifier against TP Mazembe on Sunday.

"Rooney" accumulated two yellow cards in the tournament.

The former Dynamos and Harare City midfielder was involved in the creation of the own goal by TP Mazembe in Lubumbashi last Sunday.

Caps United raced into the lead in the first half following an own goal by TP Mazembe defender Mpheko after Abbas Amidu had been set up by Chitiyo just a minute into the match. The lead, however, proved temporary as Zambian international Ranford Kabala levelled matters on nine minutes.

This means Caps United will now need at least a goalless draw in the return leg at the National Sports Stadium to go through to the lucrative group stage of the African Champions League. They will, however, have to go into battle without their star player.

Caps United have targeted qualification to the group stage, which comes with huge financial rewards.

TP Mazembe have enjoyed success against Zimbabwean opposition, having upstaged Dynamos 2-1 in the Lubumbashi clash, while a year earlier, Monomotapa lost 2-0 at home, before the 5-0 thrashing away from home in the group stages.
