Chicken Inn coach Antipas happy with maintaining lead

CHICKEN Inn coach Joey Antipas said his side was not impressive in the 2-0 league win over Chapungu on Saturday but is happy about collecting maximum points.
Mitchell Katsvairo and Bhekimpilo Ncube scored in either half to hand Chicken Inn the victory and retain their two-point lead over second-placed Triangle.
It was a double completed by Chicken Inn over Chapungu whom they beat 2-1 in the reverse league fixture away in Gweru.
“It is three points in the bag and I am happy we did collect them.
“It was not a good game from my boys as they failed to play the passing brand of football that they been accustomed to but that happens in some games,” Antipas said.
Chicken Inn were without veteran midfielder Clemence Matawu, Passmore Bernard and Warriors linkman Tafadzwa Kutinyu who were all injured.
Antipas commended their replacements Canaan Nkomo, Guide Goddard and Thabani Goredema for holding fort with distinction.
“The trio played very well and I am happy they took the chance to play with both hands fully knowing that there is stiff competition,” Antipas said.
Antipas is a championship winner with Motor Action in 2010 and has been widely tipped as a serious league title contender.
For scorer Katsvairo, it was his third goal inside two games after grabbing a brace seven days earlier in the Chibuku Super Cup first round win over Hwange.
