CAPS United striker Lot Chiwunga was the hero on Sunday afternoon as he scored a brace to help his side win 3-1 against league newcomers Arenel at Rufaro stadium.

The 38-year-old striker scored 17 minutes into the game to give Makepeke a 1-0 halftime lead.

The former Black Rhinos striker completed his brace in 71 minutes before Arenel’s Jaravaza pulled one back from the spot in 76 minutes.

CAPS United’s victory was cushioned by Ralph Kawondera who scored in 82 minutes to seal the scoreline.

Sunday’s brace marked Chiwunga’s first league goal in CAPS United’s colours, and it eased pressure as a striker for him.

“Scoring a brace means a lot and I thank God for those goals.

“Credit also goes to the team because they also contributed.

“These past three games I had not scored and it mounting pressure, know we have a tag name ‘chembere dzaLodza’ and not scoring means supporters were not happy and would question my play,” he said.

Chiwunga joined CAPS United from relegated side Black Rhinos and he is one of the senior players currently plying trade in the topflight league.

Playing for a big club like CAPS United comes with a lot of demands and the 38-year-old striker says he aims to work with his team for better results.

“My target for this season is to score more goals.

“We are going to score goals all of us as strikers and I believe God will see us through.

“To say I have an individual target no I don’t have, but all we want is to score more goals and win trophies,” he added.

Sunday’s win was the second victory for CAPS United this season following a slow start. It saw them losing to Chicken Inn in the opening game before beating Herentals in the second game and then later being chopped down by Bikita Minerals on matchday 3.
