Speaking after their match against Ngezi in Chisumbanje, Ncube said it was quite a challenging encounter as Ngezi gave them a run for their money.

“It was a very tight contest between the two teams, but luckily, we came out victorious. We went into this match looking for maximum points, and the team delivered. We also know that the league is approaching its end, and losing a point isn’t that wise for every team,” he said.

“The players were in the game, and they fought for each other and showed us a signal that they are ready to fight.

“After the defeat in Zvishavane during the last bubble, we returned to the drawing board, worked on our m, stakes, and we came back a better and changed side this time around.
“We have set a target for ourselves. We are eyeing a top three finish. As you can see, the competition is very rife, everyone wants a podium finish, so it’s our chance to blow it away.
“The girls have a fighting spirit, and they are all determined,” he said.
ZDF is left with 12 matches before the league concludes.
“We need to win all remaining games to be home and dry.”
