Caps United failed again to find the back of the net in a dull match played at the giant National sports stadium.

They were forced to lose their rhythm because the visitors were employing delaying tactics.

The visitors had come with a game plan of slowing the tempo of the game.

Otherwise, they had come up with Algerian delaying tactics.

A player would take ages to get up whenever he goes down.

But it worked because they managed to come out with a point away from home.

The referee of the day had to add six minutes of stoppage time to compensate the minutes lost as a result of the stoppages.

William Manondo, last season’s top goal scorer could not breach the Hwange goalkeeper with two headers from close range.

Although the visitors had their game plan of time wasting but the host had fair chances of killing the game but they wasted all the chances.

The ageless Chinyengetere and Ian Nyoni missed their chances from good scoring positions.

When Adrian Silla came in as a second half substitute, he had his chances but his efforts were hitting the posts on separate occasions.

They were searching for a late winner but everything was in vain.

Hwange coach Nation Dube blamed fatigue when he was asked about his delaying tactics.

He said it’s too far from Hwange such that his charges were tired but overall, he was happy because they did not want to go back with another defeat.

According to him their strategy paid very well because they managed to close the Caps strikers.

His opposite number, Lloyd Chitembwe said there is nothing much that you can expect from these small teams.
