Cam and Motor (1)(4) Banket (0)(1)
Cam and Motor FC coach, Gipter Raiva’s prediction in a pre-match interview that his charges were going to restore some pride in the football Club by collecting maximum points against visiting Banket United at Rimuka Stadium came through when his charges thumped the visitors 4-1 in a re-arranged Ruyamuro Northern Region Division One League midweek match.
Raiva had earlier said that Banket was unlucky because they were facing a wounded elephant after being mauled by Simba Bhora at the same venue last week but despite their position on the log standings, Cam and Motor remained a big brand.
In a post-match interview, Raiva said that the win was not a fluke, further warning good going will extend to the next game against Chegutu Pirates at Rimuka Stadium.
“I’m very happy for the win.This win was not a fluke, we worked hard and corrected our mistakes,” Raiva said.
“The number of goals speaks volume of that, and we are left with more than five games to play for. We need to collect points if we are to avoid relegation.
“We now have 11 points and this win has buoyed the boys to die for the Cam and Motor brand,” said Raiva.
With Raiva in a jovial mood, Banket coach, Selestino Chikaka blamed his boys for the 4-1 drubbing on the road.
“My boys showed signs of fatigue from the first whistle and they did not come to the party. Most of the goals were blunders by the goalkeeper. I cannot say Cam and Motor was a better side as my boys gifted them the win.
“My keeper was the big let down,” said Chikaka.
Banket “BU” United bench showed flashes of brilliance but their attitude cost them the game making the team a strong candidate for relegation.
“The attitude and body language of my boys will cost us to be relegated. As a coach I wanted to continue dancing in the Northern Region Division One League but my boys are a big let down,”said the BU coach.
Former Caps United striker and BU coach,Stewart Murisa, is said to have walked out of Banket due to problems within the club.
