Mangwiro’s Perfect Birthday Present

Triangle coach Taurai Mangwiro who turned 48 on Sunday received a perfect birthday present from his charges who beat CAPS United 2-1 at Gibbo Stadium.

Mangwiro whose side have had a slow start to the season, turned on the power over the 2016 champions with Nhamo Lameck grabbing a late goal to break hearts of Makepekepe faithful.

“The players worked very well against a well-organised CAPS United. It’s a sweet win for us as it was not an easy match.

“It’s a perfect birthday present for me from my boys and I can’t ask for more. They worked very hard against a well-organised team, we need to be dominant at home and work very hard when playing away,” Mangwiro said.

It is the third time that Lameck has struck late in a match for Triangle with the diminutive striker having previously found crucial goals against ZPC Kariba and Yadah Stars as the Sugar Sugar Boys registered their third straight win.

Triangle’s third successive win is in stark contrast to the manner in which they started the season which had seen pressure building up on Mangwiro after indifferent performances in their opening three games.

Trevor Mavhunga had thrust Triangle into the lead in the 52nd minute before Joel Ngodzo restored parity for CAPS United seven minutes from time scoring from the penalty spot.
