Hwange moving out of drop zone?

Hwange assistant coach Brian Njobvu believes that his side’s recent -3-0 demolition of fallen former league champions Monomotapa is an indication that “Chipangano” are slowly but surely running away from the drop zone.

Currently ranked 13th on the on the 16-team log, Hwange are feeling the loss of eight of their key players in the off-season, but former skipper Njobvu said a corner had been turned.

“Things were not well with us in the beginning of the season due to the loss of players that made us play last season and that affected us a lot,” said Njobvu.

“I am happy that things have changed and our recent win over Monomotapa has given the boys confidence that it can still be done. We need to move out of the relegation zone and this was a perfect way to start doing that. We are using mostly junior players promoted from our Under-20 side that is competing in the first division. Initially, they lacked experience, but now they are getting there.”

Njobvu added that they were now building a team for next season. “Things are looking good and after surviving relegation, our goal would be to build a strong side for next season. We are working on keeping this team together and to give it experience so it becomes feared again.”
