The Zimbabwe 2014 Orange Caf Confederation Cup representatives lost their opening game of the season 1-0 to Dynamos at home, before they were thrashed 3-1 by PSL returnees Bantu Rovers in the Bulawayo derby on Saturday.
The gold miners have found the going tough since they bowed out of the CAF Confederation Cup, which should have prepared them for the new season. “We are working hard as a team to get on top of our game in the first PSL matches,” said coach Ncube.
“We have capacity to compete for top honours again and it’s just that we are trying to find the right baton. We played very well in the Caf Confederation cup and lost confidence soon after, but we are working hard to regain our form and status. We only have to remain committed and united and we will get the results.”
How Mine Chairman, Mlondolozi Nkomo, was also optimistic the Bulawayo-based side would bounce back. “The team is playing well and we lost to better sides in our opening two matches, but it’s not that we are happy with the results. We are doing all that we can as management to cheer up the boys as we are confident that they can deliver,” he said.
“We are just in the first days of the season and will still deliver for our fans, who should continue supporting us in their large numbers.”Post published in: Football
