Triangle . . . . . . . . . . . (0)2
Caps United . . . . . . . .(1)1
THERE were ugly scenes at Gibbo Stadium yesterday when Caps United fans attacked their own players before the Triangle match, accusing them of receiving bribes to throw away the tie.
The Green Machine went on to surrender a one-nil lead after Triangle goalkeeper Ronald Mudimu scored from the spot in the 60th minute and Courage Denias struck in the 69th minute.
Defender Jimmy Tigere scored an own goal that gave the Taurai Mangwiro-coached side an advantage going into the break.
Caps United fans, who were already in the stadium approached the side’s team bus soon after their arrival and pelted them with water bottles forcing police to intervene.
Mangwiro said the skirmishes affected his team’s performance yesterday and believes they could have defended their slender lead.
“The skirmishes affected our team’s morale and performance,” he said.
“How can someone come all the way from Harare to cause trouble? It’s really bad.”
His counterpart Biggie Zuze, however, said he was happy with his side’s fighting spirit.
