 Meanwhile Coach of Mighty Mukuru Wanderers, Mark Harrison acknowledged that his team lacked the cutting edge in the game and appreciated the test they got ahead of the season opener. 

“The first half was shocking we never put a pass together we never won a ball nor second balls, it’s probably the worst I have seen us play. In the second half we were better but I don’t think I can pick anybody and say they had a good game.
