The Marondera-based outfit, Surrey FC has finally found its rhythm and registered a win last weekend at Motor Action Sports Club after edging Manica Diamonds Juniors 1-0. Surrey FC currently sits at position 12 on the log of the ZIFA Eastern Region Soccer League (ERSL) after playing seven games, winning three, drew one and losing three. 

Manica Diamond Juniors FC on the other hand is on the bottom of the log at position 16, after a winless streak so far this season, with three draws and eight defeats.

Surrey FC desperately needed a win as they fight to be in the last top four. The win was a major boost to Surrey FC after they lost their previous match 1-0 to the Masvingo-based new kid on the block, FC Wangu Mazodze. 

Robert Muza’s goal at the half hour mark decided the fate of the bottom-placed Manica Diamonds. The delightful Muza who wears the captain arm band for Surrey FC lobbed the ball past a hapless Manica goalie to give his team a third win of the season. 

After the breather the marauding Surrey FC stickers could have doubled in their lead 15 minutes into second half, but took turns to miss glorious chances. Surrey FC was presented with a glorious chance in on 62 minutes, but the striker tipped his effort over the bar. The gangling Benias Machaure was also denied the chance to put his name of the score sheet after his powerful strike ricocheted on the woodwork with 10 minutes to the stoppage time.

On the other hand, Manica Diamonds FC came back a rejuvenated side after the break and tried to change the tempo of the game, but its toothless striking force continued to fire blanks. Although Manica Diamonds Juniors FC kept bombarding the host team’s goal area they were kept at bay by a water tight Surrey FC defence. The score line remained unchanged and Surrey FC walked away the victors. 

In an interview with The Mirror, Surrey FC captain Robert Muza, said he believes that the team is back to its winning ways after a loss of form due to a soccer lay off in the country that was caused by the ravaging global Covid 19 pandemic.

“The team is now playing well, which clearly shows that we are back to our winning ways. No one is to blame for the this season’s defeats,” said Muza.https://masvingomirror.com/
