MASVINGO – Masvingo United is the first team to defeat army side Buffaloes FC in the 2024/ 2025 ZIFA Eastern Region Division 1 league ahead of Sunday’s derby against undefeated log leaders FC Wangu Mazodze.
Una Una secured a 1- 0 win over the Mutare based side through a second half McDonald Zohwa strike at Mucheke Stadium yesterday.
Buffaloes had enjoyed a smooth start to the season winning six and drawing two fixtures.
FC Wangu Mazodze remains the only unbeaten team in the league with 25 points from nine games (eight wins and a draw).
Masvingo United chairperson Collen Maboke said they are going to end FC Wangu Mazodze’s winning streak in Sunday’s derby.
“Our target is to get into the Premier Soccer League (PSL) and our chances are good because the league is still young. Buffaloes is a big team and the win is our statement of intent. We are going to end Mazodze’s winning streak on Sunday,” he said.
The club is fourth on the log with 18 points from 10 games (five wins, three draws and two defeats).
FC Wangu Mazodze coach John Nyikadzino said his charges are ready for the derby. He said they will prove their worth in the ground.
“We are ready. Football is not resolved in the Press or streets and we will prove it on Sunday. It’s okay if Una Una wants to stop us because I also want to win against Barcelona,” he said.
FC hunters is second with 21 points (six wins, three draws and a defeat). Buffaloes is third with 20 points from nine fixtures (six wins, two draws and a defeat).
Meanwhile PSL relegated side Triangle FC is finding the going tough with 14 points from nine fixtures. The sugar boys have won four, drawn two and lost three fixtures.
Chiredzi Stars FC, Manica Diamonds U19 FC and Great Zimbabwe University FC make the bottom three with three points each. Chiredzi Stars has lost five of its six fixtures and GZU has lost seven of its eight games.
