ZVISHAVANE - Reigning Castle Lager soccer champions, Caps United gafa Lloyd Chitembwe has warned Shabani Mine FC not to be overexcited by their glamorous start this season as the tide can still easily turn against them.
Bvaru Bvaru are over the moon after defeating Dynamos at National Sports Stadium three weeks ago before settling for a draw against Caps at Maglass stadium.
Chitembwe, however, feels the high flying asbestos miners could be in for a rude awakening if they they decide to prematurely begin to count their catch
"We cannot rely on the results of the opening matches to determine the future. It's too early to predict. It doesn't mean that those who won the opening matches can win the championship or those who lost will be relegated," said Chitembwe.
Chitembwe defended his charges who were recently belittled in front of the fully-packed Maglass stadium saying despite their failure to clinch an outright win, Caps had still managed to grab a point away from home.
"The boys played very well against a well-furnished side. I am happy that we managed a draw away from home and this is good for a start," he added.
Shabani Mine FC head coach Wilson Mutekede is however happy with his side's current performance which he hopes will be maintained against other big guns in the premiership.
"Bvaru is here to stay, I am glad you witnessed how the champions were turned into a division one outfit," said Francis Makore.sport
