Caps United  1- 0 Ngezi Platinum Stars

CAPS United striker Simba Nhivi says Makepekepe have come a long way and want to avoid stumbling at the last hurdle after he scored the only goal of the match against Ngezi Platinum Stars at the National Sports Stadium yesterday.

It kept Harare giants strongly in the hunt for this year's title ahead of the crucial last round of matches.

Nhivi's 35th minute strike settled the matters yesterday as the Green Machine edged closer to ending an 11-year championship drought with a crucial win.

Caps United maintained pole position with a two-point advantage over second placed FC Platinum who kept the pressure when they thrashed Highlanders 3-0 at Mandava to set up an intriguing finish to this year's marathon.

Now with 60 points in the bag, Caps United travel to Chapungu next week for the decisive fixture while FC Platinum will also be away in Bulawayo to face Tsholotsho in their last match of the season.
