GREENFUEL FC’s 1-1 draw against Sheasham of Gweru last Saturday cannot go unmentioned. Despite supporters yearning for the team’s first win, the draw with Sheasham managed to prevent people from getting an elevated blood pressure if the Ethanol Boys had lost.
Frankly, a point away from home is better than a loss at home.
This brings tomorrow’s business. Greenfuel FC is playing home against Ngezi Platinum tomorrow (22 April 2023) at Gibbo Stadium in Triangle. The boys are having the advantage of home supporters.
Ngezi is on position number 7 on the log. For the 5 matches it has played so far, the platinum side has won 1, drawn 4 and lost none. If it maintains this record, it might mean that Ngezi is going to set for a draw or a win.
For its away matches, Ngezi managed to draw 1-1 against Bulawayo Chiefs on 18 March, 0-0 against Triangle United on 02 April and won 1-0 against Manica Diamonds. If Ngezi 1could upset Manica Diamonds in its own backyard, the Ethanol Boys should also be cautiouús of its play tomorrow.
In soccer, people say that teams should treat each game as it comes. Ngezi is also treating the Greenfuel match as it comes. It knows that its performances in the previous games is now history and cannot dictate how it shall play tomorrow. With that in mind, Greenfuel should not put itself in the inferiority complex but take the bull by its horns.
Greenfuel is the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League icon for Chipinge-Chimanimani region, so the team should make the area proud of it forever. Gibbo Stadium should be full of cheers by end of day tomorrow.
Go Ethanol Boys, Go!
