THOMAS Magorimbo says the Harare giants were devastated by the failure to win the NetOne OneWallet Cup, but has urged his teammates to bounce back and not let the defeat wreck their league title campaign.
DeMbare resume their league campaign when they travel to Sakubva this Sunday for a date against Moses Chunga’s Buffaloes.
Despite playing with one man less following the expulsion of Jimmy Dzingai in the 71st minute, DeMbare still failed to find the winner at the end of 120 minutes.

Magorimbo and Tafadzwa Rusike missed from the spot during the tie-breaker to hand Triangle and their coach Biggie Zuze their first silverware.
“We are feeling bad now but we need to raise our heads. It’s not the end of the season for us. We have the title to chase in the league competition. We are left with about six games, so we need to remain focused and forget about this (Cup final) game.

“Obviously, we needed this Cup, unfortunately we couldn’t land it.
“I am sorry for what happened in the game, but we need to focus. We need to get our heads up so that we put maximum effort in our next league game,” said Magorimbo.
Dynamos had many scoring opportunities but their chief striker Roderick Mutuma blew away those chances.

DeMbare were also matched in the midfield department as Triangle played with determination despite being reduced to 10-man midway through the second half.
“We tried to pass the ball around but we couldn’t put the ball behind their defence. I think they were much organised,” said Magorimbo.

“Even though they were one man short you could see that they were fighting hard, everyone putting in 120 percent to cover up for the guy who was red carded.
“They played very well.”

Close rivals in the championship race CAPS United and Highlanders will be cancelling out each other in top-of-the-table clash at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.
Makepekepe enhanced their championship credentials by rising to third position after winning their last assignment away to Black Rhinos.

They are now third in the marathon, four points off the pace while Highlanders, who have been facing a host of in-house problems slipped into fourth place with 39 points with a 3-1 home defeat to ZPC Kariba in their last outing.

However, the Green Machine have had their fair share of troubles but this time they will be eager to revenge the 4-0 thrashing they suffered in the reverse leg at Barbourfields.
Another interesting tie will pit resurgent Harare City against Norman Mapeza’s FC Platinum at Rufaro on Saturday.

The Sunshine Boys have had a remarkable recovery under Masimba Dinyero.
Harare City are currently on 34 points while FC Platinum are on 35.
