Briefing journalists at a press conference, Public Relations Officer Squadron Leader Tawanda Zowa said they are trying their best to create a strong club.
“The two midfield signings prove to what will happen in the future. We decided to change our playing style as well as rotate our team in busy schedules,” he said.
Mr Zowa stated that, players loaned out will return to ease their relegation woes.
“I am very happy that some of our players who had been loaned to our sister teams are coming back to join us and relegation is not in question and I am very sure about that,” said Zowa
Rodwell Dlakama who is currently the head coach got his first home win since his appointment, said he is confident that the new players are coming in with new needed skill.
“We have a quite number of players with experience so these players have brought skill which we want this season, we have started very well in the second season, from technical perspective there is no relegation,” said Dlakama.
However, relegation threatened side Nichrut FC eased their worries when new boy Rodrick Mutuma scored a double against Mutare city.
