Bantu Rovers maintained their unbeaten streak with a nil all draw to Ntabazinduna at Prison TD grounds on Friday before hammering Makokoba City Warriors four nil at Hartsfield on Sunday.

The match at Ntabazinduna proved a tough assignment as the young Bantu side struggled to cope with the uneven field surface.  Ntabazinduna came at Bantu from all angles in the first half and had several clear chances that they failed to convert.   Bantu tried to play their usual passing game but the surface made it difficult for them to keep possession and Ntabazinduna pressed them really high up the field. Bantu had to thank skipper Edwin Nkomo and goalkeeper  Takunda “TK” Mutanga for managing to help the team keep a clean sheet in the first half.

The second half proved a different affair as Bantu pressed Ntabazinduna in their half but chances remained few and far between for the visitors.  Ntabazinduna remained dangerous albeit on counter attacks.  Bantu goal minder TK Mutanga had to dive acrobatically to his right to save a header from a Ntabazinduna forward in the dying minutes to salvage a point for Bantu. The visitors nearly grabbed all three points in injury time when substitute forward Zanempilo Khuphe found himself face to face with the goalkeeper but his weak shot was easily collected by the Ntabazinduna shot stopper.
