ZPC Kariba coach Sunday Chidzambwa has rued their 1-0 defeat at the hands of Caps United in the Zimbabwean Premier Soccer League on Sunday.
Chidzambwa says they have themselves to blame for the defeat as they did not fight, thus allowing the Green machine to claim the three points.
Although United were struggling to collect the full three points in their previous matches, they will now hope to maintain the winning run if they are to defend the league title, let alone avoid a relegation dogfight.

A single goal through Dominic Chungwa in the 61st minute ensured United ease their win-less run as well as allowing coach Lloyd Chitembwe a sigh of relief.
“In today’s defeat, we have ourselves to blame. We did not fight at all, especially in the first half and thus we never created any chances,” Chidzambwa said to the News Day.
“We only started playing football when Caps United has scored. We have to look at ourselves in the mirror and ask ourselves whether we want to play football.
“The players were not prepared for a fight at all. I will go to the dressing room and ask them if they want to fight for me or not.
“If they do not want, then I will be prepared to resign. When players do not fight they put pressure on the coach.
On the other hand, United's assistant coach Fungai Kwashi said he was pleased with the win, but hey will not get carried away.
“We are pleased with the win. We had the confidence that we would get the three points, but we will not get carried away because we still have a lot of work to do in the next match against Tsholotsho,” Kwashi adds.
