BULAWAYO Christian league outfit Flying Stars are undaunted by the shock defeat they succumbed to at the hands of the 2017 champions Sangano legends last week as they maintained their second position on the log.
Sangano Legends who have been struggling to replicate the stellar performance they portrayed last season beat Flying Stars 3-1 only to suffer a defeat on the same day at the hands of Victory Fellowship.
They were massacred 6-2 in an eight-goal thriller.
The log leaders were also not spared from last week massacres as they were also defeated by House of Prayer 2-1.
Flying Stars gaffer Evans Madhuku said although they were defeated he was elated because the gap between them and the log leaders didna��t increase.
a�?When the team was not performing well, I was afraid that the log leaders would increase their lead in the log. I only heaved a sigh of relief when I discovered that they were also defeated,a�? he said.
a�?If the players did not underrate off-form Sangano Legends we could have been the ones to go on the mid-season break at the apex of the log. But there is still hope since we have a few games before the mid-season break,a�? said Madhuku.
He said he hoped his team would win this weeka��s battle.
a�?We will be hoping to return to winning ways and the boys are up for the challenge,a�? added Madhuku.
In other matches, third-placed Rising Stars beat Mpopoma Nazarene 2-1 while Word of Life baptised GCC 4-0.
St Patricka��s also registered a victory against ZCC.
