The Mandla Mpofu coached side went into the match against the backdrop of having fallen to their opponents in both encounters last term and were looking to secure a positive result this time around.
They got their wish after picking up a crucial point to ensure they have lost just once in the five matches they have played winning twice with two ending in draws. In contrast their opponents are still to register a single victory in the campaign thus far, drawing three and losing one to defending champions Caps United.
The visitors who had an upper hand threatening with some fine raids could have opened an account on 21 minutes only for Bekhimpilo Ncube‘s low shot to be saved by the goalkeeper. Mkhululi Moyo also missed a good opportunity after 38 minutes from five yards out with the keeper at his mercy.
In the second half, Harare City were a rejuvenated side and Honey Chimutimunzeve could have thrust his side ahead but shot straight into the hands of the goalkeeper after some good work by Tatenda Tumba.
Mpofu was happy to collect a point against their opponents for the first time while his opposite number Mike Madzivanyika expressed disappointment for his failure to score and secure maximum points.
