The drop in form has angered Green Machine fans, who questioned the team’s pedigree ahead of Sunday’s Harare derby.
The two-nil loss to Bulawayo Chiefs was CAPS United’s fifth loss on the trot and left them in the bottom half of the log.
The Green Machine, which started the season softly before bouncing back, capitulated and proved to be a true reflection of the crisis of the team, which was rocked by player revolts over unpaid fees.
Makepekepe last celebrated a victory over a month ago when they beat Yadah one-nil and it was the last of their four wins this season, over minnows Bulawayo City, Herentals and Tenax.
What is even more concerning is that the goals have dried up as William Manondo and Rodwell Chinyengetere endure a barren streak after a strong start to the year.
It has now been four games without a goal for the former cup champions, who are now a pale shadow of the team that featured in the country’s big three.
As the team wonders in the dark, the upcoming Harare derby against Dynamos, scheduled for the weekend, has left its fans worried.
