Rovers put up a brave display as they frustrated the title favourites, who were desperate for maximum points at Luveve Stadium following Chicken Inn and FC Platinum’s respective wins on Friday and Saturday.
It was a painful goal to concede for Rovers who had done everything to match the visitors.
Muuya had made a brilliant 14th minute save to deny Teguru a goal in a one-on-one situation. The visitors looked threatening on the overlap, with left-back Qadr Amini combining well with Teguru and Tichaona Mabvura.
When they got their goal, Ngezi kept probing Rovers who maintained their shape and made it difficult for the visitors to play the ball.
The hard-fought victory fascinated Ngezi coach Tonderai Ndiraya, who had predicted a difficult encounter in his pre-match interview.
