Sitting on 59 points from 26 matches, the local authority side only need six points to clinch the sole ticket to play in the top-flight league next season. Two wins in the last four matches will see them through as they will reach an unassailable 65 points.

City  lead the Thulani Sibanda-coached Bulawayo Chiefs by seven points and if the former Southern Region Division One champions win all their remaining games, they finish the season at 64 points. ZPC Hwange, Techonesphere and Hwange complete the top five as it stands.

City is pinning its hopes in players like former Highlanders skipper Innocent Mapuranga, Xolisani Moyo, Simba Sithole, Bruce Tshuma, Mkhululi Moyo, Zibusiso Sibanda, Takunda Muzuva and Welcome Ndiweni to rap it up.

“There is no easy game for us as every team playing us perfoms beyong expectations,” Mujokoro told The Zimbabwean in an interview recently.

“We are in the most crucial stage where we do not need any points. We just need only two wins from four matches to finish-off this race. It’s not an easy task but I have confidence in the boys and our entire technical team. We will do all our best to win as olur team is very solid with experienced players who are very much aware of what is expected out of them. We need to seriously take each game as it comes along.”

Mujokoro also appealed for support as they try to increase the number of teams in the PSL from the province.
“In the past years Bulawayo has seen teams like Railstars, Amazulu, Zimbabwe Saints and Njube Sundowns going down the drain. I urge football fanatics from across Bulawayo to rally behind us as we seek bring another team from their province into the PSL. It’s never easy for other fans to support us but football is about unity. United we will achieve our goal come in numbers as we urge closer into promotion,” he added.
