Bantus relegation fears

BULAWAYO - Premier soccer league side, Bantu Rovers, believe it is too early to be talking about relegation following yet another dismal performance against new comers, FC Victoria.

Though Rovers, popularly known as Tshintsha Guluva, managed to pick up its first point through a goalless draw in their fifth match of the 2010 soccer season, soccer pundits have already projected their relegation.

The match during the weekend was played at White City stadium after Rovers failed to pay US$2 211 demanded by the Bulawayo City council for the use of Barbourfields.

In a post match interview, Rovers president dismissed talk of relegation adding that his team had the capacity to turn things around.

I have no doubt that we have a good team and the players have displayed a strong spirit to fight on. We will take each game as it comes, he said.

Ndlovu said there were a number of players who had shown promise and should be able to turn the corner in the near future.

The unfortunate thing is that most of our players are inexperienced at this level of the game but with time they should be able to hold their own, said Ndlovu.

Meanwhile fellow premiership sides from the southern region struggled with Shabanie Mine having been walloped three-nil by Motor Action, while Hwange lost to the countrys CAF champions league representative Dynamos 2-0 at the Colliery.
