The battle for the coveted league title has been narrowed to a two horse race between Motor Action and Dynamos who remained level on 63 points after both posted emphatic victories in their penultimate league fixtures on Wednesday. Dynamos were on a four-goal rampage over Douglas Warriors while across town the Mighty Bulls closely monitored the situation blasting CAPS United 4-2 to cling onto their three-goal advantage at the summit with two matches to play.
The wins lifted both teams to 63 points from 29 matches, but the Mighty Bulls advantage which began as five goals has been whittled down to three goals. Dynamos play Black Mambas on December 19 and, crucially they must better Motor Actions winning margin by at least four goals to win the crown. A three-goal winning margin, if less than eight goals, would not win Dynamos the title as Motor Action have scored more goals than them.
On the same day Motor Action lock horns with Lengthens whose camp has been dogged by serious financial problems and look set to be an easy prey for the Mighty Bulls. Dynamos coach Elvish Chiweshe drew fresh hope from his teams scoring form following the comprehensive defeat of Douglas Warriors. Its still game on. We have a game to play, they (Motor Action) have a game to play, so we will see what happens next on December 19, Chiweshe said.
Motor Action coach Joey Antipas said the destiny of the league title was now firmly on their hands. “It was a good victory which has put us in the driving seat. It is only for us to blow away this chance but in the second half we lost concentration and conceded those two goals against CAPS United. We need to score as many goals as we can against Lengthens because this is likely to be decided on goal difference,” said Antipas.Post published in: Zimbabwe Sports News
