PSL Round-up with Brenna Matendere

Former Dynamos and Central Soccer League Division one side Chapungu hit-man Philip Marufu, believes he has the stamina to inspire success at his new club- Black Rhinos, currently seized with the battle to escape the murky waters of relegation.

The pint-sized striker, who joined Rhinos during the just-ended mid-season transfer window period, believed he would turn the tables at his new club.

“Chauya Chipembere” who relocated from Harare to Kadoma’s Rimuka stadium, form part of the relegation-zone quartet that also includes Hwange, Motor action and Beitbridge based PSL debutants, Tripple B.

Despite holding Dynamos to a goalless draw in their last fixture, Rhinos’ larger mission at the moment is to rise to a safer position on the 16-team log.

It is that mission which Marufu, whose fame has been centred on snatching decisive goals in difficult moments for Chapungu, will be hoping to achieve during the period running into the season end.

“I do not foresee relegation for Black Rhinos at the end of this season. I say so because my task will be to make sure that I score goals. Those goals will make us win and rise from the position we are in now. I know I will be able to accomplish that mission,” said the former Dynamos hitman.

“At the same time, I am aware that PSL has teams with good defenders but as a striker, I will do my best to save my club as well. Fans for Chauya Chipembere are cheerful and that will be my advantage.”

At Rhinos, Marufu will be joining other three new acquisition who have been invited by the army side to boost its campaign. The others are Gilbert Mushangazhike, Clarence Zimbawu and Blessing Sande from Motor Action.

Meanwhile, former Motor Action skipper, Clemence Matau, recently joined Bulawayo-based Chicken Inn, while former Dynamos and Caps United striker, Evans Gwekerere will be hoping to revive his career at Black Mambas.

The former South African-based duo of Victor Kamhuka and Oscar Machapa has crossed to Dembare while Highlanders snatched Tinashe Chipunza and Master Masitara from the Botswana league.

How Mine were not to be outdone, as they also brought in Ephraim Mazarura from Mbabane Swallows and Caps United have re-united with Leonard Tsipa and also signed Brian Mapfumo from the Botswana league where the latter played for Township Rollers.
