PSL round-up

The murky waters of relegation remain too much of a hurdle to escape for the PSL’s bottom four sides, which have completed six weeks rooted in the unfashionable zone.

Although newcomers Tripple B and army outfit Black Rhinos can be pardoned for their poor showing a few games into the second half, it is the presence of former title contenders Motor Action in the relegation zone that is sending panic chills into the Harare-based side’s faithful.

Even the return of the Mighty Bulls’ trusted midfielder and former Warriors’ kingpin, Clemence Matau, has failed to the turn tables. In 21 matches, the side has managed a paltry 15 points, which is equivalent to only five wins and they now anchor the 16 team log.

Alarm bells of the imminent demise of the club have already started ringing loud following the decision by the team owner Eric Rosen to cede a 20 percent shareholding of the once famous outfit to the Buy Zimbabwe franchise.

Buy Zimbabwe is a local organisation that advocates for the total consumption and use of Zimbabwean products within and beyond the country’s borders.

Though the move has been historic, considering that the deal entailed passing on some shares to loyal players and officials, it is now the future of the club that remains uncertain.

Meanwhile, return of former Morocca Swallows hitman Oscar Machapa to the domestic league after years down south seems to have boosted hopes for another glory season for champions Dynamos.

Machapa who scored the solitary goal that ensured Dembare completed a double victory over rivals Caps United on Sunday, has shown flashes of brilliance that can see the glamour boys bag the PSL trophy at the end of the season for a third consecutive season.

The glamour boys have now spent the second week on the log summit and will hit the road to Hwange for a date with Chipangano on the weekend.
