PSL Round-up

Nomadic coach Luke “Vahombe” Masomere’s attempt to ditch the Mutare-based army side, Buffaloes, could spell doom for the team ahead of their tricky encounter against wounded Triangle FC this weekend.

Buffaloes have had a fine run so far under Masomere, now joint log leaders with Hwange at 14 points. They are a point behind Highlanders and ZPC Kariba, who could not be separated on goals over the weekend, when their match ended in a one-all draw.

In the first seven rounds of matches played this season, Buffaloes have won four, drawn two and lost only one. Their fine run included a win over defending champions Dynamos and last week’s offset of title contenders, FC Platinum.

According to coach Masomere, his imminent departure from Buffaloes is largely due to failure by the army side to take care of his welfare. Reports indicate that Masomere is hardly getting paid and his players are struggling to make ends meet.

The coach said he had done all he could to convince the executive to attend to his welfare and that of the players, to no avail. Club authorities, who blamed their failure to meet Masomere’s demands on “economic problems,” expressed concern the coach wanted to leave them when he had assured them he would stay.

Elsewhere, Bosso will be hoping to pile more pressure on Harare City when they meet the club that has only won once this season. How Mine, on the other hand, host Caps United with the aim of collecting maximum points in order to maintain their rise to the apex.

Bantu Rovers date Chicken Inn in a Bulawayo derby, while Black Rhinos – whose form has not been impressive so far, play host to ZPC Kariba at Rimuka Stadium, in Kadoma.
