PSL Round-up with Brenna Matendere

PSL outfits occupying the relegation zone but hoping for another dance in the top flight football scene have an opportunity to re-charge their batteries when the action takes a break this weekend to pave way for the Net-One Wallet Cup quarter finals. Chiredzi, Bantu Rovers, Shabanie Mine and Black Rhinos form the quartet that have the remaining nine games to turn the tables and re-discover winning matrixes, if they are to survive the chop.


Chiredzi, who started off under outspoken former Warriors dribbling wizard, Moses “Bambo” Chunga, are at the tail-end of the log with 12 points – 27 behind leaders Dynamos, while Rovers have 16 points. The Chinda Boys have 23 points and Rhinos have 24.

Over the weekend Rovers coach, Methembe Ndlovu, seemed to have thrown in the towel after seeing his charges crumble to a 0-2 defeat at the hands of a determined ZPC Kariba, but he would have to take solace from the reality that there are still 27 points to play for.

Should the Bulawayo side grab at least 20 of those points, the City of Kings would still not have a reduced pack of PSL outfits next season. John Phiri, coach for the Chinda Boys, is however unperturbed by the status of his asbestos-mining side.

Indications are that the championship race will once again go to the wire.
