Everything seems to be working for Bulawayo Chiefs as they keep heading towards relegation safety.
They won back-to-back fixtures including their crucial 1-0 victory last Saturday over FC Platinum and a 3-1 win over Mushowani a fortnight ago.
With five games to go, Bulawayo Chiefs have registered nine wins, seven draws and 12 defeats this season.
They are currently on 34 points, three points safe from the danger zone.
However, Chiefs boss Thulani Sibanda pointed out there is still room for improvement as he cannot guarantee safety yet.
Sibanda says in order to survive relegation this season they just have to take one game at a time.
“I’m happy that we are now picking points and it shows how deeply we want to escape relegation.
“To do that we need to take one game at a time because we have tough fixtures ahead of us including two crucial derbies against Chicken Inn and Highlanders.
“And I cannot say other fixtures are easy, they are all difficult matches but we are getting somewhere and there is still room for improvement need to be done.
“So at this stage I cannot guarantee safety yet but I’m just hoping that we continue with our form and see how we will handle those matches,” he said.
“But I cannot complain though I’m happy and satisfied by how we are playing and we just need to try and continue what we have been doing.
“I’m also proud of the boys because they are showing character that they do not want to be relegated and I hope that they can keep that momentum in all our remaining games.
“As a coach obvious I want us to be safe this season but anything can happen in football and we just have to wait and see come end of season.”
