Tight race down south
Chioniso Mashakada in Bulawayo
Southern Region Division One side Bulawayo City beat championship rivals and log leaders Talen Vision 1-0 to reduce the gap at the top to three points.
With four games left before the league end, Talen are still on the summit of the standings with 52 points.
City, who are three points behind in this interesting title race, carry a game in hand advantage which they will play against Moto Moto, this coming weekend.
Moto Moto recently lost 13-0 to Talen Vision.
Victory for City will see them tallying points with Vision only to go second on inferior goal difference.
Melikhaya Ncube’s goal was enough for City to collect maximum points leaving coach Try Ncube hopefull,
“The race is still open and we are still the favorites. We haven’t played our game in hand and Vision are leading with a bigger margin of goal difference so we are going to fight and work very hard,” he said.
Vison played with one man down after Douglas Sibanda was sent off and coach Mkhuphali Masuku believes that affected the flow of the game.
“I think the turning point was the red card we got during the first half but we are not dwelling much on that.”
He, however, accepted defeat saying that it was not their day.
“If you look how we played we were not bad, we created chances but it was not our day to burry those chances,” he said.
