No team is safe: Ndabambi

HARARE - Blue Rangers coach Partson Ndabambi believes no team is safe from relegation yet, adding that the last five Castle Premiership games will be an intense affair for all bottom eight teams.

Ndabambi says in their survival quest, his club has targeted Hwange, who occupy the last safe slot with 25 points but is stretching his scope to former champions Motor Action and Caps United, who are both eight points above the drop zone with 30 points from 24 games.

Rangers, who have 21 points, take on an inform Harare City at Rufaro Stadium in a match that will be broadcasted in over 42 countries courtesy of Supersport 9 today.

“It’s a crucial game for us,” Ndabambi said.

“Very crucial in our fight against relegation and considering that teams above us keep picking up points here and there, it’s going to be tough.

“The good thing about football is about who is in form that day. From Motor Action, Caps United, Black Mambas to Hwange no one is safe. And that makes our survival chances even more realistic,” he added.

Ndabambi said playing in front of millions of spectators across sub-Saharan Africa courtesy of Supersport will put a spring in his players’ step.

However, City coach Bigboy Mawiwi , whose side has drawn 11 times from 24 games, says beating Rangers will go a long way to meet their objective of finishing their maiden PSL season in the top eight.

“Obviously we are going for three points but we are very much aware that Rangers have been playing well,” Mawiwi said.

“Our target is still collecting maximum points so that we at least finish in the top eight.”
