We're still in it: DStv

HARARE - DStv Rangers coach Shame Nemasango is unfazed by the nine-point lead Northern Region Division one log leaders Black Rhinos currently enjoy and believes his side “is still in contention for the solitary promotion slot.”

“There are 18 points still available to decide on who wins the league,” Nemasango told the Daily News yesterday. Mathematically we are still in it,” he added.

The former Harare United coach however knows his team made life difficult for itself last Saturday after losing 1-0 to Skylink, a result that helped Rhinos extend their lead.

“That game (against) Skylink wanted it more than us and that’s something we have been working on. Our confidence has to rise,” Nemasango said.

DStv, who occupy second place behind Rhinos, take on Jumbo Giants at Old Hararians Sports Club tomorrow hoping to collect maximum points to stay within shouting distance of the pacesetters.

DStv will however not have it easy as Jumbo, who are perched precariously five points above of the drop zone, will be gunning for victory to finish the season on a high note.

Whichever way the result will go, the match will have a big bearing on the title credentials of Nemasango’s men, with just six games remaining before season ends.

Meanwhile, log leaders Black Rhinos face DC Academy at Hellenics Sports Club tomorrow aiming to make it 17 wins from 25 games.

Man-of-the-moment Lazurus Muhoni, who leads the Northern Region Division One League goal scoring chart, with 12 goals this season, is likely to have a big say again.
