Tsholotsho plot Chiefs upset

BULAWAYO - Sixth-placed Tsholotsho have vowed to halt Southern Region division one log leaders Bulawayo Chiefs’ title charge when the two sides meet in Tsholotsho at midday Saturday.

Tsholotsho head coach Lizwe Sweswe yesterday told the Daily News that he has laid all the groundwork for an upset.

“We have done our homework and we are ready to upset the log leaders,” Sweswe said.

“The boys are in high spirits and they are all psyched up for the game. They have promised me that they will not show any respect to Chiefs because they also harbor ambitions of achieving something at the end of the season.”

12 points separate the two teams with pacesetters Chiefs sitting on 31 points from 12 games while Tsholotsho are on 19 points from the same number of games as the log leaders.

Former Bantu Rovers and Buffaloes player Gilbert Majoni is the man to watch for Tsholotsho while the Majika brothers George and Moses, have been in sparkling form for Chiefs.

Second-placed Black Boots are in Hwange for a date with Hwange Juniors Saturday afternoon.

Hwange Juniors last week upset former top flight side Bantu Rovers and police outfit Black Boots will have to guard against suffering the same fate.

Bantu Rovers face newcomers Ajax Hotspurs who blotted their otherwise commendable performance in the first division when they lost heavily to lowly Bulawayo Jumbos earlier this week.

The two teams clash at Luveve Stadium in a midday encounter that will be followed by another Southern Region first division tie between Zimbabwe Saints and Mkhosana in the afternoon.

Fixtures: Bantu Rovers v Mkhosana (Luveve, 12pm), Zimbabwe Saints v Mkhosana (Luveve 3pm), Technosphere v Byo Jumbos (Hwange, 3pm), New West v Rufaro Rovers (Portuguese, 3pm), Tsholotsho v Byo Chiefs (Tsholotsho, 12pm), Mpumalanga v Ntabazinduna (Hwange, 3pm), Hwange Juniors v Black Boots (Hwange, 3pm), ZPC Hwange v Quelaton (Hwange 3pm). -  Sakheleni Nxumalo
