Northern Region action resumes

HARARE - Zifa Northern Region Soccer League (NRSL) matches resume this weekend with log leaders Flame Lily clashing with DStv Rangers in a potentially explosive tie at Chikurubi on Saturday.

Flame Lily top the log standing with 35 points, two ahead of ZPC Kariba and Mushowani, who are second tied on 32 points.

The Zimbabwe Prison Services outfit, who now boast of some former Premiership players in their ranks, have bright chances of promotion into the top-flight next season.

Veteran goalkeeper Edmore Hamandishe and former Dynamos defender Dominic Benati are some of the players who now turn-out for the prison side.

Rangers were one of the favourites for promotion but their campaign has since gone off the rails.

However, competition remains stiff in the league and it is promising to be a closely contested affair as all the top eight teams are in the reckoning for promotion into the top fight.

NRSL secretary general Sweeny Mushonga said the championship is promising to be a closely contested marathon.

  “It’s back to business this weekend and all our teams are in action and the competition is very stiff,” Mushonga told the Daily News yesterday.

“The games will be played tomorrow and Saturday due to the national team’s Chan final qualifier against Zambia at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday,” he said.
