Chiefs maintain lead

BULAWAYO – Southern Region Division One promotion hopefuls Bulawayo Chiefs maintained their five point lead at the summit of the log after a 2-0 away victory over New West in a midweek encounter at Portuguese Sports Club on Wednesday.

The win took Chiefs’ points tally to 43 from 19 matches and the AmaKhosi seem to have recovered from a poor start to the second half of the season.

Second placed Black Boots kept the log leaders within touching distance after collecting maximum points away to Mkhosana in Victoria Falls.

The police side prevailed 2-0 over the resort town outfit to take their points tally to 38.

Third-placed Tsholotsho’s purple patch seems to have come to an end after they suffered their second consecutive defeat by going down 2-0 to Agent Sawu’s Ntabazinduna.

The Lizwe Sweswe-coached side is now in danger of being overtaken by former top flight sides Bantu Rovers and Zimbabwe Saints who have since moved into fourth and fifth position respectively.

Bantu overcame Hwange Juniors 1 – 0 in a midday encounter at Portuguese while Chikwata beat Technosphere by a similar scoreline at Fair Bridge.

Bantu has accumulated a total of 32 points while Saints are a point behind with 31 points to their credit.

Pre-season favourites ZPC Hwange continued their revival with a 4-1 thrashing of fellow Hwange side Rufaro Rovers and are now situated in sixth position on the log with 30 points.

New West 0 Bulawayo Chiefs 2, Ajax Hotspurs 1 Bulawayo Jumbos 2, Mkhosana 0 2 Black Boots 2, ZPC Hwange 4 Rufaro Rovers 1, Zimbabwe Saints 1 Technosphere 1, Ntabazinduna 2 Tsholotsho 0, Bantu Rovers 1 Hwange Juniors 0.
