Chiefs extend lead

BULAWAYO – Southern Region Division One pacesetters Bulawayo Chiefs have opened up an eight-point lead at the summit of the log after their 1-0 victory over Ntabazinduna in Plumtree at the weekend.

Chiefs now have 46 points from 20 matches and have re-established themselves as outright favourites for the sole promotion slot.

The log leaders benefitted from second placed Black Boots’ 1-0 loss at home to former top-flight campaigners Bantu Rovers at Fairbridge.

An early strike by Nqobizitha Masuku was enough to earn Tshintsha Guluva the maximum points and propel them to third position on the log with 35 points to their credit.

Lizwe Sweswe’s Tsholotsho slipped to fourth place after losing 2-1 at home to Mpumalanga.

This was Tsholotsho’s third loss on the trot but Sweswe is optimistic that his target of a top four finish is still possible.

“At the beginning of the season we set ourselves a target to finish in the top four and that is still within our reach,” Sweswe said.

“We were missing some of our key players at the weekend but I am sure we will return to winning ways in the coming fixture,” Sweswe said.
