Gaths Mine gun for top four finish

HARARE - Gaths Mine are hoping for a top four finish in the Central Region Division One league.

The Mashava-based club beat Hardbody 2-1 at Mkoba Stadium on Saturday to consolidate their fourth position on top of the log standings.

Gaths Mine coach Andrew Chisunga said he wants to keep the momentum so that they end in the top four considering that Chapungu are running away with the title.

Most teams have given up on catching the Air Force side, who are destined for a return to the Premiership.

"I am pleased with the way we are playing and I would like us to continue pushing for a respectable finish which is within the top four,” said Chisunga.

“I don't want to put myself or the players under pressure but a top four finish is very much a realistic opportunity for us."

Chapungu remained on course towards a return to the top flight after they were awarded the game against Kwekwe Pirates on a 3-0 scoreline.

Pirates were booted out of the league over non payment of affiliation.

Chrome Stars and Midlands State University were also beneficiaries of the expulsion of clubs over non-payment of affiliation fees as they were also awarded three points on a 3-0 scoreline.

Stars were scheduled to play against Gwanda Ramblers while MSU were billed to meet Tripple B Academy.

Hwahwa drew 0-0 against Silo United while Vumbachikwe overcame Jessie Mine 1-0 in the battle of Gwanda at Collen Brawn Stadium.

NB: Kwekwe Pirates, Tripple B Academy and Gwanda Ramblers were booted out of the league for non-payment of affiliation fees. Any team that is fixtured against them gets three points on a 3-0 scoreline
