'Long walk to title'

HARARE - ZPC Kariba coach Saul Chaminuka says the blockbuster Castle Premiership tie between his team and Dynamos on Saturday cannot be labelled the title decider – at least as far as his team is concerned.

Chaminuka, whose team could make history by becoming the first team from outside Harare and Bulawayo to win the Zimbabwean league title, is taking it easy ahead of the clash against serial winners DeMbare.

A win for Dynamos will guarantee the Glamour Boys a fourth straight title, but Chaminuka admits a win for his team will not have the same effect as they will still have to face, in their final game, a CAPS United side searching for a respectable finish to the season.

ZPC trail record champions and title holders Dynamos by a mere point going into the last two games of the season.

The Glamour Boys currently enjoy a one point lead at the top of the table with 54 points ahead of ZPC, who have 53 points with only two matches left before the season comes to an end.

A victory for Chaminuka’s men will see the Zimbabwe Power Company-owned side move to the summit of the log with a two point advantage while a win for Dynamos will guarantee them the title they have won for the past three years.

A draw will see the title being decided right on the last day of the season, just like last season.

“We are going to treat the game the same way that we have been playing. I don’t think there is anything special about this match,” Chaminuka told the Daily News yesterday. 

“We don’t want to put ourselves under unnecessary pressure. Of course it is good talking about the championship but we have to take each game at a time. Our focus is more on the match against Dynamos than winning the title. 

“For Dynamos, maybe it’s a title decider but for us it’s not because if we win we still need to play CAPS United and win if we are to win the title.”
