Mutare City on the brink

MUTARE - After missing out on promotion with just two points last season, Mutare City Rovers hold all the aces this time around in a cliff-hanger Zifa Eastern Region Division One title race.

Magusha, as the Mutare municipal police side is affectionately referred to, for the first time this season climbed to the summit this week with just three games to go.

Mutare City Rovers dislodged Hartley Academy from the top of the log standings with a hard-fought 2-1 win at home to Melfort at the weekend.

Hartley Academy, who are faltering as the race goes to the wire, were held to a goalless draw by whipping boys Gaza Gunners in Chipinge.

Masvingo United are still in with a chance after beating visiting prison wardens - Tenax 3-1.

Mutare City lead second-paced Hartley with one point with 64 points from 31 matches, with Masvingo United breathing down heavily with 61 points.

Mutare City Rovers, however, have three tough fixtures as they travel to Mutoko Traders this weekend returning home for a top-of-the-table clash with Hartley which is a potential title decider before travelling away to Ruwa Gunners.

Hartley Academy, on the other hand, will play Ruwa Gunners, before facing off with Rovers before ending their campaign at home to ZRP Masvingo.

Masvingo United will this weekend play rivals Masvingo City before hosting Melfort and finish their season away to tricky Mutoko Traders.
