NEW Zifa Southern Region Division One leaders will be looking to extend their lead when they take on New West City at Luveve Stadium this afternoon.
The prisons team took over the top following the expulsion of Zimbabwe Saints and Kabwe Warriors. The points were awarded to the uniformed services team.
The league is now made up of 14 teams and the Agent Sawu-coached side now lead the pack with 15 points from eight matches while New West City dropped to position nine with nine points from six matches.
Plumtree Chiefs coached by Thulani Sibanda who had enjoyed their stay on pole position are now second with 14 points from seven matches, at par with seasoned campaigners Tsholotsho FC, who have played six matches.
Tsholotsho FC, coached by Lizwe Sweswe, will be away today to new boys Old Nic Mine and could spring to the top if they win at the mine and Ntabazinduna fail to collect maximum points against New West City.
Tsholotsho FC, who play their home matches in the outlying rural areas, are the only team yet to lose a match in the league.
Mpumalanga, who lost their last two away matches and are on position 10 with seven points from six matches, will be back at home this afternoon against army side Elephant FC in Hwange.
Elephant FC have played eight matches and are position 12 with six points. Zimbabwe Saints and Kabwe were expelled from the league for failing to fulfill fixtures and the two sides are struggling financially.
Today: New West City v Ntabazinduna Prison (Luveve),
Old Nic Mine v Tsholotsho FC (Old Nic Mine),
