TSHOLOTSHO FC could be the team to watch in the Zifa Southern Region Division One league this year after they crushed champions Plumtree Chiefs 3-0 at White City Stadium on Saturday to close the gap on log leaders Ntabazinduna Prison.
It was Plumtree Chiefs’ third defeat in the league, the second after the departure of coach Thulani Sibanda following a 1-2 loss to Technosphere at the same venue last week.
Lizwe Sweswe’s Tsholotsho are now on 23 points from 11 matches with Ntabazinduna, coached by Agent Sawu, going a point up to 25 on Saturday after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Elephant FC at HQ1 Brigade.
Last week Ntabazinduna suffered a second defeat of the season, losing 1-2 to Trumus in Victoria Falls and on Saturday played the 13th match leaving Tsholotsho with a two-game advantage and only two points behind.
Technosphere collected maximum points once again on Saturday with a 2-0 win over Black Boots in Hwange and are on position three with 22 points from 11 matches.
In the only other match played on Saturday, Hwange Juniors beat Trumus 2-0 away from home in Victoria Falls, but remained on position eight with 16 points from 11 games while Trumus went to position six with 17 points.
Three matches were postponed over the weekend with Quelaton and New West City requesting for deferments against Mpumalanga and Old Nic Mine while Portland Cement are out of action as they are still dealing with their financial issues.
