Chapungu skating on thin ice


DESPITE getting three points from their abandoned match against Chiredzi which gave them relative safety, Chapungu still remain in danger of relegation from the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League this season.


At this stage, they will not be wishing to face the defending champions Dynamos, who are obviously looking for revenge after being humiliated 0-1 in the reverse fixture at Ascot Stadium.

As the Airforce of Zimbabwe side heads to Rufaro this Sunday to face Dynamos, they are aware that How Mine’s possible win over Chiredzi tomorrow will make things even more difficult for them.

They have 32 points, in line with How Mine, and three ahead of Shabanie Mine who face Bantu Rovers on Saturday.

Since the formation of the Central Soccer League in 2010, only FC Platinum have managed to avoid the chop on their promotion while two of the league’s victors Hardbody and Tripple B have failed to avoid the drop.

Chapungu seemed set to be the second team to join the league of FC Platinum with a domineering home form where they have managed to avoid defeat thus far in the league, but their away form has been a bother.

The Airmen have only managed to win once in the league away from home with a 1-0 triumph over Black Rhinos.

They have also managed to score three goals away from home, in the win against Black Rhinos, the 1-2 loss to Chicken Inn and the 4-1 hammering in Hwange.

With five games left, they have three away fixtures to champions Dynamos, Highlanders and How Mine. If they fail to improve on their form on the road, they are assured to get nothing from those fixtures.

From the remaining two home matches they host fellow relegation candidates Bantu Rovers and they will also play an army derby against Black Rhinos in Gweru.
