Bantu eye Premiership return


Zifa Buscod Southern Region Division One football side Bantu Rovers is eyeing a return to top-flight football action after dispatching New West City 4-1 at Luveve Stadium on Saturday.

Both teams have played 12 games with the former Premiership side winning six matches, drawing four and losing two while Quelaton have won eight matches, drawn two and lost two.

Bantu Rovers, who are still under coach Gift Lunga (Snr) and is assisted by player/coach Johannes Ngodzo, scored through Elvis Moyo, Levison Dube, Nqobizitha Masuku and Gremah Ndebele.

Former Highlanders midfielder Richard Choruma was man-of-the-match in the game, radiating his experience to the rest of the young players.

Ngodzo, who was attending a funeral, missed the weekend match.

Quelaton maintained their stranglehold at the top after beat Hwange Juniors 3-1 in the coal-mining town.

Second-placed Railstars, who are three points behind Quelaton and are in serious contention for the championship, beat Power Cosmos 1-0 at Raylton Sports Club to keep the pacesetters on check.

Njanji have also played 12 games, won six, drawn five and only lost one match.

Log-anchors Kujatana-Victoria Falls United walloped Makokoba City Warriors 3-0 in the resort town.

In other matches, Makhandeni Pirates beat police side Black Boots 2-0 at White City Stadium to shoot to position five.

They are now on 19 points from 12 matches. Hwange sides Mpumalanga and ZPC had a harvest of goals with the former beating How Mine 3-1 and the latter Sao Paulo 4-1.

Struggling Zambezi Lions won their second match of the season beating Ntabazinduna Prison 2-1 on Sunday.
