Railstars destroy Zambezi Lions


Railstars FC put their troubles aside when they thumped Zambezi Lions 5-1 in the Buscod Southern Region Division One football match at White City Stadium on Saturday.

Chaos rocked their league match against Mpumalanga a week earlier after Master Mlangeni and Julios Daudi assaulted Mpumalanga medic Mlungisi Zhanero at Raylton Sports Club.

The league match was cancelled after Mpumalanga refused to play alleging that their safety was not guaranteed and made a report to the police.

On Thursday, Railstars were fined
$1 200 and a rematch against Mpumalanga within seven days after they were found guilty of failing to properly secure the ground.

Railstars were ordered by the disciplinary committee to play at Luveve Stadium in an empty stadium and foot travelling costs for Mpumalanga and meet the referee’s costs and the ground costs on the day.

Coach Mandla Mpofu, Tirivaviri Sithole and Lindelani Ncube were each fined $200.

They have also been ordered that their league games at Raylton should have a minimum of seven police officers until a further review by the committee is done.

Zambezi Lions are third from the bottom of the log with 18 points.

In other matches Quelaton continued to rule the roost when they edged Ntabazinduna 1-0 at White City Stadium.

Quelaton still top the log table with 58 points after the weekend victory.

Former Premiership side Bantu Rovers played a goalless draw against Mpumalanga away in Hwange.

Bantu Rovers are slowly losing the plot as they trail Quelaton by 14 points.
