Bantu Rovers shoot to the top


Former Premiership side Bantu Rovers shot to the top of the Zifa Southern Region Division One football league after posting two victories at the weekend.

Bantu Rovers beat ZPC Hwange 2-0 at Luveve Stadium on Friday before dismissing another ex-top flight football side Zimbabwe Saints 1-0 at the same venue on Sunday. The two wins ensured the Reuben Tsengwa-coached Tshintsha Guluva collected six points and are now on 21 points from nine matches.

How Mine, however, remain gnawing at Bantu Rovers’ heels after dispatching New West City 5-2 at the gold mine on Friday.

The gold miners are on 20 points from nine matches. ZPC Hwange remain perched on position three despite the 2-0 loss to Bantu Rovers on Friday with 16 points from eight matches, followed by Tsholotsho FC, who drew 1-1 with Power Cosmos in Tsholotsho.

Newcomers, Tsholotsho, rose from position six to four dislodging Railstars and New West City, who were defeated at the weekend.

Railstars fell 2-1 to police side Black Boots at Fairbridge on Sunday and slipped to position five from four, making way for Tsholotsho although the two sides are neck-on-neck on 15 points from eight matches.

Black Boots went on to beat Emakhandeni Pirates 2-0 in Fairbridge and they moved from 14th to eighth position.
