The Reuben Tsengwa-coached Bantu Rovers are now on 53 points from 25 games and will still maintain the top spot even if second-placed How Mine beat Power Cosmos in Hwange today.
How Mine, who have put up a strong contest for the Premiership berth, are on 49 points from 24 games and have to win against Power Cosmos if they intend to keep their title hopes alive with 10 games remaining to the end of the season. Chasing the title is ZPC Hwange, who are away to prison officers Ntabazinduna Prison today. ZPC Hwange, are on position three with 48 points from 25 matches.
Former Premiership side Zimbabwe Saints also picked up a point when they were held to a 1-1 draw by New West City at Zim Saints Club in Queen Park East on Saturday.
Railstars beat struggling Projects 2-0 in Hwange on Saturday while police side Black Boots collected maximum points at home in Fairbridge after dismissing Hwange Juniors 2-1 on the same day. Troubled Rufaro Rovers were lucky to earn three points from fellow strugglers Emakhandeni Pirates, who failed to travel to Hwange and appear to have accepted a possible place in Division Two next year.
