HWANGE . . . . . . . . . . . (2)3
BANTU ROVERS . . . . . . . .0
Hwange moved to within four points of the safety zone with a win over struggling Bantu Rovers in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match played at the Colliery Stadium yesterday.
The coal miners recovered from a three-match losing streak against
title-chasers Dynamos, Chicken Inn and FC Platinum, to cut the gap between themselves and Yadah FC, who occupy the last safe spot, to four points.
Delic Murimba, Justine Kaunda and Cryber Muvuti scored for the Bigboy Mawiwi-coached side, as they enhanced their chances of survival with 10 more matches still to be played.
Murimba opened the scoring on 15 minutes, while Kaunda doubled the lead a minute before half-time.
Muvuti then ensured that the win was emphatic for the home side, with a goal in the 81st minute.
Hwange have to date amassed 23 points from 24 matches, while Bantu remained stuck to the bottom of the table with just 12 points from the same number of matches.
They have only managed just three wins this season, while they also earned points from the same number of draws. By Sports reporter
