Exciting Zifa Southern region Division One fixtures are lined up for Luveve Stadium in Bulawayo this afternoon as log leaders Talen Vision host Moto Moto, while Bulawayo City take on Indlovu Iyanyathela as the race for Premiership promotion gathers momentum.
The Mkhuphali Masuku-coached Talen Vision have eight games to wrap up the season with 46 points from 20 games, while former Premier Soccer League side Bulawayo City, coached by Try Ncube, lag behind by three points with a game in hand.
Last week, Talen Vision registered an away win when they beat Mainline 2-0 at Dingumuzi in Plumtree, with goals from Adonis Nyoni and Obadiah Tarumbwa to stay afloat in the league.
Bulawayo City faltered and were held to a goalless draw by struggling Toronto away from home.
The local authority side beat Indlovu Iyanyathela 1-0 in the reverse fixture at Mzilikazi Barracks in June and will be out to make sure they pile pressure on Talen Vision by completing a double over the army side today.
Last week, Indlovu Iyanyathela beat CIWU 1-0 while Moto Moto played a 1-1 draw with Mosi Rovers at home.
Talen Vision were held 1-1 by Moto Moto, another army side in Hwange in the back-to-back fixture, with the coal-mining side getting an equaliser four minutes into optional time.
