CAPS win at last, Bosso held, Dynamos tops

CAPS win at last, Bosso held, Dynamos tops
Zimbabwe's traditional big three had somehow something to smile about this week, as they at least picked up some points in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League matches played during the week. Dynamos and CAPS celebrated victories, but Highlanders dropped points in a Bulawayo derby.

Makepekepe remembered how to win matches when beating Hardbody 2-1 in Harare, in a match where former captain Rediyoni scored the winning goal at the death to complete a double, having opened the scoring in the 56th minute before Hardbody cancelled the early lead through their captain Callisto Maheya in the 68th minute.

The victory was CAPS' first in 10 matches, their last win having come against the same opponents 10 games ago.

Something is terribly wrong in the dressing room and it does not appear like any change of coaches has helped, unless Makepekepe will bring in a great motivator who could revive the team's fortunes.

Things have been rosy at Dynamos this season, and on Wednesday they overcame the challenge of tricky opponents Harare City in a fierce derby in the capital, beating Bigboy Mawiwi's plucky side 1-0 courtesy of a superb strike from defender Ocean Mushure, two minutes from time.

Coupled by Highlanders' goalless draw against Chicken Inn, in another derby match in Zimbabwe's second largest city, dubbed the City of Kings, Dynamos have now opened a two point lead at the top, and it looks like nothing will stop the DeMbare Juggernaut.

Bosso have gone 21 games without tasting defeat and will cry foul over a boardroom decision which has given Dynamos three points in a contested 4-2 victory over Hwange at some point this season.

The Zifa Appeals Court has overturned a decision by the PSL Disciplinary board to order a replay in a neutral venue. As to the fairness of the Appeals body's decision and the desirability of a precedent it sets in Zimbabwean football, the jury is still out on that one.

In other matches, title-chasing Monomotapa had their aspirations derailed by a late equaliser by relegation fighting Blue Rangers who forced a 1-1 draw at Gwanzura Stadium.

Motor Action rued a penalty miss by defender Morris Kadzola and a horrible defensive blunder by the same player which allowed Black Mambas to scramble home a point in their match at the Motor Action Sports Club.

Meanwhile, there is no smile on Moses Chunga yet following his return to Gunners after his club suffered a consecutive defeat at home at Larfarge where they succumbed to a 0-1 loss to Mutare-based Buffaloes.

Dynamos are enjoying top sport, and Bosso, for all their record-breaking efforts of going 21-matches without loss, are kicking their heels in second place.

Quelaton, who look destined for Division One football next season remain stuck at the bottom with only six points thus far and their 4-0 defeat to FC Platinum did not help matters for the Bulawayo based outfit.
