Motor Action widen gap, CAPS revival continues

The Premier Soccer League weekend action in Zimbabwe saw the big teams in the league posting good results against lowly clubs to enhance their march up the log.

In-form log leaders Motor Action, continued to show their dominance in the PSL by collecting maximum points away at Hwange, an intimidating venue for any team in the country on any given day.

Few teams have gone to the colliery stadium and returned with maximum points. The Mighty Bulls overcame the challenge of Hwange 1-0.

CAPS United have continued their revival song under the directorship of music conductor Moses 'Bambo' Chunga. Makepekepe concluded a league double over visiting FC Victoria whom they walloped 2-0 at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday, after having beaten them 1-0 away at Mucheke Stadium about  a week ago. 

Back in favour goalkeeper Edmore Sibanda scored from a free-kick, not a penalty spot, in the match against FC Victoria. It is rare to see goalkeepers scoring from free-kicks in local football.

Highlanders also completed a double over Douglas Warriors at Barbourfields with a 4-1 thrashing of the Douglas Tanyanyiwa owned outfit. Bosso had won the reverse fixture 1-0 last week.

Defending champions Gunners dropped two crucial points at home when they were held to a goalless draw by fast improving Black Mambas. Lengthens continue to blow hot and cold. After drawing last week, they were back to winnning ways against Kiglon whom they beat 2-0 on Sunday.

The Shooting Stars v Hwange match was postponed on Sunday due to the absence of police officers at the venue. Referee Nomore Masandire, consulting with the match commissioner Solomon Makuvaro, postponed the match for the reason that there were no police officials in sight.

It is not clear if there are rules which stipulate that a league match in the PSL can not go ahead without police presence. It appears that Shooting stars were required to have arranged for the presence of police officers at the match venue.

Motor Action at 41 points, now lead second placed Dynamos by a whopping 13 points. Dembare have four games in hand, and should they win all their remaining games, they could close the gap to only 1 point. 

Dynamos, who have just failed in their bid to keep alive their slim chances of a semi-final berth in the Champions League in a group encounter loss to TP Mazembe on Sunday, are well aware that  a bird in hand is worth two in the bush.

Though some soccer analysts have been tempted to call the league race a two-horse race, it is too early to say, given the warning signs from CAPS United now under Chunga. CAPS are giving the country a reminder of their late charge in the league last season. 

A combination of good performances by CAPS between now and end of the season and a slump in form by either of Motor Action or Dynamos could open the chance for CAPS to spring a surprise and win the league.

It doesn't look like Motor Action are in the mood to drop any points this season. The race for league championship appears to be slowly becoming more exciting than it has been in the last few months.

With Dynamos out of reckoning for a semi-final place in the Champions league, with CAPS on a revival path and Motor Action showing a strong grip on pole position, the final 10 games of the season are set to become very interesting.
