FC Wangu Mazodze which had maintained a grip on the first position finally slid to second position after losing to visitors Rusitu Tigers at Mucheke Stadium on Sunday.
The loss reduces the team’s chances of promotion into Premier League (PSL) a dream they have been harboring since the start of the campaign.
The team played very well but missed a number of clear chances and eventually lost by a goal to nil.
FC Wangu Mazodze spokesperson Sukuoluhle Ndlovu said despite the loss, they still had chances to get back on top and to continue with the campaign.
“We still have hopes for PSL promotion, we once got on second place but we managed to return on the top of the log, so we will be the log leaders once again soon since we are only 2 points behind log leaders Tenax FC,” said Ndlovu.
She said the team played very well but failed to score, but they are still in the game and hope to capitalize on their next game.
“Nothing went wrong, the team played to its best, they just failed to convert the chances they got into goals and we lost all the 3 points, but we are still in the race because we are confident that we are going to win against Ruwa based Midway FC,” said Ndlovu.
She said they were prepared to bounce back saying their technical team was doing its best for the team to come back to its winning ways and will no longer tolerate any loss or draw.
“Our technical team is doing its best to make sure that the team goes back to its winning streak and eventually make it to promotion,” said Ndlovu.
Tennax FC is now on top of the log with 41 points followed by FC Wangu Mazodze with 39 points. On third position is Bikita Minerals with 37 and Rusitu FC is on fourth position again with 37 points.
