…as they thrash unlucky DeMbare at Gibbo
CHIREDZI – Triangle United FC have revived their hopes of winning the 2018 Premier Soccer League (PSL) or to at least finish the season with good points after netting six points from the previous two matches they have played.

Ngezi Platinum is on top with a sound 38 points followed by FC Platinum, also with 38 points.
The Sugar Sugar Boys have so far lost five games and have settled for a draw in two, but they have won eight matches and are hoping to win the remaining 13 so that they can finish the season with 65 points.
The team’s coach, Taurai Mangwiro said he was pleased by the team’s latest level of performance, saying the winning spirit ought to continue.
“I am excited by my team’s performance especially the victory against Dembare and Mutare Rovers. I cannot single out any player, the team has done fairly well,” said Mangwiro.
