    ZVISHAVANE - Shabani FC (Chinda Boys) are in no mood to let off the pedal as they maintain the momentum on a Premiership comeback after chalking out another win (2-1) on the road against Gwanda based Vhumbachikwe.
    Chinda Boys' victory put them to 57 points with only three games left before the end of the Central Region Division 1 League. Second placed Blanked Mine kept the heat on the log leaders after collecting maximum points against army side Tongogara with a 3-1 score line raising their points tally to 56.
    The Chinda Boys head coach Tendai Chikuni said he would take each game as it comes as he does not want to put his charges under unnecessary pressure.
    "We do not want to put ourselves under pressure so we are taking each game at it comes. If you ask everyone in Zvishavane, they will tell you that they want a return to the Premiership but the road is not easy therefore we have to work hard especially in our remaining fixtures.
    "Remember we are only a point ahead of Blanket who are gunning for the same slot so we only have to keep the faith just like a farmer who plants and expect to harvest at the end of the season," said Chikuni.
    While The Chinda Boys supporters were in jubilation, it was a different story across town at Mandava stadium where Norman Mapeza's FC Platinum continued to reduce their opportunity of a maiden championship after being held to a 1 all draw by visiting Ngezi Platinum FC.
    Kugona kunenge kudada fans were baying for Mapeza's head and had to be dismissed by security details to allow the gaffer to leave the stadium safely.
    The draw was the second consecutive time that the club lost maximum points leaving their title hopes hanging by a thread. FC Platinum are now on third position with 2 points behind log leaders Caps United who made a dramatic comeback in a three all derby draw against bitter rivals Dynamos on Sunday a point behind rejuvenated Highlanders who battered hapless Bulawayo City 3-1 on Sunday.
    "It's disappointing," said Mapeza after the game. "I take the blame. I failed to get a positive result but life goes on. Fans are angry because they wanted a win but we have to remain united."
