    So far so bad for Una Una, Pirates

    IN MASVINGO- Although it is too early to predict the team to gain promotion into the top flight league from the ZIFA Eastern Region Division 1, the going seems to be tough for the two teams from the ancient city if games played thus far are anything to go by.
    In the four games played former Premiership side Masvingo Utd have registered only one win against Renco mine with the rest ending in disappointing draws as a result the team is on seventh position, which does not augur well for a team that is fighting for honours.
    Masvingo Pirates another preseason favourite for the title are yet to register a win and they are languishing at the bottom of the log standing trailing eight points behind log leaders Checheche based Green Fuels who have ten points from four games.
    The teams need to beef up their defence and strike forces as they have only manged to score four goals.
    Gutu High Sports Director Process Gwesu said the two teams' chances of being promoted into the Premiership are getting slim and slim each week hence the need to beef up their squads if they entertain such prospects.
     "Masvingo teams have less chances to be crowned Eastern Region champions this season, they should work hard especially their strikers who are shy at goal.
    "Teams from Manicaland seem to be poised for the big one as they are just neck to neck and are playing quite well compared to those from other provinces," said the respected gaffer.
    Gwesu also suggested that the teams stand a better chance of winning the championship if they form one formidable team in the City and tap from the abundant talent from the many educational institutions scattered around by starting an academy.
    When contacted for comment Una Una coach Johanne Chikaula  said they want to beef up their defence and they are looking for other new players. 
    Masvingo Pirates spokesperson Godfrey Mtimba said its too early for them to lose hope.
