NGEZI Platinum and FC Platinum have topped the league after a 100% positive performance to earn 6 points out of a possible 6 in the race to 2017 championship. The platinum miners both managed to secure maximum points in the match-day two fixtures as FC Platinum hosted Bantu Rovers beating them by 3-2 whilst Ngezi Platinum humbled Hwange at the Colliery by 3 goals to nil.
As the top two teams secured their spot on top, Highlanders who were the weekend’s favourite to collect maximum points were beaten by the new-boys Shabanie Mine at home. Bosso fans who feel that they were cheated of a clear goal when Rodrick Mutuma’s attempt was ruled offside blame the loss much on the officials.
“Referees are costing us we pay our monies so that we watch interesting football, if we are to lose let us lose fairly we cannot have referees deciding the outcome of the match.” said a visibly angry fan.
Ngezi Platinum host How Mine, while FC Platinum are away to Chicken Inn. The two will be looking at extending their unbeaten run in the league this season. Highlanders will hope to pick themselves up as they play away to Harare City who are yet to win a game this season.
