FORMER Premier Soccer league sides Telone and Tenax have bounced back to the topflight after successful campaigns in the Central and Eastern region Division One leagues.
Telone and Tenax join Arenel Movers were promoted from the Southern region while the fourth team will be determined on the last day of the season in the Northen region this weekend.
After just one season in the lower league Prison and Correctional Services side Tenax have bounced back to the PSL after winning the ZIFA Eastern region on a dramatic final day.
Tenax went into the last day of the season in third position but they managed to sneak past Bikita Minerals and FC Wangu Mazodze to claim the sole ticket to the PSL.
Tenax thumped JM Busha 6-1 while Bikita Minerals and Wangu Mazodze were held in their respective matches.
Tenax were relegated from the Premier Soccer League last year, together with fellow Prisons and Correctional outfit Whawha.
Meanwhile, it is all smiles for another former PSL side Telone who are back with the big boys after winning the Central Region Division One league.
Telone who were relegated in 2019 confirmed their promotion after they ruthlessly thumped MSU five-nil to attain an unassailable 61 points with a game to spare.
With Arenel having already been promoted from the Southern region, only one ticket is left and Chegutu Pirates or Black Mambas who will be promoted from the northern region.
Chegutu Pirates leapfrogged Black Mambas into pole position courtesy of a one-nil victory over Warumwa Warumwa at Pfupajena stadium.
Chegutu Pirates face Herentals under-20 in their last match of the season knowing that they will be promoted if they collect maximum points.
Black Mambas who have been at the top of the table for the better part of the season can only hope for the best when they travel to Trojan Mine.
