Bulawayo City target 15 points to avoid relegation

By Mthokozisi Dube

Relegation haunted Bulawayo City are determined to survive the dreaded chop after setting a prime target of 15 points in the remaining league matches.

After being bundled out of the Chibuku Super Cup, Bulawayo City are turning all their attention to the battle for survival in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League.

Bulawayo City head coach Farai Tawachera is refusing to throw in the towel saying his charges will not go down without a fight.

“Ten games to go, thirty points at stake – we need to get half of the points to survive and that is our target. If we succeed and get the target, I think it will take us somewhere,” he said.

Their next assignment is against unpredictable Yadah, who have gone for seven games without a defeat in the league.

“Yadah are in better position than us, they have been winning. I think they have gone for seven games unbeaten of late. It speaks volumes about what they are capable of doing. Coming for this fixture, I am sure they will want to extend their unbeaten run, but we have our own thoughts. If you look at the way we have been playing of late, I think the three games that we have lost with identical 1 nil score-line, we have been unfortunate despite being the better team.”

Bulawayo City are involved in an interesting battle to survive alongside WhaWha, Tenax, Harare City and ZPC Kariba, with ten games before the curtain comes down on the 2022 Castle lager premier soccer league season.
