Story by Anashe Murombedzi, Sports Reporter

THE Castle Lager Premier Soccer League title race has been blown wide open after defending champions FC Platinum moved to withing five points of log leaders Ngezi Platinum with eight matches to go before the end of the season.

The PSL title race is slowly becoming a T-junction where anything can reach the centre from any direction.

This comes after rejuvenated FC Platinum piled the pressure on log leaders Ngezi Platinum after a one-nil victory over their sister club.

The victory saw Norman Mapeza’s charges moving up to second with 46 points just five points behind Ngezi Platinum, with eight matches to go before the end of the season.

Highlanders failed to capitalise and slipped further down to third with 45 points after a disappointing three-nil loss to Simba Bhora.

Fellow giants Dynamos all but surrendered their title charge after a one-nil defeat by Herentals which saw Dembare moving out of the top four to fifth, three points behind Manica Diamonds who have 43 points.

Meanwhile, the battle for survival is getting intense after most of the teams in the relegation matrix won their respective matches.

Fading giants, CAPS United moved up to 30 points after winning their first match in 10 outings but that did not change much as other teams fighting to stay afloat like Sheasham, Green Fuel and Yadah also collected maximum points.

CAPS United are on 30 points, the same tally as Sheasham, Yadah and ZPC Kariba who occupy the last relegation slot.

The two army sides Black Rhinos and Cranborne Bulletins anchor the log standings below Triangle who have lost their way this season.
