Even Dynamos coach Tonderayi Ndiraya thinks after Sunday’s result, the title is no longer in their hands.

Defending champions Dynamos have fallen behind in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League race at a time the Chevrons of Zimbabwe are celebrating.

Dembare was held to a goalless draw to fall six points behind leaders, Chicken Inn, and two behind FC Platinum.

Chicken Inn had earlier beaten How Mine 2-1 while FC Platinum overcame Whawha 2-0 and Dynamos supporter Munyaradzi Magaya says the fight for the league title is over.

Even Dynamos coach Tonderayi Ndiraya thinks after yesterday’s result, the title is no longer in their hands.

Kugona Kunenge Kudada have now gone for five months and 16 league games without defeat. The last time that FC Platinum lost a game was on May 10 when they were beaten by Dynamos.

Ironically, Platinum lost their first four games of the season. Coach Norman Mapeza is sarcastic in his response to his team’s dramatic change in fortune.

However, the Money Bags’ pedigree will be tested this week when they play top of the table Chicken Inn at Luveve Stadium.

Dynamos coach Tonderayi Ndiraya is hoping that the two teams will cancel each other while on their part they win their game against bitter rivals Caps United.

At the same time Lloyd Chitembwe’s honeymoon at Caps United finally came to an end after his team squandered an early lead to lose 2-1 to ZPC Kariba.

The result should be good news for Sunday Chidzambwa who has seen his team move out of the relegation zone.

The other Castle Lager Premiership results were as follows: Buffaloes 0, Tsholotso Pirates 0; Triangle 0, Flame Lilly 3; Hwange 1, Chapungu 0; and Highlanders 2, Dongo 0.

In cricket, celebrations continued in Zimbabwe's cricket home after the Chevrons Sunday wrapped-up the three ODI Series with a five wicket win over visiting Ireland.

Craig Ervine was the star of the show after plundering 122 runs with Sean Williams next on 51 runs.

Zimbabwe now have an assailable 2-0 lead after winning the first game by two wickets.
