The Castle Lager Premier Soccer League race continues with the top spot still too hot to handle.

First it was Triangle and then Dynamos took over before Triangle regained the lead. But now it is Chicken Inn. The Bulawayo side, who are commonly known here as the Game Corks are at the top of the table with 15 points after their hard fought 1-0 win over neighbours, How Mine.

Chicken Inn coach Joey Antipas is boasting that this is their year.

Chicken Inn have overtaken Triangle, who were surprisingly beaten 1-0 by Nesbert Saruchera’s newly promoted Flame Lilly.

More importantly was the fact that this was the Prisons Warders’ first-ever win since their promotion into the premiership at the beginning of the season.

But Dynamos remain the only unbeaten side after picking up a valuable away point at Harare City. The Sunshine City boys dominated the game but could not break the solid Dynamos defence.

Harare City coach Taurayi Mangwiro thinks his team deserved to win the match.

The former Caps United coach is crying for the lost valuable two points.

Financially-crippled Caps United could only manage a one-all draw against ZPC Kariba at the National Sports Stadium but coach Mark Harrison thinks they should have won the game.

While Antipas and Mangwiro are talking of the championship, pressure continues to pile on FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza after his youthful side stuttered to another defeat this time at the hands of Hwahwa Prisons.

Mapeza’s side were beaten 2-1, leaving them with only four points from six games and way down the perking order to 13th position in the 16 team assembly.

The other results were as follows: Dongo Sawmills 2; Highlanders 3; Chapung 0, Hwange 0 and Tsholotsho 0, Buffaloes 0.
