BUYMORE have vowed they will not be relegated from the top-flight league despite their precarious position as the Premier Soccer League season ambles to a close.
Placed fifth from bottom on 24 points, Buymore will need as many points as they can garner from their remaining
eight games to avoid one of the three relegation spots.
Buymore, bought by Caps Holdings recently, will have their premiership credentials under a tricky test when they visit Lancashire Steel tomorrow.
New club chairman Erasmus Chindove yesterday declared his side would even finish in the top half.
“Relegation is totally out of question,” Chindove told IndependentSport. “If anything we will end up in the upper half.”
Four other clubs — Shabanie Mine, Shooting Stars, Railstars and Black Rhinos — know too well they could face the chop as well alongside bottom-placed Zimbabwe Saints if they don’t get favourable results this weekend.
On the other hand, title favourites Highlanders will be eager to vent their wrath on struggling Black Rhinos after they went down 1-2 to defending champions Caps United last weekend.
Tomorrow: Mwana Africa v Monomatapa (Trojan), Lancashire Steel v Buymore (Baghdad), Railstars v Shooting Stars (Luveve)
Sunday: Shabanie Mine v Motor Action (Maglas) Chapungu v Zimbabwe Saints (Ascot), Highlanders v Black Rhinos (Barbourfields), Hwange v Caps United (Colliery) Dynamos v Masvingo United (Rufaro) . — Staff Writer.
