The battle for the PSL accolade has entered a home stretch with this year’s title likely to go to the live wire just like last year’s championship which was decided on the last day.
The four teams in contention, Dynamos, Ngezi Platinum, FC Platinum and Chicken Inn are involved in tricky encounters with some facing teams that are fighting to survive the dreaded chop while some are facing rejuvenated sides who can be party spoilers.
Action continues in the PSL with matchday 27 fixtures giving title contenders a torrid time.
Teams that are stuck in the murky waters of relegation seem to be a hurdle for those vying for the most lucrative prize.
Second placed Ngezi Platinum face an unpredictable Tsholotsho at Baobab Stadium tomorrow.
