Zvishavane-based premiership side Shabanie Mine is hopeful of maintaining its premiership status despite a perilous position on the log table.

The Chinda Boys as they are affectionately known are currently occupying 13th position with 39 points, three clear of the chop off zone with a game to play.

Destiny still lies in Shabanie Mine’s hands as a point in their final match against Yadah Stars at home will be enough to secure safety.

Head coach Takesure Chiragwi, believes his side has what it takes to avoid relegation and also called upon the team’s fans to rally behind his charges in their final encounter at Maglas stadium.

 Safety can, however, be still be attained even if Shabanie Mine loses as long as any of the sides below it fails to collect maximum points.

With Tsholotsho and Bantu Rovers already confirmed relegated, the two municipality owned sides, Bulawayo City and Harare City together with Hwange are also not safe.

The Chinda Boys will need the yesteryear spirit that turned Maglas stadium into a fortress as they play their last encounter if they are to stay in the top flight.
