The Premier Soccer League yesterday set the tone for an exciting finish to this year’s championship race after the authorities directed the top three teams; CAPS United, Highlanders and FC Platinum, to play their remaining fixtures at the same time. The top three will this week play their matches on Saturday with leaders CAPS United playing Harare City at Rufaro, while FC Platinum faces Chapungu and Highlanders host Tsholotsho at Barbourfields.
PSL competitions manager Elisha Mandireva said in the spirit of Fair Play and to avoid heaping unjust pressure, all the matches featuring the title contenders will be played on the same day this week,
We have decided to let it so this week and see how it goes. But we are still going to review after the weekend matches to see if it will be necessary up to the end of the season.
Bosso, who usually play their home matches on Sunday, were the only team that was affected by the directive this week. CAPS United will be away at Harare City who play on Saturdays while Chapungu and FC Platinum also play home matches on the same day.
