CHIPINGE -The Eastern Region Soccer League log leaders Greenfuel FC has high chances of gaining Premier Soccer League with three to spare if they win the next two games. The ‘ethanol boys’ as Greenfuel is fondly known by its supporters, has put a 23-match unbeaten streak, punctuated by 18 wins and five draws and amassed 59 points out of a possible 66 in the process.
It is looking forward to maintaining its fine run in its next encounter when the league resumes after the break. The league took a two-week break last weekend to give players time to rest and is expected to resume on August 20. Greenfuel FC, however, is back in training today after a one-week break.
Lloyd ‘Samaita’ Mutasa’s charges will take on Melfort FC on August 20 in an away encounter, and hope to gain promotion with games three games to spare.
Mutasa has made it 10 out of 10 in his last encounters and Greenfuel will win promotion into PSL if they win their next two fixtures against Melfort and Graham with three games remaining. He also said he is happy with how his charges have fared in the league and their consistency.
“We are back at training. We only took a week’s break. We hope to play a game with any of the teams just to keep the boys fit. We have gone for 23 games without tasting any defeat. This is okay with us. We hope to continue with this fine form as the league resumes,” he said.
Mutasa is cautious despite a comfortable lead. He also showered his charges with praises for scoring in all their second-half outings.
“At this point, every team wants to break our unbeaten record. It’s good to gain promotion with games to spare. The next two games are very important to us and we will put more effort to win them.
“We have been scoring in all our matches after the mid-term break and we have won all the matches, making it ten out of ten. As a coach I am happy with the consistency,” said the former Dynamos mentor.https://masvingomirror.com
