Yadah survives relegation


HARARE – Roderick Mutuma reminded Highlanders of what quality they are missing after his second half header sunk the Bulawayo giants 2-1 and ensured his side survives relegation from the Castle Lager Premiership.

Yadah are now on 40 points, four above Bulawayo City who are occupying the last slot in the relegation zone with only a single game to go before the season ends.

Highalnders had taken the lead in the first half through Ralph Matema before Jimmy Dzingai equalised for the home side shortly before halftime.

Howeve, Mutuma would decided the game shortly after the break when he headed home a cross from Denzel Savanhu.

Yadah coach Thomas Ruzive said he was happy that they have achieved their goal of surviving relegation in their maiden Premiership season.

“We are delighted that we have survived relegation which is something really good for us having set ourselves this target at the beginning of the season,” he said.

Outgoing Highlanders coach Erol Akbay said: “We lost the game and I wouldn’t have been surprised if we had gone 4-0 up in the first 15 minutes because I saw a lot of chances from both sides but defensively we were so bad.”
