Both leaders Motor Action and second placed Dynamos have 63 points each. Motor Action are on top on goal difference and only need a win of any margin against Lengthens to clinch their first ever league title. This will boost their 10th year celebrations.
Such a close finish has not happened ever since Dynamos beat Blackpool on goal difference 11 years ago.
Should the Mighty Bulls who ironically bought Blackpool’s franchise in 2000 slip or draw against the Happy People and De Mbare win against Black Mambas the Glamour Boys will take the title.
The closest that has come to this year and in 1999 was in 2005 when CAPS United had to thank Dynamos for beating Masvingo United on the last day of the season at Mucheke Stadium to win the league title by a single point.
What has made the 2010 title race even more interesting is the fact that Lengthens and Black Mambas also have a battle of their own. Lengthens occupy the fourth relegation position but have the same number of points with Black Mambas.
Lengthens and Motor Action risk to be relegated to the unfashionable world of division one football if any of them loses the match.
In order to avoid match fixing the Premier Soccer League has arranged that both matches be played at the same time.
