Debswana First Division South side, Mochudi Centre Chiefs’ 3-0 win over Mochudi Rovers in the Mochudi derby has thrown the race for automatic qualification wide open.

Magosi kept their dream of returning to the Premier League next season alive by scoring three goals against rivals, Rovers at a packed River Plate ground in Mochudi Saturday afternoon, thanks to Marlven Moyo’s headed goal and Emmanuel Thabe’s brace.

The win put Chiefs who are in second position, just five points adrift top spot after log leaders Holy Ghost played to a draw against Matebele FC. The Saturday results set the First Division South league for a thrilling finish with just three games to go. Chiefs showed their intentions clear from the first whistle, with Arnold Mampori controlling the tempo of match and pulling strings in the middle of the park. Mampori saw his hurriedly taken shot fly over the bar in the first minute after good interchange of passes. A few minutes later in the fifth minute, Moyo missed a golden opportunity to open the scoring when he found himself one on one with the keeper. The skillful attacker got at the end of a long ball from the back but could not capitalise as he shot wide.
