Defending champions Dynamos refused to give up on the championship race when they beat log leaders Chicken Inn 1-0 at Barbourfields Stadium.
A goal by Rodreck Mutuma 11 minutes into the match ensured that DeMbare, Zimbabwean club champions for the past four consecutive years walked away with crucial three points to move to 45 points.

The match started off an electrifying pace and ended on the same note. Guide Goddard’s blunder in conceding possession at a crucial stage saw Mutuma slot in to beat an exposed Elvis Chipezeze with Takesure Chinyama providing the assist.
Chicken Inn did create chances but could not find the equaliser. Impressive winger George Majika who troubled the Dynamos defence throughout rattled the cross bar from a rebounded Danny Phiri free kick right at the end.
