Yadah were guaranteed safety after they beat Highlanders 2-1 in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match-day 33 clash played in Harare on Sunday.

The visitors opened the scoring in the 25th minute when Ralph Matema’s effort was deflected into the back of the net by Jimmy Dzingai.

Yadah got a chance to restore parity in the 34th minute when they were awarded a penalty but Ariel Sibanda denied Witness Savanhu.

However, Dzingai equalised for Yadah on the stroke of halftime. The home team went into the lead on for the first time, two minutes into the second half courtesy of Rodrick Mutuma’s goal.

Mutuma’s strike proved to be the decider in the match as it ended 2-1 in favour of Yadah FC.

Yadah remained on 12th position with 40 points

Across the city, CAPS United were held to a goalless draw against visiting Bulawayo City.

At Colliery, Harare City’s hopes of surviving relegation suffered a blow when they lost 2-0 to Hwange.
