Mutare City Rovers returned to the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League after amassing an unassailable 69 points with only one round of league matches remaining before the end of the 2017 season
Rovers were promoted in to the top flight football on Sunday following their 4-0 win over Buffaloes in a match played at Sakubva Stadium. Four second-half goals from veteran Hibron Makukutu, Stephen Sibanda, Evans Chikwaikwai and Hussein Zvakavapano was all Mutare City needed to open a six point gap at the top.
The municipality-owned side were relegated from the league last season. They now join Shurugwi outfit Nichrut FC who gained promotion on a Central Region ticket, Southern Region’s Bulawayo Chiefs and Herentals from the Northern Region.
