The Castle Lager Premiership resumed after a two-week break and here are the five takeaways from Match-day 18 action played over the weekend.

ZPC halt FC Platinum unbeaten run

ZPC Kariba handed FC Platinum their first home defeat since June 2016 when they cruised to a 2-1 victory on Saturday. Coincidentally, the power generators were the last team to win at Mandava Stadium two years ago.

Bosso in third straight loss

Highlanders conceded their third loss in a row, losing 1-0 to Black Rhinos. This became their worst run in this season.

Mutuma returns with a bang

Rodrick Mutuma made his return to the Premier League football on a high note, scoring a brace in Nichrut’s 2-0 triumph over Mutare City. The lanky striker completed his move to the Midlands side last week from Division One club, Chegutu Pirates.

Five-star Sugar Boys

Triangle United outclassed Shabanie Mine, netting five goals without a reply in a match played at Gibbo. The result equalled Ngezi Platinum’s record of winning by the biggest margin in this season.

Zvirekwi makes his season debut

CAPS United captain Hardlife Zvirekwi made his first appearance in this season in a match against Harare City. The full-back missed the first half of the campaign following a car accident in March. He came on as a late substitute in the 87th minute, replacing Simba Nhivi.
