Mighty Warriors captain Emmaculate Msipa’s Spanish Segunda Division side, Almassora has dropped into the relegation zone at the worst possible time after letting slip a two-nil lead to settle for a share of the spoils against Cordoba on Sunday.
Despite losing only two of their last eight matches Almassora, seem to be paying the price for a slow start to the season and the weekend draw against Cordoba left them fourth from bottom with just one match before the end of the season.
Four teams will be relegated and Msipa and her teammates will be praying for a win and hope that Levante or Fermaguin drop points on the last day of the season.
The Mighty Warriors caption has been a constant feature in Almassora’s midfield after moving to the club late last year.
In Zambia, Warriors defenders Jimmy Dzingai and Takudzwa Chimwemwe’s Nkana continue to sing the blues after losing 2-1 to Lusaka Dynamos this Sunday.
Nkana are second from bottom in the league that will see four teams being relegated with seven games to go.
However, Nkana take solace from the fact that they have four games in hand over other teams facing relegation.
In Scotland, David Moyo’s Hamilton were relegated after losing 2-nil to Kilmarnock in a match they needed to win by over 10 goals to survive.
The Warriors striker has indicated that he will be staying at the club.
Meanwhile, Tapiwa Kapini, is still harbouring hopes of returning to the South African DStv Premiership after leading Sekhukhune to another win over the weekend.
Kapini’s club is second on the log and will be hoping to pip the top team for automatic qualification into the league.
