Highlanders FC supporters and neutral football followers have raised a match fixing flag in a match pitting Caps United and Dynamos today.

Dynamos raced to a three nil lead and all pointed to former champions collecting maximum points.

However, the game turned on its head in the 85th minute when Caps United pulled one back through double scorer Dennis Dauda.

Moments later, Amon Kambanje (89) added another and Dauda completed the come back deep into stoppage time.

In Bulawayo, Highlanders was cruising to a 3-1 win against Bulawayo City and looked set to climb on top of the log with 53 points.

However, the shock draw in Harare pushed Caps United to 54 points with three games to go.

However, social media users were quick to claim that the match was fixed. gleaned comments from both Highlanders and Dynamos Facebook pages.

Below are some of the comments beginning with Highlanders supporters :

Stephen Nyathi : well done lads. Bosso should play their own games. don't mind what Caps does with other teams. if we collect all 9 points left we have a higher chance of winning the league title. #Bossolona

Melusi Ndlovu : Match fixing but that will not work because Bosso is reducing the gap in each and every match

Dalubuhle Ndlovu : Lokhuya okwe dynamos yi matcht fixing strait

Babhekile Dube : Never put your money on Dembare, from leading by 3goals then concede 3 in dying minutes shuwa? The only reasonable thing was to "park the bus" if they are serious about their status as one of the biggest teams in the country, but they chose to reduce themselves to not more than suckling puppies.

Tawanda Gwaure : dont blame Dembare.this year they are disjointed and under a lot of pressure. they did their best go Bosso go.we keep on winning and they keep on drawing and we will take the trophy home.well played our boys

Mike Ndlovu : Madoda kodwa 3 goals in 5 min ngiyasola e salisbury

Chicco Gutu : When Highlanders beat Dynamos from behind with a matter of minutes it wasnt fixing,now Caps has done it you are crying foul?

Delight Moyo : No,ways these Things sold the match,Zifa nd PSL must do something

Dynamos comments : After all has been said and done caps had been tipped to steamroll past Dynamos. It was unfortunate Alimenda could not last the distance and his absence led to Caps fighting back

Harold Nkiwane : Bosso fan would like to congratulate dembare for holding Makepekepe,some may argue that it was match fixing but today im thanking for Dynamos professionalism they were organised in every department only to lapse in dying minutes,Thanks Madinadina Glamour boys you tried ur best...#Bossoforlive

Chitsenga Simon : Why did we play in the first place? We are very unprofessional guys! Am one those who dont believe in match fixing. This result is dubious. Nothing to celebrate here for both teams. Kutengesa game nekuda twuma cents or dollars. Ma bond ngaauye chokwadi hazvina kumira mushe

Simbarashe Lawrence : Lloyd Mutasa and his stupid son Wisdom out of our beloved team!!!! Who does that really? Conceding 3 goals in 3minutes? Hapana match fixing apa Mutasa is a specialist in failure!!!
