Bulawayo giants Highlanders are still in the picture on 38 points following their 2-1 victory over basement side Border Strikers at Dulivhadzimu.
However, their coach Erol Akbay is now singing a tune of caution about their chances of winning the title.
"I think we played a good game at Border Strikers. What's important is that we got three points and it really helped us edge closer to the top teams. There are eight games to play, though, which translate to 24 points.
"In a way, it's still an open race, but I believe we are far off the pace. We are six points behind the leaders. Obviously we cannot have control over the results of our competitors.
"We can only hope they drop points along the way and we have told our boys that every game that we play is very important and we need maximum points.
"Personally, I believe that any team that scores well has the greatest potential to win the title. CAPS United and FC Platinum have shown they can do it.
"But I think FC Platinum have not done that well in the last six or so games," said Akbay.
