The Bulawayo giants shot top the top of the standings on Sunday after edging Caps United 1-0 at Barbourfields Stadium.
With the league race having reached the halfway mark, Highlanders are tied on 30 points with FC Platinum but enjoy a superior goal difference and both teams have a game on hand.
Their biggest threat are Caps United and a rejuvenated Dynamos who have dropped just four points out of a possible 21 in their last seven games and in the process exhibiting the spirit that made them champions between 2001 and 2014.
“Everything is going according to the script for us at the moment although we could have done better. We cannot complain though,” Akbay said.
“We have some good chances to finish as champions. But it is not an easy race because other teams are doing well as well. Look at FC Platinum, Caps and Dynamos. Even ZPC (Ka iba) cannot be ruled out. AS for us we just need to concentrate on getting all those points and remain on course.”
Highlanders however have already lost Knox Mutizwa who has joined South African side Wits University wand could also part ways with utility player Bruce Kangwa who has been linked with a move to Tanzanian outfit Azam.
Kangwa who this season has been playing as a midfielder tops the PSL goal-scoring chart with seven goals.
