As Zimbabwe premiership soccer league competition gets hotter and hotter, most teams that are contesting for the top spot are in for a test in matches lined up for this weekend.
Chicken Inn take on Hwange
Chicken Inn, the current log leaders will face Hwange at Luveve Stadium this afternoon with the aim of collecting maximum points and maintaining their lead on the PSL log. They play Hwange who are placed 10th on the log with 22 points and have struggled most of the season.
Highlanders face WhaWha
Inconsistent Highlanders will travel to Gweru for a date against troubled WhaWha in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match at Ascot Stadium tomorrow.
After going six matches without a win, Highlanders put up a sublime show and outclassed How Mine with a 5-1 victory at Barbourfields Stadium only to lose 1-2 to FC Platinum at the same venue two days ago.
The Bulawayo giants remain on position eight on the log-standings with 25 points from six wins, seven draws and six defeats.
Tsholotsho out to derail DeMbare
Current league champions, Dynamos, will be out to prove their champion merit as Barbourfields Stadium plays host to two Castle Lager Premier Soccer League matches pitting Harare giants against Tsholotsho just after the How Mine versus Triangle encounter.
The double-header will be beamed live on SuperSport 9.
Dynamos new gaffer Tonderai Ndiraya after David “Yogi” Mandigora’s departure has won his first two league games. He beat ZPC Kariba 2-1 at Rufaro last Sunday and claimed Triangle’s scalp with a 2-0 score line at Gibbo three days later.
Returning striker Roderick Mutuma has been on song, grabbing a brace in the 2-1 win over ZPC Kariba on Sunday and getting another goal at Gibbo where former Triangle striker Richard Kawondera got the winner in the 2-0 victory.
A fifth straight championship could be beckoning for the Glamour Boys, sitting on position three, but with similar number of points with Kelvin Kaindu’s Triangle. They are five points below log leaders Chicken Inn who face Hwange at Luveve Stadium this afternoon?
How Mine host Triangle.
After the 5-1 drubbing by Highlanders last Sunday, How Mine held ZPC Kariba to a 1-1 draw at Nyamhunga Stadium on Wednesday.
The injury to central defender Nelson Tachi could see the return of Gilbert Banda while Heritein Masuku, Fungai Chirinda and Benjamin Marere are doubtful starters.
Triangle, smarting from the 0-2 home defeat to Dynamos are hoping to collect maximum points and keep their dream of bringing the title to the Lowveld alive.
