Basking in the glory of good results is Makepekepe coach, Lloyd Chitembwe, one of the few gaffers in the top flight yet to taste a defeat this season – as he prepare to take on the troubled Saul Chaminuka’s side, Boarder Strikers, this afternoon, who are also yet to collect maximum points, neither home nor away, since their promotion into the premiership this year.

A win by any margin would see the Harare based club taking the pole position after the log leaders, FC Platinum, were held to a nil all draw by the Taurai Mangwiro led team.
Having played four games so far, United managed to snatch 3 sets of maximum points, sharing a 1 all stalemate with Ngezi Platinum in the process to collect 10 points out of a possible 12.
Makepekepe have celebrated 7 goals to date, despite conceding twice, – on their 1 all draw, and when they beat Harare City by 2 goals to 1, to produce a positive goal difference of 5, 1 above FC Patinum who are on top with 13 points from 5 games.
If form and psychological advantage have something to go by, today’s results are likely to favour the Green Machine after they dismissed their eternal rivals, Dynamos FC, a week ago through a Dominic Chungwa’s 76th minute strike.
New Boys, Boarder Strikers, are languishing in the unfashionable mucky waters of relegation after a false start that have seen the BeitBridge based side failing to collect even a single point in as many as 360 minutes of football action action, with a negative goal difference of -5.
Joining them in the danger zone of the log standings are Mutare City, Hwange and Dynamos, who are occupying it in ascending order respectively, with all 4 teams with a game in hand.
Paulo Silva’s Dembare will lock horns with Chipangano at the mighty Colliery Stadium this afternoon in a do or die relegation battle, with Silva trying to save his job after narrowly surviving the chop last week after his side succumbed to a 1 nil loss to CAPS United.
