United however received a timely boost as they welcome veteran Leonard Tsipa, who is currently leading the golden boot race on the domestic scene.
The recovery of Achford Gutu, Abbas Amidu and Dominic Chungwa from the casualties will also give Chitembwe the chance to cast his net wider.
Jorum Muchambo will be in goals, replacing Zikipa who is nursing an injury.
Hardlife Zvirekwi will be assigned to the right back whilst Ronald Pfumbidzai will operate from the left.
Steven Makatuka and Denis Dauda will be on the centre back to complete the rear guard.
Devon Chafa and Kudzi Nyamupfukudza will be the defensive linkmen, whilst Phineas Bhamusi and Simba Nhivi will control the proceedings on the left and right flanks respectively.
Joel Ngodzo will be assigned just behind Leonard Tsipa, with the later’s duty being to do the killing.
