After taking a two week break, the domestic premiership action resumes this weekend with all eyes on log leaders Caps United who now need just two wins to be crowned the 2016 premiership champions despite results from other teams, with Lloyd Chitembwe calling for maximum concentration from his charges.

Log leaders Caps United this weekend head into battle hoping a two week break would not affect their rhythm in the domestic premiership when they host Tonderai Ndiraya’s Ngezi Platinum who are basking in the African Safari glory after dismissing FC Platinum 3-1 in the Chibuku super Cup finals a fortnight ago.
Enjoying a two point cushion at the summit of the log with two games to play, Makepekepe face a tricky Ngezi Platinum at the National Sports Stadium.
Caps United is however hoping top pick up from where they left off after overcoming Harare City 0-1 at Rufaro stadium in their last PSL outing.
But Makepekepe gaffer Lloyd Chitembwe has called his charges to remain focused.
“We are leading but we haven’t won, hence the need for maximum concentration if we are to end the season with something in our hands,” he said.
“We treat each game with respect and our aim is to collect maximum points so we edge closer to the title, but we are not undermining our opponents,” he added.
Victory against Ngezi Platinum would be a giant leap for Caps United who would require one more win to land the 2016 PSL crown.
Breathing down Makepekepe’s neck is FC Platinum who are two points adrift of the Green Machine.
The Zvishavane based side will however have to be at their best as they face Highlanders who are third on 53 points.
In Bulawayo, Tsholotsho FC clash against Bulawayo City with Chicken Inn facing off with Border Strikers at Luveve Stadium.
Dynamos make a trip to the lowveld for a date with Triangle while ZPC Kariba host How Mine.
The weekend’s other encounters will see Mutare City Rovers hosting Harare City while Hwange will host Chapungu at the Colliery.
