Chipangano, who fought relegation last season, have suddenly become early pace-setters of the league after two high-scoring wins in their first two games of the season. The coal-miners have so far banged in eight goals in just two matches, a feat that has seen them occupy the log’s apex.
After having opened the league campaign with a 5-1 demolition of Mutare based army side Buffaloes at Colliery Stadium, the Nation Dube-led outfit over the weekend proved that they can still conquer even away from home, when they upset FC Platinum 3-2.
Towering striker, Rodwell Chinyengetere who did not play for the better part of last season, has already made his comeback felt in the Chipangano camp. The forward, who grabbed the first brace of this season in the Buffaloes match, continued to be his side’s torch bearer again at the weekend.
Hwange host Triangle this weekend, with Dube expressing hopes that his side would march past the Eastern Highlands team. “Results from the two matches that we have played show clearly that this season we are indeed a team to look at. We do not want to approach the Triangle match with our heads too high though, but I do not foresee them handing us our first defeat,” said Dube.
Caps United, who collected their first set of points with a victory of How Mine, meet Buffaloes at Gwanzura Stadium, while FC Platinum who are still failing to find a winning formula, travel to Bulawayo for a date with Chicken Inn. Still in the City of Kings, PSL returnees Bantu Rovers welcome reigning league champions Dynamos. Rovers are coming from a 3-1 demolition of Chicken Inn in a Bulawayo derby, while Dynamos are smarting from a 1-0 shock at the hands of newboys ZRP Kariba. Highlanders, who beat Shabanie Mine 4-1 at Barbourfields Stadium for their first win of the season, travel to the Lowveld for a date with unpredictable Chiredzi FC, while Shabanie host Black Rhinos at Maglas Stadium.Post published in: Football
