PSL Round-up with Brenna Matendere

Newly promoted PSl outfit ZPC Kariba, who have a record six games unbeaten run, will this weekend face a litmus test when they meet on-fire Bulawayo giants Highlanders. The match will be played at Gwanzura Stadium in Harare, which is being used by the energy side as home ground.


The two teams are neck and neck at 12 points on top of the log. They have won the same number of games, (3) and drew in the same number of matches (3). Both teams are yet to taste defeat.

While Bosso is so far the best attacking team with 13 goals, ZPC Kariba have proved to have the best defence – conceding only two goals since beginning of the season. While Bosso’s 4-0 victory against Caps United over the weekend has been adjudged to be the biggest home win, ZPC Kariba’s 5-1 mauling of Triangle FC is the biggest away win seen so far.

The winner of the weekend match will therefore record a clear three-point lead on top of the log.

Elsewhere, champions Dynamos, who have recorded a straight two consecutive defeats, travel to Zvishavane for a date with Shabanie Mine. After the 0-1 loss to Luke Masomere’s Buffaloes over the weekend, indications have been that coach Calisto Pasuwa’s days with the Glamour Boys are now numbered.
