Now carrying the famous victory that has moved the gold miners up the ladder into the fifth position with 18 points, five below leaders Chicken Inn, this weekend host ZPC Kariba an equally impressive side. Since departure of their last year’s record-breaking coach Saul Chaminuka, the energy side has been exciting and only last week they handed FC Platinum a shocking defeat. The encounter pitting Masomere’s killing machine and Gwenya Rekuchamhembe should therefore be the tie of the league’s Match Day 1.
Elsewhere Caps United will once again be in the spot-light when they take on Tsholotsho FC at White City stadium. The green machine has so far had a turbulent season due to financial constraints in their camp which has seen talented forward Rodreck Mutuma quitting the club. Their coach Mark Harrison has also hinted on leaving the former Cup Kings due to the challenge but a recent meeting between the club’s directors Joe Makuvire and Twine Phiri, who is also the PSL chairman, looks set to open a new chapter at the green half of the capital.
On the other end, Kugona Kunenge kudada’s gaffer Norma Mapeza will also be out in full force to redeem lost pride when his charges welcome Highlanders in Zvishavane. This season Mapeza has been defeated five times and won on the same number of games, drawing once, a feat that has already started flashing red lights for the former Warriors mentor.
