Hardbody in tricky tie against Triple B


Hardbody face a stern test when they embark on a long journey to Beitbridge to take on newly promoted side Triple B in a Zifa Central Region Division One football match slated for Dulibadzimu Stadium on Sunday.

After posting a convincing 4-0 season-opener routing of Silo United last week, Tavaka Gumbo’s men will be under pressure to reproduce the scintillating form at a tricky Triple B side which also got off to a bright start by recording a 2-1 away win over Lancashire Steel last weekend.

On Saturday , Chapungu travels to Kwekwe for a date with newboys TM Eagles at Mbizo Stadium with the aim of recovering from a near false start which saw them being restricted to a nil-all home draw by irksome McInn.

After an unfamiliar start which saw them being held to a one-all stalemate, ZimAlloys who are spurred by a fat pocket, have a task to live up to their rich status when they engage Rutendo Stars at Wilson Fields.

Ziscosteel welcome Gweru Pirates at Torwood Stadium with the two sides being wounded after suffering losses in their respective matches last weekend.

Stubborn McInn who are buoyed by condemning Chapungu to a share of the spoils last weekend, will be up against equally jaunty Shurugwi United at Pelandaba Stadium on Saturday.

On Sunday, Mbizo Stadium will be battle ground for the Silo United-Tongogara showdown while Forbes and Thompson will square up with Blanket Mine at Forbes Stadium.

FC Glow Petroleum will be looking to continue with their good start to the season when they meet Chrome Stars at Torwood Stadium.
