McInn eye TM Eagles scalp


Third-placed McInn Football Club are looking at mounting pressure on leaders Hardbody on the Zifa Central Region Division One Football League log standing, when they travel to Kwekwe Sunday, to play TM Eagles at Mbizo Stadium.

While they have a chance of dislodging Chapungu from second place, deposing leaders Hardbody this weekend could be a far-fetched idea for McInn as the busmen are four points clear at the top.

McInn who are yet to lose a match this term have managed 11 points in five matches, the same as Chapungu who are inactive this weekend.

Riding on the back of a scintillating run which saw them pumping in 21 goals in three matches, Chapungu became complacent and were held to a goalless draw away at Chrome Stars on Easter Monday.

Equally eyeing second-spot slot are fourth-placed Tripple B who also share the same number of points as the airmen and McInn. The Luke Petros-Jukulile-coached side have what looks like a very easy task of home date with second-from-last and pointless Rutendo on Sunday.

Hardbody will also be aiming to consolidate their lead when they visit Forbes and Thompson on Sunday.

With the golden boot contest now between Hardbody and Chapungu forwards who are sharing five goals apiece, the former’s star striker Callisto Maheya is targeting to overtake the latter’s potent talisman Brighton Mugoni.

Rock-bottom Blanket Mine who are yet to show signs of vacating the basement, welcome former Premiership outfit Lancashire Steel at Blanket Mine Stadium Sunday, while FC Glow Petroleum will be crossing swords with Tongogara at Torwood Stadium.

After stopping Chapungu’s terrific run of form, Chrome Stars could be boasting enough motivation to collect maximum points in their Kwekwe derby confrontation with Silo United at Chrome Stadium on Sunday.
