Bulls seek win


Defending champions Motor Action will leave no stone unturned in their quest to maintain their pole position when they take on struggling Kiglon in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match at Gwanzura on Saturday afternoon.

The Mighty Bulls are perched at the summit of the 16-member log table with 25 points from 12 matches after they were held to a goalless draw by visiting Hwange in their last league match on Wednesday.

Kiglon are fourth from the bottom with 13 points from 12 matches.

Mighty Bulls head coach Joey “Mafero” Antipas will be looking forward to assembling his best side to keep the momentum going, hoping to open up the gap between them and second-placed FC Platinum who seem to be breathing hard on them.

The Mighty Bulls have proved to be a hard nut to crack as they have only lost once in 12 matches and their defence has been impressive with their number one shot stopper Marlon Jani conceding only three goals.

In yet another Harare derby, Monomotapa has been presented with a chance to stop rejuvenated Caps United when the two clash at Rufaro on Saturday afternoon.

Caps United head coach Moses “Bambo” Chunga who had been under fire from Caps United fans for a string of poor results must not treat Monomotapa with kid gloves as the team is capable of pulling shockers especially when they play big teams.

Monomotapa handed Highlanders their first defeat of the 2011 soccer season, a sign that Chunga has to be at his best to beat them.

And after that 4-1 drubbing of Masvingo United, Caps United seem to have regained their winning formula.

Top striker Simba Sithole is back in the country after having flown to South Africa to tie up a move to Mamelodi Sundowns.

He has scored 10 goals this season and is wholly responsible for the extending Chunga’s stay at Caps United.

Action will continue in the capital with Dynamos looking forward to maintain their rich vein of form when they host tricky customers Blue Ribbon.

Blue Ribbon is now home to their former defender Brighton Tuwaya who has been a revelation to the club.

Gunners will also be looking forward to regain the form that made them the champions in 2009 when the take on Black Mambas at their home Lafarge.

There seems to be trouble at Mambas, results are not coming and the technical bench, led by John Toto Ncube, might have to answer some tough questions if they lose again this weekend.

Tomorrow, football fans in Bulawayo are set to witness one of the oldest derbies in Bulawayo when Highlanders who have been struggling for the past two matches come face-to-face with Zimbabwe Saints at Barbourfields.

Bosso will be welcoming Gift Lunga and Lawson Nkomo who missed their midweek encounter due to suspensions.

Hwange will welcome “Triple P,” Pure Platinum Play Boys, in Hwange. Both teams have been enjoying a good spell after Hwange drew nil-all with defending champions Mighty Bulls while FC Platinum beat Highlanders 2-0 on Wednesday when former Warriors coach Rahman Gumbo took charge of his first game.

Masvingo United will entertain Chicken Inn in Masvingo while Shabanie Mine will take on Shooting Stars at Maglas.
