Hwange host Black Mambas


Police side Black Mambas travel to the Colliery for a date with inconsistent Hwange on Sunday as they seek to steer safe from the relegation zone in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League.

Warumwa Warumwa, who had not been playing well, appeared to have picked up form and they picked four points before the two-week PSL break that accommodated the Warriors-Liberia match and the BancABC Sup8r Cup final between Highlanders and Motor Action at Barbourfields Stadium last Saturday.

Black Mambas beat Masvingo United 3-1 at Mucheke Stadium on September 3, two days after 12 of their players had just arrived from the Southern African Police Chiefs Co-operation Games in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Young midfielder Abbas Amidu scored a hat-trick when the police side beat Masvingo United.

They were, however, held to a goalless draw by log-anchors Kiglon at Morris Depot on September 7 in a re-arranged fixture.

Coach John “Toto” Ncube will hope his boys will deliver a better performance than the shoddy one they exhibited when they drew 0-0 with relegation-bound Kiglon last Wednesday.

After losing 2-0 to Chicken Inn at Luveve Stadium, Hwange went on to beat Caps United 1-0 at the Colliery on August 21 before they held new boys Blue Ribbon to a goalless draw at Rufaro Stadium a week later.

Sunday is a chance for the Tennant Chilumba-coached coal miners to move up the log-standings when they host Mambas.

Chipangano have been static on position six on the log-table and will be hoping that Chicken Inn lose to reigning champions Motor Action tomorrow for them to move at least one rung up if they beat Warumwa Warumwa.

Chicken Inn travel to Harare for the Mighty Bulls clash while championship contenders and second-placed FC Platinum entertain Caps United at Mandava Stadium.

Masvingo United square off with Shabanie Mine at Mucheke Stadium while another relegation fighter Zimbabwe Saints take on Dynamos in Harare on Sunday.
