Harare City said they would not be under any pressure when they play what promises to be the biggest and probably most important game of their four-year existence.
The Zifa Northern Region Division One Soccer league log leaders play struggling Eiffel Flats at Dzivarasekwa Stadium tomorrow, where a win will guarantee them top-flight football next season.
The City Fathers lead the log table with 48 points, one ahead of DStv Rangers who have a tricky tie against BEST Academy at Old Hararians Sports Club on the same day.
Black Rhinos and Mwana Africa are tied on third position with 46 points and still have a realistic chance of winning promotion, although they will have to rely heavily on results elsewhere.
Fifth-placed La Liga on 45 points were yesterday set to appeal the executive decision to award Rhinos three points on their abandoned match earlier this month. Club chief administrator James Chitsa was bullish ahead of the do-or-die match.
“It’s a massive match for us because a win will guarantee us Premier football next season. But we are not under pressure at all, not even.
We have played bigger matches before and I don’t think the players will be overawed by this one. The match will be like any other we have played during the season. We will be looking for maximum points,” said Chitsa.
