Hwange host Kiglon


Hwange Football Club, aiming to end the season with a top-four finish, will be back home when they entertain troubled Kiglon in a Castle Lager Premiership tie at the Colliery today.

Chipangano have mounted a serious challenge on the championship and are currently on position four on the log table with 44 points from 27 matches.

Two weeks ago, Hwange drew 0-0 with Dynamos at the Colliery. The match pitting the Glamour Boys and Motor Action in Harare today at Rufaro Stadium has a bearing on the coal miners if they beat Kiglon.

If Dynamos, who are fighting for the championship, beat the Mighty Bulls (45 points) in Harare and Chipangano win at the Colliery, they leap to position three.

Chipangano would then be chasing Dynamos and log leaders FC Platinum, who meet in the championship decisive tie at Mandava Stadium on Sunday.

Hwange has been on a purple patch in the past few weeks and before the goalless draw with DeMbare at the Colliery, they beat Monomotapa 1-0 at Rufaro Stadium, through a goal by veteran Gilbert Zulu.

They beat Shabanie Mine 2-1 at the Colliery after having dismissed Shooting Stars 1-0 away before beating Black Mambas by the same score-line at the Colliery.

Hwange’s coach Tennant Chilumba has been adamant the coal miners would be ending the season among the top four.

Players to watch in the Hwange line-up are Zambian import Aaron Katebe, young Fransisco Zvikumbaire, Kennedy Kashema and Malvern Longwe.

Their impressive goalkeeper Timothy Sibanda is likely to be between the goal posts this afternoon.
Kiglon are fighting relegation tooth and nail and it is likely not to be a stroll in the park for Chipangano, even though playing at home.

Monomotapa added to Kiglon relegation woes a fortnight ago beating them 1-0. Coach Maxwell Jongwe has in his camp Lawrence Mwashita, Brighton Pamirwa and Nelson Mazivisa, who could carry the day for them at the Colliery this afternoon.

Chicken Inn’s Adam Ndlovu is on his first assignment in charge as his team meets spirited Gunners at Lafarge.

All has not been rosy for the Drumstick Special Boys, and two weeks ago lost to Black Mambas 2-1 at home after another loss to Caps United with the same score-line.

Chicken Inn are now perched on position eight on the log table after a good start on their maiden season in the Premiership.Highlanders, who picked up maximum points beating Gunners at Barbourfields Stadium after an eight-match drought, seek to continue from where they left off today when they meet Masvingo United at Mucheke Stadium.

Bosso are without striker Graham Ncube, sent for an early shower after scoring for the Bulawayo football giants in the 2-1 win over Gunners.

Log-anchors Zimbabwe Saints could be headed for a showdown when they meet fired up Black Mambas at White City Stadium this afternoon.

Chikwata lost out on the Mbada Diamonds Cup when they fell to Motor Action 2-0 in the semi-finals at Sakubva Stadium, Mutare on Sunday.

A defeat today will mark their return to Division One after a one-year flirtation in top-flight football.

They acquired Eagles’ franchise at the beginning of the season.
