The last league matches were played on October 6.
Cyclone were the first team to hand Inline its first defeat of the season in the first round of the league, winning 2-1 at BG Sports Club in Bulawayo.
Inline coach Shadreck Mlauzi said they were in the running for the championship and would need maximum points from the match.
“We respect the opposition because they got three points from us in the first round, but we are hoping to get a good result this time. Prior to that break we had gained momentum because we had won three consecutive matches, but we are happy that we are resuming the race for the championship,” he said.
Manzungu said they expected a tough match against Inline.
“Inline have a good technical team and players. But we are banking on that we were the first team to beat them this season and that will give us confidence. We have been working on our weaknesses during the break although we would have wanted continuity in the league,” he said.
Inline are third on the log table with 26 points from 12 games, while Cyclone are on position five with 21 points from the same number of games.
