ZIMBABWE soccer fans, still reeling from the painful elimination from the 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers by lowly Tanzania on Sunday, will find solace this weekend with the return of the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League (PSL) action.

The PSL had taken a one-week international break to give way to the Warriors match and return with Match Day 10 programme.

The Warriors had suffered a 1-0 defeat in the first leg in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and went into the make or break second leg at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday seeking to overturn that deficit to advance to the next round.

However, a surprise 2-2 draw saw the Warriors exiting at the preliminary stage of the qualifiers- sending the nation into a deep mourning as Zimbabwe will now have to wait for another two years to compete at this level.

But with the return of the Premiership this week, they will have something to console them ahead of the start of the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil on June 12.

Draw specialists ZPC Kariba, still unbeaten in the league campaign, visit Bantu Rovers on Friday, live on Supersport, seeking to gain maximum points. They are on fifth position on the league table with 15 points having won just three and drawn six.

Inconsistent Harare giants Caps United placed seventh on the league table with 14 points make the trip to Ascot Stadium in Gweru hoping for another victory having edge Bantu Rovers 1-0 in their previous match.

Champions Dynamos, who edged Moses Chunga’s Chiredzi FC 1-0 in their previous match, host Biggie Zuze’s Triangle at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.

Kalisto Pasuwa’s men are in unfamiliar fourth position on the log with 16 points from nine matches having won five, drawn one and lost three. They will now have to be consistent if they are to rescue their campaign.

Triangle are fourth from the bottom with just eight points from nine matches. They have won two, drawn two and lost five.

The game of the week will feature log leaders Highlanders against unpredictable FC Platinum at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday. The match will be live on Supersport.

Bosso have 19 points, having won five and drawn four and will be seeking to consolidate their lead.

Second-placed Hwange who have 18 points having won five drawn three and lost one visit Chishamiso Stadium in Chiredzi for a date with bottom side Chiredzi FC.
Third placed How Mine, unbeaten in their last seven matches, host Harare City at Luveve Stadium on Saturday in a match that will be televised by Supersport.

Friday: Bantu Rovers V ZPC Kariba (Luveve, SS9)

    • but saying ” lets hope our son will not be cheated @ Bosso ” might not be an analyisis but it also shows how much hatred you have for Highlanders. Are they cheating? I don’t think so brother. That team is also inconsistent but if you find them on they can play good football
