The former Premier Soccer League side has lost two out of the two matches they have played so far in the season after losing 1-0 to ZPC Hwange and 3-1 to Black Boots.
Bantu Rovers are under the guidance of former Warriors and Highlanders midfielder Johannes Ngodzo assisted by Chipo Tsodzo. They are currently 14th on the log having scored once against four that they have conceded with Lenience Mpofu.
Casmyn on the other hand have one win and one loss having beaten Mpumalanga 1-0 last weekend with the goal coming from Nyasha Manzunzu.
The Bantu Rovers and Casmyn match will be played at midday with newboys Bulawayo City coached by Philani “Beefy” Ncube facing Trumus at 3pm. Bulawayo City have not lost a match having won one and drawn their last encounter against Makomo of Hwange.
Trumus have drawn twice since the start of the league and are looking for their first victory. They are placed ninth on the log with Bulawayo City on third position.
Fourth placed ZPC Hwange face Technosphere who are 10th on the log and are yet to win a game while the former have not lost.
Ntabazinduna who are on second place on the log and have won both their matches face Makomo at home. Nkosilathi Ncube and James Chivasa scored in Ntabazinduna’s last match against Indlovu Iyanyathela beating them 2-1 with Linton Mathe scoring for the latter.
Makomo are three rungs down with four points from one win and one draw.
Bulawayo Chiefs who lead the standings so far with two wins take on Nust at Luveve on Sunday. In their last match Mkhululi Dube scored a brace when they beat Hwange Under-20 2-0.
Nust are still to get off the mark and could find the going tough against Bulawayo Chiefs who won the league title in 2013 but opted not to play in the top flight instead selling the franchise to Bantu Rovers. Old Nic Mine who are yet to kick the ball this season have a date with Indlovu Iyanyathela at home on Sunday.
