Buffaloes host Caps United, Triangle welcome WhaWha


CASTLE Lager Premier Soccer League outfits Buffaloes and Triangle will be hoping to utilise home advantage when they host Caps United and Whawha respectively tomorrow.


Buffaloes will welcome the Green Machine at Sakubva Stadium eager to register their second win of the season after their successful 1-0 win against Dongo Sawmills in Rusape last Wednesday.

On the other hand, the financially troubled Caps United was on Thursday held to a nil-all draw by Hwange in the capital.
In an interview with NewsDay Sport yesterday, Buffaloes head coach Joseph Takaringofa said morale was high in their camp after their midweek success.

“We managed to win against Dongo Sawmills and since then, morale has been very high. The players have been impressing me with their work rate especially at training and even in our previous five games,’’ he said.

“The match against Caps United is going to be difficult, but we are confident of collecting maximum points. I am urging football fans to come and support their team in their numbers because we want to move into a better position on the log standings.

Meanwhile, Triangle also have a relatively tough encounter on offer when they host WhaWha at Gibbo Stadium.

WhaWha showed that they were no pushovers after they defeated Dynamos 1-0 in a league match on Thursday at Ascot Stadium in Gweru.

Triangle chairman Lovemore Matikinyidze said they were hoping to continue with their fine start to the season.

“We are not underrating WhaWha, but we are there to maintain our 100% record performance at home,” Matikinyidze said.

“And the other thing is that we are hoping to consolidate our second position on the log standings and the issue of winning the league is something else for us. We are taking each game as it comes.”
