How Mine, who have managed four straight victories to reach 13 points, host FC Platinum, after which Bulawayo City will clash with Black Rhinos.
On Sunday it’s the big one as Highlanders take on Dynamos at Emagumeni with all the three matches set to be beamed live on SuperSport 9.
Norman Mapeza’s FC Platinum beat Hwange at Maglas Stadium on Sunday and now have 12 points, just one behind How Mine, Highlanders and Ngezi Platinum Stars.
Bulawayo City lost their third match of the season to ZPC Kariba on Saturday and will be out to regain their form against league returnees Black Rhinos, who have only lost once in six matches.
SuperSport were supposed to start screening games at the weekend, but were forced to cancel following the postponement of the Big Harare Derby pitting Dynamos and Caps United due to the unavailability of the National Sports Stadium, which was hosting Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s Christ Embassy crusade.
Caps United’s match against Bantu Rovers has been postponed as the champions travel to Egypt for a date against Zamalek in a Caf Champions League mini league phase Group B match to be played on Friday night.
Saturday: How Mine v FC Platinum (1pm), Bulawayo City v Black Rhinos (3pm Barbourfields SS9), ZPC Kariba v Tsholotsho (Nyamhunga), Yadah FC v Chicken Inn (National Sports Stadium)
Sunday: Hwange v Triangle (Colliery), Shabanie v Chapungu (Maglas), Harare City v Ngezi Platinum (Morris Depot), Highlanders v Dynamos (Barbourfields SS9), Caps United v Bantu Rovers (postponed)
