Log leaders Dynamos – three points clear of their rivals with 56 points from 27 matches – have a seemingly difficult trip to ZPC Kariba.

With closest challengers Ngezi Platinum and FC Platinum on 53 points each, Dynamos will be looking for a win to consolidate their lead at the top.

They welcome the pair of Carlos Rusere and vice-captain Obey Mwerahari, who have missed several games because of injury.
Ngezi Platinum make the trip to Barbourfields for a date with Bulawayo City on Saturday, while FC Platinum travel to face Highlanders at the same venue on Sunday.

Chicken Inn, who are in fourth place with 51 points, have a tricky trip to Maglas – a stadium Shabanie Mine have turned into a virtual fortress.

Caps United might no longer have interest in the championship, but certainly they want a respectable finish and fourth place would be acceptable to their fans.

They host Triangle at the National Sports Stadium, hoping to claw up the ladder.

Only seven matches are left before the curtain comes down on the football calendar this season.


Friday: Shabanie v Chicken Inn (Maglas,SS)

Saturday: Bulawayo City v Ngezi (BF), Tsholotsho v Chapungu (Dulibadzimu), ZPC Kariba v Dynamos (Nyamhunga), Yadah FC v Black Rhinos (SS), Harare City v Bantu Rovers (Rufaro), How Mine v Hwange (Luveve), Caps United v Triangle (NSS), Highlanders FC v FC Platinum (BF).
