CAPS United coach Mark Harrison is wary of How Mine, describing them as “very experienced and more direct” ahead of the two sides' Castle Lager Premiership tie at Luveve Stadium on Thursday.

Harrison, whose team has collected six points in their last two matches against Whawha and FC Platinum, said the trip to How Mine will be a very difficult one.

“How Mine will be more difficult than FC Platinum. They are a more experienced side. They are more direct than FC Platinum.

“They offer a different style of play. I think from the games we have played so far How Mine will be difficult.

“FC Platinum play a passing game, building from the back but How Mine love to be more direct,” said Harrison adding he had no injury worries as he makes the trip to Bulawayo.

United are coming into the game from a morale boosting 1-0 win over the youthful FC Platinum at the weekend.

Fullback Ronald Pfumbidzai scored the only goal that counted for the Green Machine to collect full points, having started off with a victory over premiership new-boys Whawha in the opening game of the season.

The Green Machine will now be seeking to go into the Harare derby against rivals Dynamos with their confidence high; and that has to start with a victory over How Mine.

However, the gold miners who triumphed 2-1 over Premiership Dongo Sawmill at Vengere Stadium on Sunday, will also be seeking to improve their form after a sluggish start to the season which saw them stuttering to a 0-0 draw against Chapungu in their opening match of the season.

The presence of last term’s two joint top goal scorers in former Highlanders forward Charles Sibanda and Kuda Musharu could not inspire them to glory this season.

Plotting to stop Caps United's perfect start to the new season ... Luke Masomere

Their recent defeat of debutantes Dongo Saw Mill last Sunday was something of a statement by the expensively assembled Luke Masomere squad which had been one of the favourites to lift the championship.

Veteran winger Benjamin Marere rescued Masomere’s men with a headed goal after coming on as a second half substitute for Heritein Masuku after Wonder Sithole’s early strike had been cancelled by Kelvin Katandika.


Meanwhile, Highlanders will play their league match against army side Buffaloes at Vhengere Stadium on Sunday.

Initially, the PSL had announced that the match would be played either at Sakubva or Vhengere.
