TRIANGLE will be hoping to maintain their Castle Lager Premiership top spot when they face Flame Lily at Larfarge Stadium in Harare on Saturday.
Kelvin Kaindu’s men lead the standings on better goal difference from defending champions Dynamos with 13 points each. Triangle are unbeaten this season with four wins and one draw while Lily lie deep down in 15th place with three losses and two draws.
Speaking to New Zimbabwe on Thursday, Kaindu said each match was a new game.
“We take each game as it comes and I always tell my guys to keep it cool. We are playing well, scoring goals and we hope to continue. We don’t know much about Flame Lily so we will give them the respect they deserve since they are also in the PSL like us,” he said.
Lily are under Nesbert Saruchera.
Dynamos face Harare City at Rufaro on Saturday afternoon, putting their five match unbeaten run under scrutiny against a side that is slowly beginning to find its feet in the league.
City came from a goal down against FC Platinum on Wednesday to win 2-1 to record their second win of the season and move to sixth place with eight points.
In other matches, Chicken Inn and How Mine clash in the Bulawayo Derby at Luveve while FC Platinum make the short trip to the Midlands capital Gweru to winless Hwahwa.
Platinum are in a spot of bother having lost their third match of the season after going down 2-1 to Harare City on Wednesday and are in desperate need of a win. One win, one draw and three losses is simply not good enough for Norman Mapeza’s men and the fans expressed their disgruntlement after the Wednesday loss.
On Sunday, Caps United, facing possible collapse after coach Mark Harrison raised alarm over the club’s state of affairs, host ZPC Kariba at the National Sports Stadium.
Saddled with debts of over $2 million, club owner Twine Phiri has said he is ready to walk away if he finds a buyer or partners.
Harare businessman Farai Jere, who is owed the $2 million and holds 40 percent of the Caps shares, has largely stayed away from the club after a botched attempt to bring in Sean Connor ended with the club almost being relegated three years ago.
Jere has the money, and is said to be angling for 100 percent ownership should Phiri set sail.
At Vhengere Stadium, under pressure Highlanders take on Dongo Sawmills hoping to put their campaign back on track after the 1-0 home loss to Chapungu in their last outing two weeks ago.Advertisement
