TOP spot in the Castle Premiership is up for grabs again as the giants Highlanders, Dynamos and Caps United face tough matches in round 14 this weekend.
After ZPC moved into second place on Thursday after beating Hwange 2-0 at the Colliery, the country’s three most successful clubs can lay claim to the top spot this weekend.
Caps United, who last won the league title in 2005 under Charles Mhlauri and started the season rather poorly, have the earliest chance, but a tough one, when they travel to Bulawayo to face gritty Chicken Inn at Barbourfields Stadium.
Chicken Inn picked up four points from their last two matches and now have 20 points from 13 games while Caps are on 23 points, one behind the leaders and this alone provides a lot of confidence for the Green Machine.
And history is on their side as well: in their last six encounters, Caps have won three times, drawn once and lost twice.
They go into Saturday’s without the trusted duo of Ronald Pfumbidzai and Tendai Samanja, who failed late fitness tests, but can still rely on bustling hitman Dominic Chungwa and Leonard Fiyado.
Chicken Inn will welcome back Danny Phiri from trials in South Africa and also have a wealth of experience in Clemence Matawu, Thomas Matawu, Ramson Zhuwawo and George Majika.
