Spread This News

ZPC Kariba veteran striker Limited Chikafa has expressed confidence they can beat Dynamos and go on to lift their maiden championship when they host Dynamos in a top of the table clash at the National Sports Stadium this weekend.
The Saul Chaminuka-coached side has surprised all and sundry with their display in their maiden season which has seen them fighting for the championship with Dynamos with just two matches left before the season ends.
ZPC Kariba are in second place with 53 points, one behind log leaders Dynamos with just two matches left before the end of the term.
Victory over the defending champions could secure them the ultimate prize of domestic football provided they beat Caps United in their last match of the season.
And Chikafa, a veteran of many battles and scorer of a double in their 3-2 defeat of Harare City, believes they can go to the winners’ podium.
“The match against Dynamos is very crucial to us at this stage of the title race,” said Chaminuka on Monday.
“If we win this one, we know we have won the championship. We are looking forward to this match. We have been playing very well since the start of the season.
“We had not been thinking we would be fighting for the championship but now we are in the mood to win it. We had a great season and we are not feeling any pressure.”
Dynamos drew 1-1 against Chapungu at Rufaro before settling for a 0-0 draw against relegated Bantu Rovers on Sunday.
Following the draw the champions however, bounced back to the top of the league table after ZPC Kariba had shot to the summit of the table 24 hours earlier following a 3-2 win over Harare City.
Dynamos will wind up their campaign with a home tie against How Mine while ZPC Kariba will face off Caps United in their last match of the campaign.
