Tricky fixtures for DeMbare, Rhinos

Staff Writer

TWO premiership coaches Luke Masomere of Dynamos and Keegan Mumba of Black Rhinos face daunting tasks at the weekend as they lead their charges in tricky fixtures.





Masomere’s DeMbare clash with their bogey side Sporting Lions at Gwanzura Stadium tomorrow knowing too well that any slip-up after Wednesday’s 4-2 thumping by Zimbabwe Saints would mark the beginning of his downfall at the popular Harare giants.



The former AmaZulu mentor has to come up with a favourable result to extend his stay at the popular Harare giants.


Last season then Dynamos coach Elvis Chiweshe was shown the door after only two matches in charge.


Under the guidance of Chiweshe Dynamos lost 0-2 against pharmaceutical side Caps United and drew with AmaZulu.


Francis Chandida is once again expected to lead the Dynamos attack.

Sporting Lions too are on a mission to please their fans after losing their first match against Highlanders on Saturday.


The Thomas Mapfumo-sponsored side which suffered player exodus in the off season has always played well against DeMbare.


Mumba, who defected to Rhinos in the off season leads his charges against Highlanders at Rufaro on Sunday.


The Zambian-born coach watched helplessly last Sunday at the National Sports Stadium as Caps demolished Rhinos.


History favours Mumba as he had on numerous occasions plotted the downfall of Bosso.


As Dynamos coach Mumba DeMbare thumped Bosso on three occasions last season.


On Sunday Zimbabwe Saints clashes with Railstars at Barbourfields in a Bulawayo derby while Moses Chunga-coached Shabanie hosts AmaZulu at Maglas.
