Is Chunga Caps’ messiah?

IT’S three matches without a win so far for Moses Chunga at the helm of Caps United and for that reason, championship-gunning Highlanders would not have been his choice of opponents in the Premier Soccer League tomorrow.

Going by the formbook, Highlanders are not lik

ely to lose against Caps at Rufaro tomorrow — which might bring to four Chunga’s wretched streak.

The former Dynamos star took over the Caps reins earlier this month following a poor streak of results by the defending league champions under Zambian Fordson Kabole.

Already it’s a big question if he will see through the rest of the season at Caps, who won the last two premiership titles under the tutelage of Warriors coach Charles Mhlauri.

Chunga has not won any league honours in his coaching career but is famed for saving teams from relegation.

Caps are just about in the same precarious position as Dynamos were last year, and with history repeating itself with theatrical consistency this year, they could end up flirting with relegation like their rivals did last season.

Chunga masterminded Dynamos’ survival last year, and it remains to be seen if he will succeed with Caps.

Also tomorrow, inform second-placed Motor Action face Mwana Africa at Callies.

While the Mighty Bulls managed a draw away in Hwange last weekend, Highlanders won at home to Monomotapa, thus widening the gap between the two chasing sides to 12 points. 

As such, being talked of in the same breath as Highlanders — as championship contenders — may turn out after all to be the only comfort for Keagan Mumba’s men at the end of the season. However a possible win tomorrow will keep them in the picture for the time being.

PSL fixtures:

Tomorrow: Buymore v Chapungu (Gwanzura), Caps United v Highlanders (Rufaro), Motor Action v Mwana Africa (Callies), Monomotapa v Hwange (Callies).
Sunday: Dynamos v Lancashire Steel (Rufaro), Black Rhinos v Railstars (Gwanzura), Masvingo United v Shooting Stars (Mucheke), Zimbabwe Saints v Shabanie Mine (Barbourfields).
