Staff Writer

SHABANIE host former champions Highlanders on Sunday in a top-of-the-table clash as the premiership roars back to life after a two-week breather.



ONT face=”Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif”>A draw at Maglas Stadium would be good news for runaway leaders Caps United, who are tipped to collect maximum points from relegation-destined Zimbabwe Saints at Barbourfields.


In Harare Dynamos host Masvingo at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday.


With a 10-point lead at the pinnacle of the log, Caps United will be in an uncompromising mood as their championship quest enters the home stretch and hapless Saints could be hammered by a huge margin.


Eight matches will be left after this weekend’s programme before Makepekepe rise to the podium to end an eight-year wait for the championship.


Warriors players Cephas Chimedza, Leonard Tsipa, Brian Badza and captain David Sengu will be expected by the Makepekepe followers to lead the onslaught.


After suffering a humiliating 0-3 loss to Caps a fortnight ago, Shabanie are out to vent their anger on Highlanders – without any guarantee however for a stroll in the park.


Albert Mbano and Patrick Mandizha are once again expected to lead the team that may already be out of the championship race.
