HIGH-flying Harare giants Caps United are in for big tests in the coming fortnight against Chicken Inn and Dynamos who they face on the trot in their next two Castle Lager Premier Soccer League assignments.
The 2016 champions are currently enjoying a rich vein of form, but a herculean task stands ahead of them in the next fortnight.
After passing the FC Platinum hurdle with a point in their bag, they face Chicken Inn on Week 6, with hopes of maintaining their form.
Chicken Inn have been decent, with their latest fixture ending in a 2-2 draw with Bulawayo Chiefs.
But their biggest challenge in the next five fixtures will be against Dynamos who they meet on Week 7 at home.
The clash between the two rivals has always produced fireworks.
And with Dynamos in high spirits, their meeting is sure to be one of the best offerings this season.
DeMbare's match against Highlanders that was supposed to be played on Saturday was shelved as the two collide in the Independence Trophy today.

Caps United coach Llyod Chitembwe is excited by his team’s current trajectory as they lead with 11 points out of a possible 15.
He was pleased with the performance against FC Platinum on Sunday even though they conceded late, having taken a first half lead.
“It was a good game, and I’m extremely happy with the way both teams played. It’s a point that we take with honour because we were playing the reigning champions.
“We created chances and those are some of the positives. There is a lot that we can look forward to," Chitembwe said after the FC Platinum match.
After Dynamos, the Chitembwe-coached side has a relatively easy but taxing fixture schedule.
They face Yadah, Hwange, Sheasham, Simba Bhora in that order before hosting Highlanders on Week 13.
They will travel for a date with Bulawayo Chiefs and Green Fuel FC in Week 14 and 15, respectively.
