CAPS hope for change of fortune

The Green Machine, the club most football fans thought was the strongest this season, has been finding the going tough in their first two league matches where they had to play a goalless draw in Shabanie before falling 2-0 to minnows Chicken Inn at home.

The Mighty Bulls had a busy schedule as they were playing in the Confederation Cup where they were booted out by South Africa’s Black Leopards in the preliminary round.

Bulls also took part in the Bob 88 competition before taking part in the NetONe Charity Shield in which they lost to DeMbare in the final. The Mighty Bulls have played two league matches forcing a goalless draw against newcomers Harare City before beating Gunners with a solitary Norman Maroto strike.
In Bulawayo, first week log leaders Highlanders were not active in week two after their opponents FC Platinum travelled to Sudan. They will be hoping to continue with their fine run as they host newcomers Hardbody at Barbourfields.

Bosso recorded the highest score line in their opening league match when they beat Blue Rangers 4-0 in Bulawayo with new boy Milton Ncube grabbing a hat-trick.

Hardbody will be looking forward to registering their first win after they lost to DeMbare in their first league match in Harare.

In Hwange, Chipangano will be on a revenge mission when they welcome FC Platinum at the Colliery. FC Platinum dumped Chipangano out of the Uhuru Trophy this week.

The encounter will be classic as both clubs are still smarting from exits from their respective African Safari categories. Platinum were dumped out of the CAF Champions League while Hwange was booted out of the CAF Confederation Cup, both by Sudanese teams.
Shabanie, the Chinda Boys will welcome Blue Ribbon Rangers at Maglas Stadium in Zvishavane.
