PSL PREVIEW: Troubled CAPS United seek redemption against Chicken Inn

PSL PREVIEW: Troubled CAPS United seek redemption against Chicken Inn

By Sports Reporter

HARARE giants CAPS United will be thrust under the spotlight this weekend when they take on Bulawayo side Chicken Inn on Sunday.

United are on an unhappy trajectory since the resumption of football in July, winning just once in nine games.

The Harare side have been rocked by player disgruntlement over salaries they are owed by owner and legislator Farai Jere.

Makepekepe will travel to Gweru, smarting from defeat to defending champions FC Platinum in Zvishavane last weekend which was their eighth loss of the season.

Lloyd Chitembwe’s side are a pale shadow of their former selves after enjoying a stellar first half of the season which them top spot on the league.

Meanwhile, fellow Harare giants Dynamos, who have contrasting fortunes to CAPS United will once again invade Barbourfields stadium for a date against bogey side Bulawayo Chiefs.

DeMbare will play in Bulawayo five days after their ill-fated match against Highlanders was abandoned in the 37th minute when fans invaded the pitch in protest over a refereeing decision.

Dynamos lost to Bulawayo Chiefs in the reverse fixture, their first defeat and coach Emmanuel Jalai is cognisant of the task ahead of them.

“First thing is we have to apply ourselves,” he said.

“Bulawayo Chiefs is not a pushover. They came here and we lost so we have to apply ourselves in a positive attitude and we see how it goes.”

Elsehere in Mhondoro, Ngezi Platinum Stars are out to consolidate their spot on top of the league when they clash against Green Fuel.

Ngezi Platinum lead Highlanders by a point and are looking to build on this as they aim to clinch their first title in the top flight league.
