LOG leaders Highlanders will be seeking redemption when they travel to Harare for a date against struggling Herentals in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match set for Rufaro Stadium this Wednesday.

Bosso need to be on top of their game as they face a struggling Herentals side that is eager to get their season going after just one victory this campaign.

The log leaders, however have a good recent record against the students after beating them home and away last season.

It will be a sharp contrast as the league’s top scorers Highlanders with 11 goals, face a team with the least number of goals after finding the back of the net on just three occasions.

Their strikers might be goal-shy, but the Herentals defense is still mean as they have conceded less than a goal per match, a record that Highlanders matches.

Undefeated former champions FC Platinum host unpredictable ZPC Kariba at Mandava Stadium, struggling defending champions Ngezi Platinum Stars date equally troubled Yadah at Baobab Stadium, while league returnees TelOne date Bulawayo Chiefs at Bata Stadium.

New boys Bikita Minerals, who have had a decent start to life in the top flight play against Simba Bhora, who have won three of their last four matches. Meanwhile, Hwange will make the short trip to Bulawayo to face Chicken Inn.

Action continues on Thursday with vibrant newbies Chegutu Pirates hosting Dynamos at Baobab Stadium, troubled CAPS United facing Green Fuel at Rufaro Stadium, and the last match featuring Arenel Movers against the rejuvenated Manica Diamonds at Luveve Stadium.
