Hwange hunt for first home win in Battle of Miners against Gem Boys

Story by Mthokozisi Dube,

League returnees Hwange will be gunning for their first home win this season when they square off with Manica Diamonds at the Colliery on Sunday in a clash dubbed the Battle of Miners.

Bragging rights are at stake in the Battle of Miners, pitting Hwange and Manica Diamonds in one of the Super Sunday fixtures.

Of interest, is that the two teams are separated by a point with the Gem Boys occupying seventh position on 16 points, while Chipangano are 9th on 15 points.

Manica Diamonds seem to have lost the momentum of late and will be using their away fixture to try and keep pace with log leaders Ngezi Platinum fully aware that Hwange are yet to win at home this season.

Hwange are however oozing with confidence after last week‘s morale-boosting 2-1 win over Herentals in Harare.

Hwange FC assistant coach Try Ncube told the ZBC News, “I think you can see the mood at the session. The boys are very focused and we just need to collect maximum points. It has been long since we last got maximum points at our favourable ground.”

Chipangano have a clean bill of health, giving the technical enough options ahead of Sunday’s clash with the Gem Boys.

On Saturday, Cranborne Bullets welcome Harare giants CAPS United at the National Sports Stadium, while Sheasham play Herentals at Bata Stadium.

Chicken Inn are at home to struggling Army side, Black Rhinos at Luveve in the other fixture slated for Saturday.

The action continues on Sunday with Greenfuel entertaining defending champions FC Platinum at Gibbo stadium, while Harare giants Dynamos host ZPC Kariba at the National Sports Stadium. 

Bulawayo Chiefs battle Highlanders in a derby expected to produce thrills and spills at Barbourfields Stadium.

Monday’s fixture between Yadah and Ngezi Platinum at the National Sports Stadium concludes Match Day 12 fixtures.
