Ak­bay frets over Tri­an­gle clash

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport -

Tri­an­gle coach David Mandig­ora said his charges are ready for Bosso.

“We’re ready to fight. They play sim­i­lar foot­ball to us and we’re ready,” said Mandig­ora.

He said they were hop­ing to bounce back to win­ning ways as they are still smart­ing from a 1-3 loss to Ngezi Plat­inum.

For­mer national team de­fender Guthrie Zhokinyi, striker Ralph Ka­won­dera, 2015 Cas­tle Lager Premier Soc­cer League Soc­cer Star of the Year fi­nal­ist Malvin Gaki and at­tack­ing mid­fielder Lameck Nhamo are ex­pected to lead Tri­an­gle’s charge.

Bosso lost top spot to FC Plat­inum, who beat Chicken Inn 1-0 at White City Sta­dium last Satur­day.

High­landers are sec­ond on the league ta­ble with 30 points; three be­hind FC Plat­inum, and can re­claim top spot should they beat Tri­an­gle.

Tri­an­gle will also be seek­ing to break their three-year jinx against Bosso, as they have never beaten the Bu­l­awayo gi­ants since gain­ing pro­mo­tion four years ago.

They have lost three times to High­landers and drawn the re­main­der.

Tri­an­gle are sixth on the log with 22 points and can move up the lad­der if they sur­prise Bosso.

In an­other en­counter, the sur­vival bat­tle be­tween Tsholot­sho FC and Mutare City Rovers is on at Lu­veve Sta­dium this af­ter­noon.
