Akbay frets over Triangle clash
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.
