Cha­pungu have other plans

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Love­more Zi­gara in Gweru

CHA­PUNGU have de­clared they will give as much as they would take from cham­pi­onship chas­ing High­landers when they clash in a Cas­tle Lager premiership match at As­cot Sta­dium this af­ter­noon.

High­landers would want to main­tain pres­sure on log lead­ers FC Plat­inum.

How­ever, Cha­pungu have other plans and have said they would want to de­rail Bosso’s cham­pi­onship charge.

Hos­til­i­ties be­gan on Wed­nes­day af­ter some fans from their Gweru chap­ter con­trib­uted money to book As­cot Sta­dium for High­landers to have their training ses­sion yes­ter­day.

How­ever, the move was de­scribed as “un­pro­fes­sional” and in to­tal dis­re­gard of fair play by Cha­pungu vice chair­man Ack­roid Moyo who took the is­sue with Gweru City Coun­cil.

Cha­pungu gaffer John Nyikadzino whose side will play all the three ti­tle chas­ing teams at the same venue said he is not do­ing any favours to any­one.

“For us we do not have any busi­ness with the league ti­tle but we are wor­ried about our own ob­jec­tives and tar­gets which we have set as a club, which is to fin­ish in the top eight. To achieve that ob­jec­tive we have to win our re­main­ing five games start­ing with the High­landers game,” he said.

Nyikadzino will be buoyed by the fact that Bosso have never beaten Cha­pungu at As­cot since their re­turn to the topflight league two sea­sons ago. High­landers lost 1-0 to Cha­pungu dur­ing the 2014 sea­son and needed a late penalty to share the spoils last sea­son. — @lavuzi­gara1
