Tro­jan Stars out to de­rail Mushowani

The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Takudzwa Chit­siga Sports Re­porter

TRO­JAN Stars coach Ik­abort Masocha has de­clared war on Ruya­muro Ser­vice Sta­tions North­ern Re­gion Divi­sion One League log lead­ers Mushowani Stars and wants to de­rail their ti­tle march at Tro­jan to­mor­row af­ter­noon.

Mushowani Stars are look­ing for­ward to capping a fine sea­son and seal pro­mo­tion into the Premier Soc­cer League.

The Madziwa out­fit are four points away from their date with des­tiny and have three games to achieve that feat.

Tro­jan could, how­ever, de­lay the pop­ping of the champagne bot­tles.

Al­though Masocha knows his side will be the un­der­dogs, he has vowed to give their Mashona­land Cen­tral neigh­bours a good run.

“We have sur­vived rel­e­ga­tion of course, but that is not a ticket for us not to play to the best of our abil­ity.

“We need to win and fin­ish the sea­son strongly, so they should ex­pect a tough en­counter.

“We have been work­ing very hard ahead of the match and the boys are rar­ing to go and they also need to please our home sup­port­ers,” said Masocha.

The pro­mo­tion and sur­vival bat­tle gets tougher this af­ter­noon in all the three provinces as sev­eral teams fight for dif­fer­ent causes at var­i­ous venues.

ZRP FC will be hav­ing an away trip to Manyame Air­base to face Blue Swal­lows who are in the red zone.

In an­other rel­e­ga­tion fight, DZ Evan­gel will be ex­pected to take ad­van­tage of al­ready relegated Chin­hoyi Stars and win their away trip.

But DZ Evan­gel will also be keeping one ear open to de­vel­op­ments else­where and hop­ing that Al­bu­raak and Chegutu Pi­rates lose their games against Beta XI and Ngezi Plat­inum U-19 re­spec­tively.
