Trojan Stars out to derail Mushowani
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.
