Mabvuku United, Morelove In League Battle

Sports Reporter

It will be a nail biting edge of your seat encounter come Monday the 17th of July as Harare province soccer league 2B title contenders Mabvuku United clash against Morelove who are also relishing their appetite for the title.

Mabvuku United, who were 2 points above second placed Morelove after week 13 round of fixtures will be looking to extend their lead going into this much awaited encounter.

Mabvuku United head coach Tonderai Bonde said the game against Morelove will be a tight contest and will replicate the memorable cup game between these two sides.

“It’s going to be a tight match since it’s a derby. Last time we played Morelove it was a cup game and everyone witnessed the rivalry and massive tension. Though we have slumped in form in the past 2 games we have made our homework and this is our opportunity to bounce back.”

Morelove, who lost to Komani this past Friday will be looking to bounce back to winning ways as the competition on top gets stiffer and stiffer.

Bonde added the loss by Morelove is a head call for the Mabvuku based side to pull up their socks and tighten their boots since they are looking for nothing but a win.

“Morelove are a team to beat now because they had their form. Even though they lost their match against Komani this past Friday its not going to be a push over against them. I know they will be trying to bounce back, they will try to win against us but we need to be cautious in our approach. We have prepared well, we have done our homework tactically.”

The former Dendairy Fc head coach cited injury worries on Wesley Chimbo who picked up a knock against Dynamos.

“On injuries we talking of Wesley Chimbo who picked up a knock in the match against Dynamos on Wednesday morning. We are going to asses him on Sunday but I think it’s a light one.”

As Morelove and Mabvuku United tussle for 3 points other teams enjoying top five positions will be looking to cover the widening gap.

Teams making up the top five spots include Inno Cosmos, formerly coached by Kwekwe based head coach Anorld Dangarembizi, fast food amalgamate Simbisa, and Irvines Academy.

Kilsurde and Ali Sundowns lurk in the bottom part of top ten though they still have a huge chance to prove they are also worthy of bagging the ultimate gong.

Its not all roses and chocolates for MBCA, Glenview Academy, Komani, Harmony and Epworth Academy.

These four teams make up the tail end of the league campaign so far.

Meanwhile Zimbabwe is in for a much awaited comeback on the international football scene.

After recent deliberation between FIFA delegation and the local football fraternity Zimbabwe ban was lifted, a feat that has seen the Warriors placed in a tricky World Cup qualifier group including the giants of Western Africa Nigeria, South Africa, Benin, Rwanda and Lesotho.
