Clash of the uniformed forces

HARARE - Black Rhinos’ fine form at home will come under a strenuous scrutiny when they host fellow uniformed forces side Black Mambas Sunday afternoon at Rimuka stadium.

Four points separate the two teams with the Rhinos sitting on fourth position from the bottom with 22 points while Mambas have got 26 points from 21 games.

Both teams are under pressure to avoid relegation this season.

Last weekend, Black Rhinos lost 2-1 away to Chicken Inn while Mambas also lost to the army side Buffaloes 1-0.

However, Rimuka Stadium has proved to be Black Rhinos’ secret weapon in their fight against relegation since their relocation to Kadoma.

The One Commando-based soldiers are yet to lose or concede a goal since moving to their adopted home.

Their first match at Rimuka ended in a goalless draw with Tripple B. In their second game atthe venue, Rhinos stunned FC Platinum with a 2-0 victory as Lot Chiwunga and an own goal from Thabani Kamusoko grounded the visitors.

Chauya Chipembere were able restrict defending champions Dynamos to a 0-0draw and then beat Shabanie Mine 2-0 in their last home game.

But while Rhinos have been collecting points at home, the Premiership returnees are finding it tough on the road.
