Ngezi Platinum, Rhinos clash

HARARE - Zifa Northern Region Division One League pacesetters Ngezi Platinum’s title credentials will go under the microscope when they host second-placed Black Rhinos at Ngezi Boabab this afternoon.

Clifton “Somalia” Kadurira’s charges lead the log standings 27 points, three ahead of second placed Black Rhinos.

Ngezi, who have re-established themselves as outright favourites for the sole promotion slot are yet to lose a match thus far after 11 rounds of action winning eight times and drawing three.

The platinum miners have become a compact unit and at the beginning of the season they acquired several former Premiership players whom they blended with young players.

Some of the players, who are in their ranks, include veteran former Triangle and Blue Rangers player Daniel Kamunhenga, former Harare City players Nomore John and Edgar Tapera.

Black Rhinos, who are bidding for a quick return to a top flight league, are also yet to test a defeat in 11 matches played so far after recording six wins and five draw.

In other Northern Region potential explosive match to be played today third-placed Herentals face former Premiership side Gunners at National Sports Stadium B Arena.

Going into the match the two sides are separated by one point with Herentals sitting on 18 points while Gunner are on fifth position with 18 points.

Gunners, who were also tipped to win the top-flight ticket at the start of the season, have only won four matches, drawing five and losing two.

Hie Blessings. I just thought of correcting one thing about your reporting. You do not say a team are outright favourites when they are leading by three points. Rhinos is only trailing Ngezi Platinum by 3 points and cannot be counted out at this early stage of the league season.
