Chidzambwa seeks response

HARARE - ZPC Kariba host Harare City this afternoon at Nyamhunga Stadium hoping to end a three-game winless streak which threatens to derail a campaign which had promised so much.

Following a perfect start to the season the Zimbabwe Power-utility Company side had endured a difficult moment recently picking one point out of a possible nine.

That poor run has seen ZPC Kariba drop to fifth place from second on the log table with 22 points from 13 matches and now trail log leaders FC Platinum by five points.

ZPC coach Sunday Chidzambwa admitted his side not enjoying any recent good form but believes they will turn the corner.

“We just have to pick ourselves up and get going. There will still be more twists and turns in this championship,” Chidzambwa told the Daily News yesterday.

“In football sometimes you go through a bad spell and this is what is exactly happening to us at the moment. But we will do our best in our match against City and get a good momentum by winning the three points.”|

Chidzambwa acknowledges while they are desperate for maximum points, Harare City will not make it easy for them.

“They are a good team, they play good football especially here at home it is never easy and ZPC Kariba knows that better than other teams. Remember they beat us twice last year in the Cup and league game. They have also beaten us this year.

“So it’s not going to be an easy match. We are expecting a really tough match.”

On the other hand, Harare City have been inconsistent thus far. After replacing Taurai Mangwiro as the Sunshine Boys coach Moses Chunga had started well winning his opening two matches before bought down to earth by charging Dynamos.

He went on to lose to lowly Border Strikers before weekend’s draw against How Mine. Chunga knows another defeat would paint a gloom future for him especially given he was tasked to lead the team to a top three finish.

Chunga is likely to be without defender Blessing Moyo, who was yesterday reportedly to have sealed a move to South Africa’s Absa Premiership side Maritzburg United.
