Bulawayo comes alive

BULAWAYO - The City of Kings and Queens comes alive this weekend as two of the most popular soccer teams in the premier soccer league Highlanders and Dynamos start their campaigns of the season in the City

The premier soccer league will see its first matches of the 2018 season being played today.

In Bulawayo the league will see Chicken Inn take on Dynamos at Barboufields while across town at Luveve Stadium Bulawayo City will play host to Chapungu.

Tommorow, the youthful Highlanders team will be hosting army side Black Rhinos at Barbourfields Stadium.

As the league comes to life with the countries’ soccer giants all in Bulawayo, soccer fans are in for a big treat and it’s quite an honour for Bulawayo to host Highlanders and Dynamos on the same weekend, same venue on two separate days.

Dynamos will be looking forward to start their campaign on a high note.

They will try to win to make their intentions known after they lost the league title to FC Platinum on the last day of the season last season.

However, they are facing a big task against the Gamecocks who have brought in Joey Antipas to try and steady the ship after he won the 2015 championship for them

Across town at Luveve Stadium, Bulawayo City will be taking on Chapungu and the encounter looks to be an exciting one.

City, who survived relegation on the last day last season have brought in former Tsholotsho coach Darlington Dodo to lead the technical department.

Dodo will, however, face a difficult task against the Tendai Chikuni-coached Chapungu who have always been difficult customers.

For Highlanders, it’s time to test how well-oiled is the new-look Madinda Ndlovu machinery which is mainly made of youngsters.

They are facing a fairly experienced Black Rhinos who are more physical and Ndlovu’s lads will have to stick to their passing game to try and outclass the army side.

Highlanders need nothing short of a victory to try and bring confidence among their success-starved fans.

Bosso last lifted the league title way back in 2006 and since then it has always been so near yet so far and Ndlovu is expected to bring back the glory days at Bosso.
