SHABANIE Mine coach John Phiri has said they will offer no special treatment for Highlanders whom they visit at Barbourfields this weekend.

The Zvishavane side got their 2014 PSL campaign off to a flying start by beating Triangle 3-1 at home while Highlanders were held to a 0-0 draw by Chapungu.

Highlanders’ results mounted more pressure on them as they are winless in five straight games including the Bob90 Super Cup final and Independence Trophy semifinal.

The pressure could make life difficult for Phiri and his men.

“It does not matter they could be struggling but it is a fact that Highlanders are a giant in Zimbabwean football and we respect that. But we will just treat them like any other side we will play this season.

“We are preparing for them in the same manner we would gear up for all teams. Playing them will motivate my boys and it is a stage for them to shine,” Phiri said.

Shabanie who quietly went about their business during preseason stunned Triangle as Phiri unleashed largely new-look squad.

Only three players, Victor Twaliki, captain Rodney Mware and Smart Muchabaiwa, who were part of the few men left behind by former coach Luke Masomere started the match.

The rest were new arrivals led by the impressive Zvikomborero Bizeck, Carlos Messi, Hardlife Mavundi and Lewis Matawu but the team gelled well.


Saturday: FC Platinum v Hwange; How Mine v Bantu Rovers; Harare City v CAPS United

Sunday: Triangle United v Chiredzi; Highlanders v Shabanie Mine; Dynamos v Kariba; Black Rhinos v Chapungu United; Buffaloes v Chicken Inn
