DYNAMOS have a chance to maintain a comfortable lead at the top of the Castle Premiership log when they host lowly Chapungu at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday.

The defending champions lead the table with 49 points, two off ZPC Kariba who have a tough tie against FC Platinum at Mandava Stadium in Zvishavane on Saturday.

Hoping that Platinum and ZPC cancel each other in the match, Dynamos will increase their lead and will go seven points clear if ZPC lose.

Dynamos have been buoyed by the return of goalkeeper Artwell Mukandi from a three-week injury suffered in the game against Shabanie Mine and Simba Sithole who has been struggling with a hamstring injury.

Anesu Gondo and Devon Chafa have been ruled out while Chapungu will miss the services of Brighton Mugoni and Blessed Mbavarira through injury.

FC Platinum, who have not lost in their last three matches, collecting seven points from a possible nine, welcome second placed ZPC to Mandava with a place in the top four up for grabs. Platinum lie in sixth place with 38 points, one behind Highlanders but level with Hwange, who are fifth.

In other matches this weekend, Caps United are off to Gibbo Stadium for a date with Triangle on Sunday. Caps lie in third place with 45 points and three more on the road will edge them closer to leaders Dynamos, hoping that ZPC don’t win.

Struggling Highlanders take their troubles back to Hartsfield to face Chicken Inn in a Bulawayo derby well aware that a fourth defeat in a row will all but heap the pressure on interim coach Mark Mathe and an executive that faces an election in January.

Bosso lie in fourth place with 39 points, where they have been stuck in the last month as the rest of the teams failed to take advantage of their slump.

Elsewhere, Buffaloes, who lost 1-0 to Dynamos last week, welcome Harare City to Sakubva on Sunday.

Fifteenth placed Bantu Rovers have a date against equally struggling Shabanie Mine at Hartsfield on Saturday while Hwange, still chasing a top four finish, can do themselves a big favour if they beat Black Rhinos at Rimuka in Kadoma on Saturday.

Hwange are on 38 points, the same as Platinum.

FIXTURES

Saturday: Bantu Rovers v Shabanie Mine (Hartsfield), Black Rhinos v Hwange (Rimuka SS9), FC Platinum v ZPC Kariba (Mandava)

Sunday: Buffaloes v Harare City (Sakubva), Triangle v Caps United (Gibbo), Dynamos v Chapungu (Rufaro SS9), Highlanders v Chicken Inn (Hartsfield)
