CAPS United coach Mark Mathe is treading on dangerous ground.

After being booted out of the Chibuku Super Cup last Sunday by ZPC Kariba, club owner Farai Jere is unimpressed.

And he is one man not afraid to feel the trigger if results don’t come.

So enter Flame Lily this Saturday at bumpy Larfarge and a loss will see Mathe one way out of the green door.

“'Caps is a big brand and coaching it always has its pressures, we have to pull up our socks and get the results as soon as possible.

“We had the game in our grasp against ZPC and we let it slip at the last moment. 

“It was lack of concentration and that’s one thing we have been trying to work on, so I hope we will come right,” Mathe says.

Tough ask coaching a club like Caps ... Mathe talks to his bench during a recent game

Striker Leonard Tsipa is available for the match despite the red card against ZPC Kariba and is looking towards repaying the faith the coaches have shown in leading the frontline.

Captain Hardlife Zvirekwi is another key member of the squad together with new signings Justice Jangano and Method Mwanjali.

While Caps and Mathe are looking over their shoulders, its all rosy for Norman Mapeza at FC Platinum.

Platinum host Hwange at Mandava and will be looking to capitalise on any slip up by Dynamos to sneak up into the top five.

Platinum have 25 points while Dynamos, who face Sunday Chidzambwa's ZPC have 29 and are fourth.

Leaders Chicken Inn (34 points) have an easy home date against Chapungu while second placed Triangle (32pts) are at White City for Tsholotsho.Third placed How Mine (29pts) host Highlanders at Barbourfields on Sunday.


Saturday: Harare City vs Dongo Sawmill (Rufaro), Chicken Inn vs Chapungu (Luveve), FC Platinum vs Hwange (Mandava), Tsholotsho vs Triangle (White City), Flame Lily vs Caps United (Larfarge)

Sunday: Dynamos vs ZPC (Rufaro), How Mine vs Highlanders (Barbourfields), Whawha vs Buffaloes (Ascot)
