Bulawayo derby on the cards as PSL returns this weekend

The Castle Lager Premier Soccer League resumes this weekend with the much anticipated match the Bulawayo derby pitting league giants How Mine and Highlanders on Sunday at Barbourfields stadium and Dynamos host ZPC Kariba at Rufaro stadium.

Barely a week ago the two sides met in the Chibuku Super Cup tournament and Bosso were knocked out of the tournament by How Mine.

How Mine will be hoping maintain their current form as they host Highlanders in a Bulawayo derby and the gold miners are currently on 29 points on third position a few points shy from the log leaders triangle.

Bosso are on position nine on the log-table from 17 games and they have gone six games without a victory and they will be hoping to redeem themselves in their ceremonial stadium.

How Mine lost their last game against Hwange in a battle of miners and they will be looking forward to stay in the top three as they are on the same points with Dynamos only separated by goal difference.

The Bulawayo giants are in an unfamiliar position on the log table with just 22 points from 17 games and their coach Bongani Mafu is under pressure from fans to deliver as they have gone six games without a win.
