Highlanders will be hoping to build up from last Sunday’s victory in the Battle of Zimbabwe when they return to action this afternoon.

Tshilamoya won 3-0 against Dynamos in a match played at Barbourfields Stadium and they face Mutare City Rovers at Vengere Stadium.

With only one day to prepare for the encounter, the Bulawayo Giants will need to approach with caution as other top teams like Ngezi Platinum and CAPS United fell at the hands of the struggling Eastern Highlands team.

Rovers are also coming from a heavy 6-0 defeat in their previous match, and they will be looking to bounce back in order to boost their chances of surviving the relegation.

The reverse fixture between the two sides ended in a 1-0 win for Bosso.

At Luveve Stadium, CAPS United captain Hardlife Zvirekwi will miss the game against Chicken Inn.

Zvirekwi is unavailable after he excused himself to attend personal issues. Peter Moyo is also out while Kudzai Nyamupfukudza, Denis Dauda and Justice Jangano are nursing injuries.

The Gamecocks, on the other hand, have no major absentees in their squad. They currently occupy the third position with 47 points.

Log Leaders FC Platinum are in the capital to play Black Rhinos at National Sports Stadium while second-placed Ngezi Platinum entertains ZPC Kariba at Baobab Stadium.

At other centres, Shabanie Mine welcome Yadah, Herentals host Bulawayo Chiefs, Triangle United lock horns with Harare City and Nichrut play Bulawayo City.
