Struggling Bulawayo giants Highlanders face a stern test this afternoon when they host a tricky Herentals in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match at Barbourfields Stadium.

Madinda Ndlovu’s men, who are yet to taste victory this campaign, will be hoping that the football gods finally smile at them and collect their first set of maximum points.

In Herentals, they face a side capable of frustrating any giant, as evident by their 1-0 triumph over Dynamos and a nil-all draw with FC Platinum earlier on this season.

The Students will also be looking to bounce back from last week’s defeat to Manica Diamonds, setting the stage for a potentially mouth-watering encounter.

They are yet to beat the Bulawayo side since their promotion to the league, and that might also push them to get a positive result this afternoon.

Kick off is 3 pm.
