CAPS United will miss three regular players when they face Chicken Inn in a top-of-the-table clash on Wednesday.

The Green Machine are leading in the title race with a five-point gap, but their pursuit for the championship suffered a blow last week after Method Mwanjale was ruled out for the rest of the season with a broken leg.

Midfielder Kudzai Nyamupfukudza is also out nursing an injury and will be joined on the sidelines on Wednesday by defender Valentine Musarurwa who will be serving a yellow card suspension.

Coach Darlington Dodo is also likely to miss the game following the death of his son, Don, on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Guide Goddard will not be available for selection in the Chicken Inn squad after accumulating three yellow cards.

The match will be played at Luveve Stadium in Bulawayo. Kick-off is at 3 pm.
