DeMbare beat Hwange 2-0 at Rufaro Stadium in May with Washington Pakamisa and Farai Mupasiri on target, but the coal miners have always been hard to beat in their own turf.

On Sunday they kicked out FC Platinum from the Mbada Diamonds Cup with a penalty by Gerald Ndlovu.

Glamour Boys coach Kalisto Pasuwa has made his intentions of defending the title clear having won the last three league matches in Harare — beating bitter rivals Caps United 1-0, Harare City 3-1 and Motor Action 1-0.

The three wins came after they had been held to a goalless draw by Black Rhinos at Rimuka Stadium in Kadoma on July 21.

As Dynamos seek to stretch the lead at the apex, Hwange gaffer Nation Dube has the headache of trying to steer the coal miners away from the relegation zone as they precariously sit on position 13 on the table with 22 points from 21 matches.

Chicken Inn, still putting up a fight and nursing hopes of landing the title while seven points behind Dynamos on position six, have what looks like an easy assignment today when they take on struggling Motor Action and the Motor Action Sports Club in Harare.

The GameCox are coming from a convincing 3-0 win in the quarter-finals of the Mbada Diamonds Cup after dispatching Sup8r Cup winners Shabanie Mine at Mandava Stadium on Saturday.

The beat Black Rhinos 2-1 in their last league match through a brace by Clement Matawu, also on target in the 3-0 extermination of Shabanie Mine on Saturday.

Giant-killers How Mine will take the long trip to Mutare for a date with Buffaloes at Sakubva Stadium while strugglers Tripple B are also away to equally-troubled Monomotapa in Harare tomorrow.

Today: Harare City v Shabanie Mine (Rufaro), Motor Action v Chicken Inn (Motor Action Stadium), Buffaloes v How Mine (Sakubva), Caps United v Triangle (National Sports Stadium) Hwange v Dynamos (Colliery), Highlanders v FC Platinum (Barbourfields)
Tomorrow: Monomotapa v Tripple B (Gwanzura)
