HOW Mine coach Philani “Beefy” Ncube says the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match against Black Rhinos set for Luveve Stadium on Sunday will not be an easy task as the army side is not in a good position on the log table.
The match promises to be exciting as How Mine, sitting on position eight with 32 points from 22 games, would want to move up the log table while Black Rhinos are aware that they need to start picking up points if they are to survive the chop.
Black Rhinos are on position 13 with 23 points from 22 games.
The gold miners elbowed the army side out of the Mbada Diamonds Cup courtesy of a Timothy January second-half strike at Barbourfields Stadium last Sunday. They also collected maximum points in the first league encounter in Harare.
Despite the two wins, Ncube said they would not be taking the match lightly.
“We are not going to underestimate Black Rhinos even though we beat them in the cup game.
They are a very dangerous side and we need to work very hard in preparation for the game. We are, however, ready for the match, but we are still assessing our players,” he said.
