Tsholotsho are the only team in the league that have not lost, but are placed third on the log with 23 points.

They have played 11 games won six and drawn five of those while their opponents are on ninth position with 11 points from 10 games.

Last weekend New West played a 2-2 draw against former champions Plumtree Chiefs making it their second draw of the season.

They have already won three games and lost five with Crispen Machisi and Eriko Phiri on target for New West.

Tsholotsho did not have a match at the weekend and would be hoping that the rest they had will be enough to give New West a tough match.

Technosphere who are second on the log but tied on points with log leaders Ntabazinduna, will be seeking a win against Portland Cement with the hope of breaking away from the pack in a match to be played in Portland Cement.

Technosphere have won seven of their 12 encounters, drawn four and lost one.

Last weekend they beat power utility company ZPC Hwange 3-0 with Munyando Zulu scoring a brace while Reason Ndlovu added the third.

Portland lost their fifth match of the season to Black Boots 0-1 and are second from the bottom of the log with six points.

They will be hoping home advantage will tilt their way so that they start picking up points as the league moves towards the half-way mark.

With some teams having already played up to 13 games, Portland would be banking on the fact that they still have four games in hand.
Log anchors Old Nic Mine who are still to taste victory visit Hwange Under-20 in Hwange.

Old Nic drew their third match at the weekend and have collected three points since the start.

Hwange are on position six with 19 points and would want to continue winning after they beat Quelaton 2-1 last weekend.

In another match Black Boots will take on ZPC Hwange with only a point separating the two teams on position five and seven respectively.

Former Hwange and Mine player Simon Njeleza was on target for Black Boots last weekend.

Former league champions Plumtree Chiefs will be at home to Mpumalanga in a match to be played at White City Stadium.

Chiefs are on fourth position on the log while Mpumalanga are 10th.

Victoria Falls-based Trumus will take on Quelaton in a match to be played in the resort town on Sunday. The former Premier Soccer League side, Quelaton, have struggled to find their footing this season and are third from the bottom of the log having won once and amassed seven points.
