CAN Highlanders bonce back from their setback against noisy neighbours Chicken Inn?

Kelvin Kaindu and his men know that their mental character will be under scrutiny today when they take on  unpredictable Herentals at Rufaro.

It is one of the six midweek league matches set for today.

Bosso are still smarting from a 1-2 defeat at the hands of the Gamecocks.

It was Highlanders’ first defeat of the season.

Kaindu knows that his men have to respond because that is the only way to show that they have the character to last the distance.

Chicken Inn will have a date with Hwange at Luveve.

“It’s another tricky game for us. Hwange have the potential to surprise any club. Yes, they lost a number of players and they are in a rebuilding process but we can underestimate them at our own peril,” said Gamecocks coach Joey Antipas.

“In Nation Dube, they have an experienced coach, so it’s going to be a big fight.”

Dube said:

“I think it’s always tricky to play a team like Chicken Inn at their home ground. However, we will try to match them as we are also in the league to compete.”

Bulawayo Chiefs have a date against TelOne at Gweru’s Bata Stadium.

Champions Ngezi Platinum Starshave struggled to fire since the start of the season and will get another test when they host Yadah at Baobab Stadium.

Khama Billiat started from the bench when the Miracle Boys were held to a goalless draw by Chegutu Pirates at the Heart Stadium on Saturday.

He has fully recovered and is set to be thrown into the starting XI as he searches for his first goal. Another former Zimbabwe international, Evans Rusike, knows the focus is also on him to start scoring for Yadah.
