WITH just a single win in 60 days, and a paltry six points out of a possible 30, Hwange are in trouble and look like a team that is headed for relegation, just 10 rounds into the 2024 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League season.

Chipangano anchor the log standings after managing only one win in 10 matches and coach Nation Dube is now skating on thin ice.

Since their opening 1-0 victory against Yadah at the Colliery on March 10, Hwange have now gone for nine consecutive matches without a win.

The best they have achieved, since Match Day Two, are three draws against Dynamos, Ngezi Platinum Stars and Herentals.

They looked out of place at Rufaro last weekend when they succumbed to a 3-0 defeat to CAPS United.

Hwange have conceded 14 times in 10 matches, at a rate of 1.4 goals per game, and have two clean sheets in the matches under review.

“We could have picked a much more positive result had we been solid at the back,” Dube said on Sunday.

Hwange have some unheralded names in their squad, including Lukas Sibanda and Kelly Shiyandindi.

Bekimpilo Ncube is their new number one, following the departure of Nedric Madeya.

Madeya joined Greenfuel at the beginning of the year.

Hwange also lost top striker Brighton Makopa to Chicken Inn.

Club chairman, Nairos Deredzai, says reports Dube is about to be sacked were “not true.”

But sources said there has been serious talk about Dube’s future.
