BLACK Rhinos coach Herbert Maruwa is not throwing in the towel yet despite the competition in the title race.
Rhinos host Chicken Inn at the National Sports Stadium this Saturday in Match day 26.
Chauya Chipembere have dropped four points in their previous two fixtures after managing draws against Mushowani and Hwange.
“The race is wide open anything can happen; we need to believe in ourselves and push. Collecting a point away at Hwange was important for us because it’s always difficult to play Hwange away in terms of traveling, weather and their supporters
“The fans will enjoy at the end of the season. Now we need to focus on our next game against chicken Inn,” said Maruwa.
Maruwa told H-Metro that salvaging points in their last two fixtures was important but still believes they are in it.
“I salute my boys, I am happy they did well, I am also happy we are still in the race, I want to thank the match officials they did a good job what a fair officiating,” said Maruwa.
Ahead of the Chicken Inn game, Rhinos are buoyed by the return of three of their key players who were sidelined by injury.
“We welcome the trio of Mavellous Mukumba, Jameson Mukombwe and Edgar Chigiji.
“We are prepared for our next game no injuries yet will check as preparations go on,” said Maruwa.
The match is expected to produce fireworks as Chicken Inn are also seeking redemption following their poor show against Chapungu in their last encounter.
Joey Antipas’ men were held to a 1-1 draw.
