Hwange Football Club remain positive of their 2019 Castle Lager premiership campaign despite stuttering in their last couple of encounters as they brace for high flying Caps United this Sunday at the Colliery.

Chipangano as Hwange is popularly known, had started the season with lots of enthusiasm, declaring their desire to land their hands on the championship trophy but has of late started to drop points.

From the barren draw against struggling Highlanders at Barbourfields Stadium, Hwange went on to lose two consecutive matches against Chapungu at home and Black Rhinos on the road.

While predicting a difficult fixture against Caps United on Sunday, head coach Nation Dube revealed that he was unfazed by the latest slump as his charges were still within their targets with just six points separating them with the log leaders.

On Sunday, Chipangano will have to be at their best to upstage the high flying log leaders, Makepekepe, with players Proud Muleya and Andrew Chuma optimistic of a positive result.

In yesteryear encounters, the Colliery was a difficult fortress for visiting sides although this year has seen the hosts once coming second best to the Air Force men, Chapungu.
