Some Zimbabwean soccer fans are angry at Premier Soccer League following the announcement of this weekend’s fixtures that seem to give Dynamos an advantage over teams trying to wrestle the championship from them.

Two of the leading teams, Chicken Inn and FC Platinum, are playing their game Saturday while third placed Dynamos is in action Sunday.

This, fans say, should not be so as it gives Dynamos an advantage as they will play their game knowing the results of their closest rivals.

This, says football follower Grail Kupakuwana, gives Dynamos an unfair advantage.

“It is very unfair, in my view,” says Kupakuwana. “These matches should have been played on the same day, especially now as we go towards the end of the season.”

Caps United fan, Misheck Chisaga, says at this time of the season the leading teams should play their games on the same day and at the same time.

“Things should have been done differently, this is very unfair, gives Dynamos the edge over others,” he said.

Chicken Inn faces neighbours How Mine.

Chisaga thinks the How Mine game will not be easy for the Game Corks.

Harare City have not been playing well in league matches but have all of a sudden picked-up form in the Chibuku Super Cup.

In three league matches, the Harare City fathers plundered in 12 goals and Dynamos should be wary of Harare City’s newly found form.

The defending champions will also be missing hard-man Steven Alimenda who is suspended and coach Tonderayi Ndiraya is a worried man.

The other football matches on the weekend menu are as follows.

ZPC Kariba v Caps United
Buffaloes v Tsholotsho
Triangle v Flame Lilly
Highlanders v Dongo Sawmills
Hwange v Chapungu
