WHEN a veteran footballer meets his students!

Relegation threatened Bulawayo City are set to unleash veteran forward Obadiah Tarumbwa on visiting Herentals when the two teams clash at Barbourfields Stadium on Saturday.

Tarumbwa (37), a veteran of many football battles, recently parted ways with ambitious Bulawayo Chiefs and he has been reportedly impressive at City training sessions with the club’s coaches indicating that they are likely to field him against the Harare-based students.

“We hope to utilise him. He just has to continue working like he is doing. He will play,” said Bulawayo City head coach Farai Tawarechera.

Before joining Bulawayo City, Tarumbwa briefly trained with Caps United.

The municipal side is third from the bottom of the PSL table after amassing 21 points from 22 outings. They are just a point away from escaping the chop, with Harare City and ZPC Kariba only a point ahead of Amakhosi in position 14 and 15, respectively.

Ambitious Bulawayo Chiefs will travel to Harare for a date against former champions Dynamos at the National Sports Stadium. In their previous match, Chiefs accounted for Tenax CS on a 2-0 score line while DeMbare made light weight of title contenders Chicken Inn with a 3-0 victory.

On Saturday, Nyamhunga Stadium will be the venue for the game between ZPC Kariba and bruised Gamecocks who now trail log leaders FC Platinum with six points.

FC Platinum beat ZPC Kariba in their Week 22 fixture and on Saturday they will lock horns with Harare City at the National Sports Stadium.  Without fired Benjani Mwaruwari and Bongani Mafu in their dugout, Ngezi Platinum will entertain Triangle at Baobab Stadium.
