CASTLE Lager Premier Soccer League football fiesta beckons with potentially explosive fixtures lined up across the country.

With a total of 66 goals having been scored so far, early pacesetters Chicken Inn, who have posted three wins in a row, will make the trip to Mhondoro for a date against bruised Ngezi Platinum Stars at Baobab Stadium on Good Friday.

Ngezi Platinum Stars are smarting from a 2-1 away defeat at the hands of red-hot Hwange.

The blazing coal embers will hope to continue to engulf their opponents when they meet fellow miners FC Platinum Stars at Mandava Stadium on Easter Saturday.

Hwange, who returned to the country’s topflight league this year after a one year dance in Southern Region Division One league, have had a positive start with a three-match winning run that has seen them account for Yadah FC, Dynamos and Ngezi Platinum Stars.

Luveve Stadium will be the venue for a game between struggling Bulawayo Chiefs and ZPC Kariba.

Former champions CAPS United will do battle against army side Black Rhinos at Rufaro Stadium.

On Easter Monday, winless Highlanders will entertain their bogey side Triangle.

Dynamos will fight it out against Herentals at Rufaro Stadium while free-spending Manica Diamonds square up against fellow premiership newboys Mushowani Stars at Gibbo Stadium.

Chapungu will lock horns with Harare City at Mandava Stadium to conclude the league’s Week Four fixtures programme.
