On the same Saturday afternoon, Yadah FC aka Miracle Boys is targeting nothing less than maximum points aiming to afflict more pain on Caps United that is nursing the Harare Derby injuries inflicted by Dynamos.

Sheasham sits one place above relation zone and will be using Bata Stadium for the first time this season seeks to capitalize on home advantage when they play log leaders Highlanders in what is expected to be an epic clash.
