TRIANGLE United coach Kelvin Kaindu is optimistic that his side will return to winning ways when they host wounded How Mine in a Castle Lager Premiership match at Gibbo tomorrow.

The Lowveld side are keen to reinforce their position among the leading teams in the race.

But their campaign suffered a dent in the 2-3 defeat at FC Platinum last week. How Mine also lost their match 1-0 to league champions Dynamos on the same day. However, Kaindu is looking to build on his side’s solid home run where they have not dropped a single point in all five matches played at Gibbo this season.

Triangle have been scoring for fun, having netted not less than 21 times at an average of 4.2 goals per game, in front of their home fans.

Kaindu, who reckons his side has accomplished their target of collecting as many points in the first third of the campaign, said he is happy to be back playing in their backyard against a good How Mine side.

“We are playing at home against one of the best sides considering how active How Mine have been on the market.

“They have assembled a very good set of players, we have respect for them and they have been favourites to go all the way.

“We will, however, play them in our own backyard, we have adapted well to our field and, hopefully, we will get a good result on Sunday,” said Kaindu.

Triangle occupy second spot with 20 points from 10 games on the standings.

Luke Masomere’s How Mine are fifth with 25 points.

Despite injuries dogging their camp, Kaindu remains positive about his charges.

The Lowveld side will again miss midfielders Cabby Kamhapa, Tichaona Chipunza and Malvin Gaki as well injured defender Jimmy Dzingai and club top marksman Richard Kawondera. Praise Tonha will face a late fitness test and might feature against the gold miners.

There will be no matches in Harare this afternoon as Harare City will travel to Buffaloes.

Taurai Mangwiro’s men dropped crucial points in their last two games after conceding stoppage time goals in identical 1-1 draws with Highlanders and Hwange. Flame Lily will be away at high-flying Chapungu while league champions Dynamos host Tsholotsho Pirates on Monday afternoon. Log leaders Chicken Inn have a tricky away task at Hwange this afternoon where they look to maintain their three-point cushion at the summit.
