Railstars Bulawayo Squad Returns To Play Following Road Accident


Bulawayo's Railstars soccer team - or most of it - returns to the field Saturday for the first time since a highway accident sidelined the squad two weeks ago.

Railstars faces Chrome Stars at Mbizo Stadium in Kwekwe to make up a first-round CBZ Cup match missed last weekend when team members were still recovering.

Railstars captain and goalkeeper Chenjerai Dube tells reporter Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe that a couple of his players are still on the injured list after the crash in which a burst tire sent the team minibus off the road.

Elsewhere in Zimbabwe football, the Premier Soccer League is suspending most of its schedule the weekend of Sept. 7-8 due to the absence of Warriors players heading to Blantyre, Malawi, for an African Nations Cup qualifier Saturday against the Flames.

Just one premier league game is set this week-end: Buymore and Mwana Africa meet Sunday in Harare's Rufaro Stadium.
