WARRIORS ON TARGET
Players expected to make the Warriors squad for next month’s World Cup qualifiers continue to enjoy game time at their clubs, a development coach Zdravko Logarusic described as “positive.”
“The boys we are expecting to play in the World Cup qualifiers continue to be regular starters at their clubs, something which is positive for us. “We will continue monitoring them. Like I said, we are going to call more players we have used before,” said Logarusic.
Fullback Tendayi Darikwa continues with his top form for Wigan Athletic in England’s League One as they ran out 2-0 winners over Charlton on Saturday.
Darikwa scored his first goal for the Latics, describing it as a special moment.
“It was a special moment to score first Latics goal. “To score my first goal for the football club with the armband on, in front of the away end, I’m happy about it,” Darikwa told the club’s website after the match. Darikwa is expected to carry his form back home as Zimbabwe play South Africa and Ethiopia on September 3 and 7 respectively.
He said they should work on keeping the form and work for positive results going forward.
“It’s a great moment for myself to finally get on the score sheet.
“It’s been a while since I’ve scored a goal, but the main thing is that it was an important goal for the team.
“We’re starting to create a lot of chances and looking solid at the other end. Now it’s up to us to keep our levels high and getting positive results,” said Darikwa.
Defender Brandon Galloway, who is expected to make his Warriors debut next month, continues to enjoy game time at Plymouth Argyle.
Galloway was rated eight as Plymouth produced a best away performance in the League One with a convincing 3-0 victory over Shrewsbury Town on Saturday.
“If he can stay fit — and that unfortunately has been an issue for him throughout his career – Galloway could turn out to be an excellent signing for the Pilgrims with the undoubted quality that he possesses,” reported PlymouthLIve.
