Nyikadzino, whose record of leading teams from the lower rung is only second to the late Lindile Dube, has so far had it tough in Zimbabwe’s topflight.

He has lost twice (0-4 Dynamos; Bulawayo Chiefs 2-0), managed one win (Cranborne 1-2) and drawn seven times to place him 17th on the 18 team log.

A source close to developments at the Midlands side told Nyikadzino might not be the Sheasham Coach by end of this weekend’s round of matches if Innocent Benza’s Herentals beat him at reopened Bata Stadium.

“Nyikadzino has been given an altimatum; deliver a minimum of four points from the next two games between Herentals and Manica or face the chop,” said the source who cannot be revealed for professional reasons.

Nyikadzino welcomes tricky Kumbirai Mutiwekuziva, the Herentals Gaffer at Bata Stadium on Saturday before travelling to Chiredzi to face off Manica Diamonds at Gibbo.

Manica Diamonds have not lost in their last four matches, collecting eight points out of a possible 12.

Herentals on the other hand are just a point above him.
