Zimbabwe and Seychelles will meet in the 2017 COSAFA Cup Group B match at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg, South Africa on Friday.

Kick-off is at 17h00 CAT.

The Warriors were held to a goalless stalemate by Madagascar in their previous group match at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Wednesday.

The draw sees Zimbabwe remain at the top of Group B standings with four points. They are only ahead of second-placed Madagascar on goal difference.

Ovidy Karuru, who scored twice against Mozambique in Zimbabwe's first match, is the dangerman for the Sunday Chidzambwa-coached side.

Meanwhile, Seychelles were defeated 2-1 by Mozambique in their previous group match which was played at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Wednesday.

The defeat left the Pirates placed fourth on the Group B standings without a single point. They have already been eliminated from the competition.

Rodney Choisy, the Seychelles coach, will look to Bertrand Esther, who plays for St Louis and he is one of the senior players in the Pirates squad.

A victory over Seychelles will see Zimbabwe advance to the quarter-finals as the Group B winners.
