Arsenal's coach, Mr Owert Mammburu.
Madombidzha Arsenal aim to avenge their recent defeat at the hands of Madombidzha Western Stars in the final of the Phumudzo Manenzhe Foundation competition, when they meet in an MMK Administrators league match at Madombidzha tomorrow (Saturday).
Arsenal are still unbeaten after eight matches, with seven victories and a draw. They beat Maebane Young Eagles 3-1 last Sunday and are on top of their stream in the league.
Stars are in the 15th position with seven points. They did not play last week as the match against Greenway Academy could not take place, because the field of play had not been properly marked, and the referee had called the match off.
Stars’ coach, Mr Maanda “Screamer” Themeli, has promised their fans that they will get their performance right against Arsenal. “We are playing home and we can’t afford to drop points again. We must win the match for our fans.”
He added that they would focus now on the league and make sure that they improve their position on the log. “Personally, I feel that it is always nice to come up against Arsenal and hopefully we will get the desired result,” he added. He said that he was pleased with the squad they had assembled and the commitment the players had shown in the previous match.
The Arsenal coach, Mr Owert Mammburu, said that they were going to collect maximum points. “I know that a match of this magnitude has tension and pressure, but I would like all that tension and pressure to stay with me and the technical team on the bench and let the players be responsible and give their best on the field. I am convinced that we have invested in quality and talent.”
