NESBERT “Yabo” Saruchera’s ZIFA Northern Region Division One side Cranborne Bullets will host Al Buraak without influential striker Ray Malikwa this afternoon. Saruchera will travel to Ellis Robbins sitting in second place after last week’s 1-1 draw with Herentals Under-20.
He believes the absence of Malikwa will not be a big deal.
“I think we have enough cover and we will play hard, we need to bounce back to pole position.
“We need to be at our best to beat Al Buraak as they are also playing fairly well,” said Saruchera.
