HERENTALS coach Kumbirai Mutiwekuziva will welcome back midfielder Richard Hachiro when his side take on Shabanie Mine in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match at National Sports Stadium this afternoon.
Hachiro had been with the Warriors at the COSAFA Cup and played cameo roles in the success story.
“We are happy with the return of Ritchie, who has been with the Warriors and I can’t wait to unleash him in our next game,’’ said the coach.
“I think he gained a thing or two at the national team. The team has been struggling to score and our last game against Chicken Inn showed that as we created more than four clear-cut chances.
“The good thing is that we are playing some beautiful football, but we are not good in front of goal, a thing which I believe we have worked on.’’
Mutiwekuziva will miss the services of his best player so far this season, Carlos Mavhurume, who is suspended for accumulating three yellow cards.
“It’s going to be tough, he is one of our top performers this season and we will improvise. We have Brighton Majarira as cover and we believe in his abilities, so we will see how it goes. The other thing is we are not looking much into Shabanie Mine’s problems as that may make us relax.
“We will focus on our game, the team has been playing well and we will not sit back,” added Mutiwekuziva.
Shabanie Mine have serious financial problems and recently parted ways with coach Takesure Chiragwi and they are sitting second from bottom.
