ZIFA Northern Region Division One side Kariba Waves’ coach, Oliver Mataba, says he is seeing huge improvements in his side and they will end Herentals Under-20’s fine start to the campaign. The two sides clash at Nyamhunga tomorrow.
Mataba’s youthful side will face the undefeated side from the capital in Week Four of the programme.
“We had a slow start to the season but we are coming up and being at home will come with some advantages,’’ said Mataba.
‘’We know the Herentals Under-20 are doing well but we have prepared well for them.
“We are confident in the young players and we are happy that Herentals are a development side which we can match. ‘’The team is made up of mainly Under-23 players with only three senior players in former Triangle player Esimos Kamunda, captain Harrison Mudyavanhu and goalkeeper Keith Mavhunga.’’
