AMBITIOUS Eastern Region Division One log leaders Manica Diamonds’ fine run will be put to test by second-placed Tenax at Mutare Boys High this afternoon. Manica Diamonds are enjoying a fine run since gaining promotion at the beginning of the season.
Under the guidance of coach Luke “Vahombe” Masomere, Manica Diamonds have been flying in the first 13 matches.
Tenax coach Blessing Madhombi believes they can beat the diamond miners. We are ready though we are expecting a tough match. We are hopeful that we will bounce back and pick up a win although I must admit it will not be an easy encounter,” said Madhombi.
Tenax are coming from a 1-1 draw with Zero One Zero and will miss the services of midfielder Promise Simango and leftback Connie Simango.
