Yadah gaffer Genesis Mangombe expects a tough tie and his team will miss Leeroy Mavunga and Byron Madzokere, who are on national duty.

He is confident new recruits, Godknows Mangani and Sydney Linyama, can make the difference.

“We know it is going to be a difficult game against a team in the same zone as us,’’ said Mangombe.

“We have the same objective of moving up from the relegation zone.

“So, it is going to be a battle and we think, as a team, we have done enough preparations and we are ready for the game.

“Although we do not have our captain Byron and Leeroy, who are on national duty, I believe that we reinforced our team very well during the break.’’
