THE ZIFA Northern Region Division One Soccer League is back from a month-long mid-season break.

The pick of the battles will be at Motor Action Sports Club where Herentals are hosting MWOS FC tomorrow.

This heavyweight fixture will see the two sides, who are tipped to have a huge say in the championship marathon, battling to prove who wants it more.

The Young Students sit fourth on the league table and are just seven points behind leaders, Black Mambas.

The Punters are a point behind their opponents and have been performing better on the road while they have recorded just two victories on home soil.

Herentals coach, Paul Benza, feels the break was a bit too long for the players.

“It’s good to be playing again but I hope the break will not be this long again next time.

“The boys are positive and they are raring to showcase their talent.

“For us, every game is important and we approach all fixtures with a positive mind to collect maximum points.

“We have no injury worries and our expectation is to give our best and collect maximum points but we always thrive to play good football,” said Benza.

Unbeaten Black Mambas will get their second round underway by welcoming Golden Eagles at home tomorrow.

Coach John “Toto” Ncube has guided Warumwa Warumwa to 10 wins and seven draws and pundits believe it’s his championship race to lose.

But, Gondoharishaye are not push overs, which makes this assignment an exciting match to watch despite these two sides being separated by nine points.

Harare City know that a victory against Chinhoyi Stars will help them keep pace with Black Mambas.

They are just five points off the pace.

They will be also banking on the experience of veteran midfielder, Ali Sadiki, who they recently signed to boost their cause.

Concession, who remain the only winless team in the league, visit Ngezi Platinum Stars Under-19 at Baobab today.
