Newly promoted side Yadah FC how are going to be playing their first home game tomorrow at the National Sports Stadium against the Kariba based ZPC Kariba FC.
The two teams have never meet in the premiership before and history is going to be made tomorrow although Yadah FC drew their first match in the premier league last week.
The new promoted team is consisted of both first timers and experienced players in the premier soccer league with their 18 year old starlet Leroy Mavhunga who stole limelight on their first game against Harare City that ended in a stalemate. Another promising star, Leroy Murape, young brother to former Dynamos FC Assistant Coach, Murape Murape and the veterian goalkeeper Tafadzwa Dube are some of the players on Yadah gunners squad that is seeking to earn maximum points for the team.
The combination of the two Leroys could take Yadah FC to another level, considering they have the same quality and seem to have created a good rapport, something that could prove decisive for the Prophet Walter Magaya run team.
In an interview with Yadah FC Coach, Jairos Tapera said he is under no pressure as his team was quickly adapting to his game plan despite being in the premier league for the first time.
“As the new guys in the premier league, we hope to quickly adapt to the premier league, so we are definitely looking for positive results to enable us to remain in the premier league at the end of the season.
“Playing against ZPC Kariba is going to be a tough match because at one point this team was running for the title and they have more experience that us,” said Tapera.
Commented on Leroy Mavhunga, Tapera said he need to keep on working hard who has a bright future should he remain focused on his game.
“Leroy played a good match against Harare City and if he keeps on working hard, he will be a good player, still young and have a bright future,” added Tapera.
