Will Many­atsi prove a point against Downs?

Observer on Saturday - - Sport - MANZINI SUN­DOWNS

match be­tween the two sides has al­ways been a thriller, and although Swal­lows have tri­umphed the last few matches, Sun­downs had the last laugh as they beat the cap­i­tal city gi­ants 1-0 in their first round en­counter.

Swal­lows in­terim head coach Musa Many­atsi would be fac­ing his for­mer em­ploy­ers in Sun­downs and will want to prove a point on his abil­i­ties.

APreda­tor Sa­belo ‘Sikhali’ Ndzin­isa is ex­pected to make his long an­tic­i­pated re­turn to the field and this is something that will be ex­tra spe­cial for the ‘Birds’ fans and what bet­ter way for ‘Sikhali’ to an-nounce his re­turn with a banger.

The game is also a spe­cial one for the Beau­ti­ful Birds, as they will be play­ing in mem­ory of their slain boss Vic­tor ‘Maradona’Gamedze, whom they last saw around this time last year, af­ter be­ing gunned down on Jan­uary 14.

It will be an ex­cit­ing en­counter and sup­port­ers can brace them­selves for fire­works. Coach: Cap­tain: Key play­ers: Match win­ner: Coach: Cap­tain: Key play­ers: Match win­ner: irst round cham­pi­ons Green Mamba fin­ished the first round on a rather bad note in the field of play, as they were handed their third loss of the sea­son in the last game.

They were also booted out of the Ing­wenyama Cup by Na­tional First Di­vi­sion (NFD) side Madlenya in the round of 32, fin­ish­ing their year on a bad note.
