For more than one reason, the focus in tonight’s clash between Green Mamba against Vovovo F.C will be squarely on coach Caleb Ngwenya.

The Correctional Services side mentor has a mammoth task of not only keeping his team within touching distance of the title chasing top two teams; Mbabane Swallows and Young Buffaloes. However, he faces the responsibility of avenging a first round defeat for his team against Vovovo, which he ironically masterminded during his brief stint with the elite league rookies early this season.

To be precise, it was on Saturday September 23, 2017 at Killarney Sports Ground; Vovovo beat Green Mamba 1-0 to put the future of then coach Harries ‘Madze’ Bulunga in jeopardy. It was a 55th minute strike by Mxolisi Tsabedze that earned Vovovo all three points.
Tonight, he has to avenge a wound he inflicted and beyond that, he had to keep his unbeaten league run with the club intact.
Will it be easy? I don’t think so. Vovovo have boosted their confidence with a convincing 1-0 win over fourth placed Manzini Wanderers on Sunday, in what was the first Y’ello Sunday of the New Year.

Under Coach Musa Mamba, the Motshane based ensemble seemed to have discovered the form that saw them soar to the top four during Caleb’s time. And the form showed by debutant forward Sibanesenkhosi Zwane, has given the team a reason to believe they can tackle the best in the league and come out unscathed.

The youngster seemed to have formed a telepathic understanding with Mancoba Mavimbela and Phinda Nkonyane upfront. The team could be further boosted by the return of striker Mohammed Sabella, who missed the victory over Wanderers.
