Prodigal son Awillo “Rakhale” Stephanus played a pivotal role in the 3-0 thrashing of league returnees Life Fighters away from home, providing two assists as he showed no rustiness despite sitting out three weeks as he waited for his registration to be sorted out. BLUE WATERS Contrary to speculation that head coach, former Birds’ blueeyed boy Armando Pedro has not been seen in the dugout – the seasiders’ long-serving team manager Tostao Imbili has rubbished the rumours, saying the Bull’s absence was the result of his unavailability since he was outside the country. Pedro is a noted businessman and travels abroad quite often, hence his sporadic absence from the substitutes bench. According to Imbili, the Birds are itching to turn the tables when they welcome eternal rivals Tigers and Tura Magic respectively at their fortress, the Kuisebmond stadium, this weekend. CHIEF SANTOS Joint caretaker coach Gerros “The Bomber” Uri-Khob, has parted ways with the Copper Town lads after a short stint attributes the team’s poor start to shoddy preparations aided time if the team’s much-improved performance of late is any- one-match suspension after he was given marching orders in last weekend’s hard fought 1-0 triumph over Civics. CITIZENS After a somewhat unusual sluggish start to their league campaign this term the Citizens have silently moved away from the danger zone and currently sit comfortably in mid-table position. Club honcho Dawid Goagoseb brags that his charges still have what it takes to avoid relegation, adding that although the coveted league title is way beyond their aspirations, the Collecting four points from a possible six in last weekend’s league action away from home, Bro Dave is upbeat ahead of the double against the visiting Mighty Gunners and struggling Rundu Chiefs at home.

The to encroach the sacred top four bracket, traditionally occupied by the Katutura big four. ELEVEN ARROWS Former shot stopper Virgil Vries appears to have rediscovered the kind of form that propelled his departure from the domestic league to the stinking rich South African Professional Soccer League (PSL). The Berseba-born dreadlocked goalie has been a revelation between the sticks for his new club Baroka after being shipped out by his former club Maritzburg United at the beginning of the current campaign. Unfashionable Baroka amazingly top the PSL log standings. Back home, the gold and need to jack up their act if they are to avoid the embarrassment football league.

ORLANDO PIRATES There’s very little love lost, if any, between the Ghosts and Chief Santos. The form book will be thrown out of the window when the two giants cross swords in the peak of the Norich stadium in Tsumeb.

The huff-and-puff students will be without the services of Manchester McGuver as he starts his one-match suspension after he fell foul of the referee’s crime sheet shortly after the Clever Boys’ match against Eleven Arrows for an apparent provoked altercation with an Arrows player. YOUNG AFRICAN In what can be labelled a newly born derby for bragging rights on the horizon, the boys from the Cattle Country entertain the in-form log leaders African Stars at the Legare stadium in Gobabis tomorrow afternoon before confronting the equally dangerous Civilians a day later.
