The Zimbabwean football fraternity will be beaming with pride on Saturday when two of the country’s exports; Norman Mapeza and Kaitano Tembo, meet in an ABSA Premiership encounter at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth.

The two coaches, who lead South African top division sides Chippa United and SuperSport United respectively, meet for the first time in their managerial careers.

Mapeza’s resurgent Chilli Boys have been impressive, and won three of their last four league games, surging out of the relegation zone in the process.

Tembo’s Matsansansa on the hand, have been equally impressive, with ther last defeat in all competitions being the 0-1 defeat to Golden Arrows in the Telkom Knockout on the 2nd of November.

They (SuperSport) are currently second on the table behind runaway leaders Kaizer Chiefs.
