NetOne Knockout quarter-finals set

BULAWAYO - New Orleans face an uphill task when they take on reigning National Women Super League champions Back Rhinos in a NetOne Knockout Tournament at White City Stadium at midday tomorrow.

The Bulawayo side was not convincing in their 3-0 victory over city neighbours Barrow Street Jets in the previous round but will be boosted by the return of Mighty Warriors star midfielder Nokuthula Ndlovu, who missed last week’s encounter because of national team commitments.

Former Highlanders striker Tobias Mudyambanje, who is the New Orleans caretaker coach in the absence of Micky “Abedi” Mugadza, was optimistic of victory over army side Rhinos.

“Our preparations are taking shape despite disruptions to our training by the rains,” Mudyambanje said.

“It’s like we will be venturing into the unknown since there were no league matches last year so we don’t know much about the current Rhinos team but we are looking forward to victory.”

The hosts will have to watch out for Rhinos’ Mighty Warriors stars that include Rufaro Machingura and Rutendo Makore.

Fixtures 

Auckland v Inline Academy (Jumbo Stadium, 11am), New Orleans v Black Rhinos (White City Stadium 12), Cyclone Stars v Flame Lily (Rufaro Stadium 11am) and Tanex Queens v Mufakose (Sakubva Stadium 11am).
