They are yet to taste a win.
Another Manicaland representative, Tenax Queens will travel all the way to Kadoma to face Golden Valley. Tenax suffered a narrow defeat when they were dismissed 41-42 by third placed Beta Queens, last week. Coach Naphtali Nyangulu urged his charges top remain focused after that defeat.
“We lost to by just a point to Beta Queens. I told the girls to improve this weekend as we travel to Kadoma. We want to improve on our performance. My set target for this year is just a top 10 finish, and aim higher next season. Some of my players are still adjusting to life in the new league, so I do not want to set unrealistic targets,” he said.
