Zimbabwe: Rhinos Face AYSA

Black Rhinos look set to consolidate their position at the top of the Zifa Northern Region Division One table when they take on relegation-threatened Aces Youth Academy at One Commando this afternoon.

The soldiers have emerged firm favourites for the sole ticket into the top-flight game following their recent form, which saw them open a seven-point lead at the top of the table.

Rhinos have been in the country's second tier league for the past three years and last year they finished on third place, two points behind eventual winners Harare City.

Their long-serving coach Nesbert "Yabo" Saruchera, is looking forward to another good day in the office. "We are playing good football and we want to keep on collecting as many points as we can."
