Former twice Ethiopian premier league champion Hawassa Town visits the Capital today for the league season first round final showdown against home side Dedebit FC.
Astonishing debut 4-2 victory over defending champion Coffee followed by completely unexpected 1-0 away defeat to Arbaminch Town, newly appointed Dedebit head coach Hailemichael Tesfaye otherwise known as Kokobe needs a home win today to prove that he is a worthy replacement than his predecessor Gebremedin Haile who lost three of his four matches in a row. The visitors’ head coach Zelalem Shiferaw nick named Maurinho is also under pressure to prove him that he is the right choice to replace the club’s most popular head coach Kemal Ahmed currently with national league Lidetta Nyala. With Getaneh and five of his club mates in comparison against two from Hawassa are in the national squad ready for the midweek Ethiopia versus Benin home clash, thus a win by all means could be the motto of the visitors currently sixth in the league table with 18 points. Dedebit with 20 points from 12 matches already guaranteed third place finish in the season’s first round fixtures.
