Three new coaches will grace the touchlines this weekend with their respective Faz Premier League clubs when the top-flight enters week 13.
Zamtel FC, National Assembly FC and Red Arrows will have unfamiliar faces barking orders from the touchline this Saturday.
But Nakambala Leopards Chris “Gazza” Tembo makes a shocking late return on the bench there after a last-minute reprieve from the clubs seemingly undecided executive.
Former Zambia and Roan united midfielder Harrison Tembo is the new man in temporal charge at 3rd from bottom Red Arrows after latest casualty Mathews Phiri’s reported sacking this week.
Tembo will lead the 2004 league champions out against 11th placed Nakambala who welcome back his namesake on the bench after the chaotic musical chairs in Mazabuka.
Bottom of the table Zamtel meanwhile are at fellow strugglers but otherwise improving and 13h placed Roan United.
It will interesting to see if new Zamtel coach Emmanuel Mwelwa will shame us after Peter Kaumba’s sacking against Dickson Mwakwaza’s side.
The much traveled Chris Chibuye on the other hand will lead 4th from bottom Assembly at home when they face 9th from top Nchanga Rangers in his first match in charge since the sacking of Alfred Lupiya last week.
Elsewhere, leaders Zesco United host struggling Forest Rangers in the first installment of this seasons Ndola derby.
2nd placed Zanaco take the turn right up Great East Road to play Young Arrows at Nkoloma stadium.
Still in the Capital, Lusaka Dynamos are home where they take on Power Dynamos while City of Lusaka travel to Konkola Blades in 4th-versus-5th dogfight in Chililabombwe.
And at Railway Ground, number 8 placed Kabwe Warriors lie-in-wait for 7th positioned Green Buffaloes.
