Sidama Coffee Vs St George – Yirgalem Stadium
Less than 48 hours after parting ways with Uganda Cranes defender Isaac Isinde, record Ethiopian champions, St George visit the intimidating Yirgalem Stadium for an away tie against Sidama Coffee on Sunday evening.
This is one of the games in the week 6 of the top flight league that has 8 matches in whole.
Uncharacteristically,  St.George has failed to register maximum points from the past two games losing 2-0 to Fasil Kenema in Gondar and being held to a goal-less draw by Adama City in Addis Ababa a week later.
Uganda Cranes goalkeeper Robert Odongkara, also the first choice in St George goal predicts a fair challenge.
We are set for the match and require maximum points.
Odongkara will be joined by another Ugandan, Yassar Mugerwa, a midfielder.
Sidama Coffee is a club for the famous Sidama coffee farmers.
They are currently second on the log with 9 points, one less of St George.
They will look to Kenyan veteran forward Eric Harrison Muranda and the new signing Sunday Mutuko, also a Kenyan midfielder.
Dedebit, who are currently third with 8 points play at home to Ethio-Electric.
