Dedebit host Hawassa City on Saturday at Addis Ababa Stadium without coach Yohannes Sahle who was sacked Tuesday 29 for unconvincing performance as Ethiopian Premier League enters week 4.
Asrat Haile who has been serving as the technical director will be in charge as the blues seek to bounce back from Woldia City draw last week.
Hawassa on the other hand will be gunning for second maximum points after slaying Arbaminch 2-0 in week 3.
Seven more matches will be staged a day later across the country with defending champions St. George playing outside the capital away to Fasil Kenema for the first time this season.
The “horsemen” remain unscathed and will be in no mood to drop any points in Gondar. However, they will have to be at their very best against Fasil who are tails up after 1-0 win over Ethiopian Bunna in their last match.
The biggest clash of the day will no doubt be Adama City versus Ethiopian Bunna in Adama. The tie has a bad history of violence, with expectations of both fans always sky high.
Bunna are yet to reap three points from a match this season and will be going for a kill while Adama, fresh from halting Woliata Dicha’s 100% run will be in no mood to dish out easy wins especially at home.
