Heroes FC will have their sights set on the ticket to the 2019/2020 Azam Rwanda Premier League when they take on Etoile de l’Est in Ngoma District on Wednesday. Kick-off 3:30pm.

Heroes travel to Ngoma District with one foot into the final of the second division league after beating Etoile de l’Est 2-0 in the first leg of the two sides’ semi-final tie last Friday.

Speaking to Times Sport on Tuesday, Heroes coach Jean Marie Vianney Nkeshimana said that “nothing is decided yet” and urged his players to go into the match ‘fully focused’.

In another semi-final return leg, Gasogi United will be looking for a double over Sorwathe following their 1-0 victory in the first leg last week. A draw will be enough for Marcel Lomami’s side to secure their slot in the topflight league next season.

Should Heroes and Gasogi hold onto their first-leg advantage, they will replace Kirehe and Gicumbi who were relegated to the second tier football last month.
