Chicken Inn aim to bounce back

HARARE - Chicken Inn coach Joey Antipas is adamant his team will bounce back to winning ways when they face ZPC Kariba at Gwanzura this afternoon.

The Gamecocks failed to collect maximum points in their previous two games, as they played to a goalless draw against Dynamos before their last weekend’s 2-1 defeat to CAPS United.

The Bulawayo side face another tricky assignment today, Saul Chaminuka’s men, who are yet to taste defeat in this campaign after 14 weeks of action.

However, Antipas believes that his team can halt ZPC‘s unbeaten run and bounce back to winning ways.

“In football there is always a first time, maybe we will be the first team to beat ZPC Kariba this season,” Antipas told the Daily News yesterday.

“We are sure of bouncing back and we need to approach the game with a positive mind.

“We want to win the game, but this will not be easy. We must work harder as you know our opponents will be also looking for three points.”

The former Zimbabwe national football team assistant coach said his boys performed well in their last two games but they only need to correct a few mistakes in their attacking department.

“I think we have worked on our mistakes and we are looking for a positive result in this game,” said Antipas.

The Gamecocks are currently in seventh position on the table with 20 points, seven points behind log leaders Highlanders.

ZPC are going into tomorrow’s match on the back of their morale-boosting victory over Hwange last weekend.

With that win, ZPC moved into fourth position on the Castle Premiership log standings, with 24 points, four points above their opponents.

Artwell Nyamiwa and Limited Chikafa scored the two goals, to carry the Kariba side to their 14th unbeaten game.
