Kaindu under the spotlight

HARARE - Highlanders coach Kelvin Kaindu faces a tough test to help save his job at the end of the season when his side clash with ZPC Kariba in the Castle premiership this afternoon.

The Bulawayo giants must beat Saul Chaminuka’s men at Hartsfield Rugby Ground to maintain the pressure on log leaders Dynamos.

Following their recent stuttering performance in the league, Kaindu was given an ultimatum to win the championship or else face the axe at the end of the season.

Bosso go into this match in third place on the log four points behind DeMbare and two behind ZPC with seven games to go before the season ends.

Highlanders are however, off form going into today’s match as they have failed to win in their last two matches.

Kaindu is confident that his team will bounce back to winning ways and they will have a strong ay in the destiny of the 2014 championship.

“For the title race, I think there are still many games to play and we still have the chances to win the title,” Kaindu said earlier this week.

“At this stage no one can predict the champions as for us we are not giving up we will continue fighting till the last day of the season.

“We still need to fight on and I told my boys that we need to be more focused at this stage of the season.

“I still have faith in these players. We have to work on my player’s mentality so that they will remain focused, after the defeat, ‘I said this is not the end of the world as we still have the chance to claw back and win the title’.”

The Zambian said he is not reading much into ZPC’s form and believed that a win against the Kariba-based side will kick start their revival.

“We need to work hard in order to get a positive result on Sunday (today). ZPC Kariba is a good team so we are not going to underrate them but we are not going to put ourselves under pressure, we will try to play our normal game,” he said.

“We just need to approach the game with positive mind and get a result, we are not under pressure, in a game of football sometimes results will not come but there is need to remain hopeful.

ZPC will come into this match high on confidence and will be hoping to maintain pressure on DeMbare.

Chaminuka’s charges are currently on second position on the log standing only two points behind log leaders.
