CAPS remain bullish

HARARE - CAPS United captain Tapiwa Kumbuyani is in a bullish mood ahead of their clash against Highlanders and has the Green Machine’s desperation for the three points.

Makepekepe, who are sitting third on the log table, are looking for nothing less than a victory to keep pressure on log leaders Dynamos as they bid for their first championship in nine years.

Taurai Mangwiro’s men have been blowing hot and cold this season but Kumbuyani feels they cannot afford to drop points at this crucial stage of the season.

“This is an important match for us especially that we are aiming to finish in top four. But as you know top can be achieved from number one to four,” Kumbuyani said on the sidelines of his team’s launch of their new mobile application titled, CAPS App.

“We are definitely looking for revenge because it was a painful defeat in Bulawayo. We are still in the running for the title. We need to win our remaining matches and see what happens at the end of the season.

“We are not reading much into their problems. We want to concentrate on our game. We are facing Highlanders and not Kaindu. We are preparing for them and we want to win. 

“If we lose to Highlanders we will be tied on the same points so we are desperately looking for that win. Our preparations have been going on well. Everyone is geared is for the match.”

Makepekepe were humbled 4-0 by the Bulawayo giants in the reverse fixture at Barbourfields Stadium back in May.

Highlanders are in third place with 39 points while CAPS United lie third with 42 points, making their clash an important win for both sides as they seek to in touch with the log leaders Dynamos who are on 44 points.
