Whawha eye CAPS upset

GWERU - Whawha technical adviser Lloyd Mutasa says he is expecting nothing short of victory in tomorrow’s match against Castle Premiership giants CAPS United at Ascot Stadium.

Mutasa, a classy midfielder during his playing days with Tanganda and Dynamos, was speaking at the Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services  side team kit presentation at the Gweru Press Club on Thursday.

Whawha will be playing their first match in the top flight league after winning the Zifa Central Region Division One League championship ahead of second-placed Midlands States University last season.

“We expect to win all the games and beat the so-called big teams. This is exactly why Whawha was promoted into the big league,” a bullish Mutasa said.

The former FC Platinum and Dynamos coach said his team’s promotion into the league was no fluke and they were indeed a punch above their weight against the so-called “big teams”.

Whawha captain Blessed Chikuku said they will not be overwhelmed by the occasion and will make life difficult for their more illustrious opponents.

“We have enough arsenal to cause an upset on Sunday. We will give CAPS a good run for their money,” Chikuku said.

Whawha, who are affectionately known as Chekeraipasi by their fans, will be banking on players such as Albert Matewu, Khama Chidzero and Takudzwa Jukulile the son of coach Luke Petros Jukulile to prove their mettle in the Premiership.

While the Gweru-based side are confident of springing an upset tomorrow, CAPS will be no pushovers.

The Green Machine looks a rejuvenated side under Englishman Mark Harrison, who replaced Taurai Mangwiro.

United will look for goals from prodigal son Leonard Tsipa, and former Dynamos favourite Roderick Mutuma, while former Shabanie goalkeeper Victor Twaliki is expected to guard goal ahead of returning Itai Chiwara.
