Gamecocks eye Chibuku success

HARARE - Joey Antipas says his side Chicken Inn will take their Chibuku Super Cup first round clash against Hwange seriously.

The Castle Premiership log leaders host the coalminers at Luveve Stadium this afternoon.

After a disappointing 2014 season, the Gamecocks have surprised many this season and find themselves on top of the log with 34 points after 17 games.

Another fine run in the Chibuku Super Cup will give the Bulawayo giants a shot at trying to win the cup double.

“Our preparations have been okay, we have got a full squad to choose from with no injuries,” Antipas told the Daily News yesterday.

“We have to approach this game cautiously. You know cup games are different, if you win you progress and if you lose you are out.

“We just have to go out there and fight for everything. We would want to go and win the cup but in football anything can happen. Hwange have been enjoying good form lately and they would want to spring a surprise.

“So at the end of the day it’s about character and devotion because everyone wants to win. In cup matches, you can’t really rule out teams on the basis of their position on the log table. It does not count really.”

Chicken Inn lost to Hwange 0-1 at the Colliery in the reverse fixture in the league and they are desperate for revenge.

The derby match between Highlanders and How Mine at Barbourfields tomorrow is probably the highlight of the Chibuku Super Cup first round fixtures.
