Harare City aim at Chapungu

HARARE - Struggling Harare City hope to get their season back on track when they to face bottom side Chapungu at Ascot Stadium this afternoon.

The Sunshine Boys have managed only one win from eight matches to find themselves in the relegation zone.

On Wednesday, City were ponderous as they played out a goalless draw with Highlanders at the National Sports Stadium.

The results have put pressure on coach Mike Madzivanyika with speculation increasing that the club might hire a new coach.

However, Madzivanyika is not concerned with the speculation regarding his position and is purely focused on the Chapungu game.

“It’s just another game. We have since put behind our struggles behind us and focusing on our next assignment which is Chapungu,” Madzivanyika told the Daily News.

“We know what we need to do. It’s only the goals that has not been coming otherwise we are not playing badly. We hope good things will start to roll soon starting with this game against Chapungu.”

Madzivanyika reckons that despite Chapungu being on the bottom of the table, they will be a tricky opponent at Ascot.

“Tomorrow’s (today) game is also going to be no tougher than any other game and we just know it is going to be very important for us,” he said.

“We need to work hard if we are to take home the three points. We have been telling the boys to go and fight for those three points. The good thing is that the boys are willing to do well so we are yeah, we are positive of maximum points.”

Chapungu, on the other hand are desperate for maximum points as they are without a win their opening eight matches of the season.

The Air Force of Zimbabwe side currently sit at the bottom of the table with four points which will make them desperate to win today’s game against another side that is also having a difficult season.
