CAPS Utd quartet back

HARARE - CAPS United skipper Hardlife Zvirekwi, goalkeeper Edmore Sibanda, defender Dennis Dauda and midfielder Tafadzwa Rusike have all resumed training.

The quartet is in contention for the Green Machine’s trip to Tunisia to face Al-Ahli Tripoli in the African Champions League on Wednesday.

The Green Machine have been ravaged by injuries at a time they are faced by a hectic schedule of fighting on two fronts.

CAPS United assistant coach Tostao Kwashi appeared in high spirits yesterday down-playing the injuries and chose to speak on the task at hand.

“Right, I’m sorry I don’t want to talk about injuries, I think we have overplayed the issue of injuries. I just want talk about the guys, who will go and fight the battle for the club as well as the country,” Kashi said.

“We have a healthy squad. The onus is on the players to do well and shine whenever they are called to do duty.

“It’s all about team work, each and every player in our team is very important. All those who are going to be called upon must work hard.”

CAPS United are coming from a 3-0 morale boosting win over lowly Bantu Rovers on Tuesday and need to beat Tripoli next Wednesday to keep alive their hopes of a place in the knockout stages.

In their home game against, the Libyan side, Makepekepe lost 2-4 two weeks ago but Kwashi is not concerned with that result.

“We are ready for the game. A lot is at stake and every member of the team knows that they have got a role to play. We have been working hard,” Kwashi said.

“We are always positive, we approach the games with a positive mind and we are not under any pressure our hope is that we come out with a good result.

“We are relaxed and not giving ourselves any pressure.”
