WITH chances of winning the domestic championship now very slim, ZPC Kariba coach Sunday “Mhofu” Chidzambwa says he is now shifting his attention to the Chibuku Super Cup.
Chidzambwa’s men host Shabanie Mine at Nyamhunga in the first round this weekend. “We are out of the league championship and the Chibuku Super Cup is the only silverware left and at the end it has a number of benefits, especially in terms of remuneration,” reckons Chidzambwa.
“We have worked hard and we must win this encounter at all cost. “We have to score goals and make sure we prevail against Shabanie Mine although I am fully aware that it will not be an easy game.
“There is hope that things will change for the better this weekend.’’ The veteran coach said his charges should use home advantage.
“I feel the team is ready and they know what to expect when it comes to such games. We hope it will be a good game and we are appealing to our fans to back us this weekend.
“We are playing at home and that should be an advantage to us. They are our player number 12. “If you look at the way we play, we are not that bad and it’s only that we haven’t been scoring goals to win games,’’ he said. In the absence of Francisco Zekumbawire and Daniel Chakupe, who are both injured, Raphael Manuvire and Leonard Fiyado are favourites to lead the attack.
At the back, experienced defender and utility rock Tawanda Nyamandwe, Arnold Chivheya and Sylvester Appiah are expected to provide cover for goalkeeper Tendai Hove.
