Struggling Douglas Warriors side have vowed to stop Caps United’s juggernaut when the two teams meet in a Premier Soccer League match at Gwanzura Stadium Wednesday.
Caps, under the guidance of new head coach Moses “Bambo” Chunga, who took over from Lloyd Chitembwe have managed to win their last three PSL games.
However, Beaven Gwamure, the Douglas Warriors coach said the “Green Machine’s” day is coming.
“With all respect, Caps united is playing well at the moment and have been winning matches but in Shona there is a saying chinobhururuka chinomhara (everything that goes up will come crashing down),” said Gwamure.
Gwamure said although he is grateful about the support rendered to his team by Caps united fans when the Marondera based team held Dynamos to a 1-1 draw at Rufaro two weeks ago, that love will be lost when the teams line against each other today.
“Their (Caps) fans steered us in the game against Dynamos but now they will be the ones on the receiving end. If they come thinking that we will give them the game on a silver platter, then they will be shocked,” said Gwamure.
Douglas Warriors who are lying in 11th position with 16 points, a point away from relegation should start picking up points if they are to avoid relegation, and Gwamure concurred.
“We cannot be thinking of relegation at the moment, we still have a lot of games to play but at the same time we need to start collecting maximum points, starting tomorrow (today).
Douglas Warriors, who started the season well, beating log leaders Motor Action in the process, have suddenly hit a bad patch and have managed a single point in their last six outings.
On the other hand, their rivals today Caps united have been in top form recently, recording maximum points since Bambo took charge.
The green machine, fifth on the log with 25 points will leap frog to position three with a win today.
It will be interesting though to see how Chunga will react to the defeat inflicted to his team by bitter rivals Highlanders in the Zaoga Silver Jubilee Charity Shield semi-final last Sunday.
