Bulls face Dynamos

-

Caf Confederation Cup representatives Motor Action will play Dynamos in a practice match tomorrow and another at the weekend as they wrap up their preparations before their trip to South Africa.

They are expected to leave next Thursday for Limpopo where they take on South African Premiership side Black Leopards in the first leg, preliminary round of the continent’s second-tier club football competition.

The 2010 league champions have played Bulawayo sides Chicken Inn and Quelaton in the last two weeks and coach Joey Antipas is happy with the progress and commitment shown by the players.

“So far so good. I have seen some positives from the two matches and what is vital is to keep working on the positives. The combinations are coming in very well — the guys are competing and working hard and it’s actually a good headache,” Antipas said yesterday.

The Mighty Bulls lost their talisman Allen Gahadzikwa to FC Platinum, but have managed to lure the Highfield United pair of Isaac Madziva and Protasho Kabwe.

They also have experienced goalkeeper Marlon Jani, Isaac Masame, Masimba Mambare, Enasio Perezo and Edward Tembo. Other faces in the Motor Action line-up are Misheck Mburayi (former Highlanders), Charles Mutero (Shooting Stars), Jonathan Chitereki (Shabanie), Yves Ebabali (Kiglon), Dominic Mukandi (Monomotapa) and Morris Kadzola (Chicken Inn).

Black Leopards, who have former Warriors coach Sunday Chidzambwa in their technical department, are confident of sailing past the Mighty Bulls though they are languishing in the relegation zone in the SA top-flight. The prospect of playing in the Champions League does not worry coach Vladislav Heric.

“Yes, the team is focused and ready. We are approaching the competition like any other game. The league has slotted these fixtures into our schedule nicely,” Heric was quoted as saying in the SA media.

“Training has been at high intensity to get the players’ fitness and conditioning back after the December break and to get ready for the busy schedule ahead. We’ve also been playing a lot of practice matches to work out our best combinations,” said Heric.
