We also want three points: Chaminuka


CAPS United remain bullish ahead of their decisive clash with log leaders Harare City in their last match of the Castle Lager Premiership football campaign at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday with assistant coach Saul Chaminuka declaring they desperately need the last three points.


“They took the first three points in the season opener and I think it will be fair if we take the last three points of the campaign,” said Chaminuka.

Harare City edged Caps United 1-0 in the opening match of the season and Caps United believe they have to avenge that defeat and collect maximum points which would earn them a top-four finish in the event that FC Platinum, who host army side Buffaloes in another match, falter. The Sunshine City Boys are in pole position in the championship race with 53 points following their emphatic 4-0 victory over Highlanders. They replaced Highlanders at the summit with defending champions Dynamos retaining second spot after being held to a 2-2 draw at Chicken Inn.

The champions remained on 51 points with just one match left before the end of the campaign while Highlanders slipped to third, also on 51 points. Harare City just need a victory of any margin against Caps United to be crowned champions regardless of results elsewhere. Dynamos face relegation fighters Black Mambas while Highlanders have a date against Shabanie Mine.

Chaminuka, however, insists that their target has always been a top-four finish and if they could win against Harare City they could realise their dream of ending the season on a high.

“It’s a situation whereby two teams want the same result. Our target this season has always been a top-four finish so we know we have a chance to achieve that. We are going to take the game to them. It

will not be easy, but I hope it is going to be Caps United. Alphabetically Caps comes first so I think we will come right on Sunday,” said Chaminuka.

FC Platinum on fourth position with 49 points host army side Buffaloes at Mandava Stadium in their last match of the campaign. Caps United trail FC Platinum by one point and are aware a win over Harare City and a stumble by Lloyd Mutasa’s FC Platinum will see them finishing in the top four.
