BULAWAYO Chiefs forward Obriel Chirinda is confident they will get the better of their city rivals Highlanders when the two clubs clash in a Chibuku Super first round tie at Barbourfields on Sunday.

Chirinda, who is Bulawayo Chiefs man of the moment and is also the 2023 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League leading top goal scorer with nine goals to his name, told his club’s official social media page yesterday that his team is targeting to retain the Chibuku Super Cup and proceed to represent the country at the CAF Confederations Cup contest in 2024.

“We are playing Highlanders in the Chibuku Super Cup first round and we are the defending champions and that gives us motivation and playing Highlanders is in itself good motivation to beat them,” he said.

Interestingly, the red-hot Chirinda was being pursued by Bosso during last month’s mid-season transfer window.

On Sunday, Highlanders will meet an unpredictable Amakhosi Amahle who booted them out of the Chibuku Super Cup last year on a 1-0 scoreline courtesy of a goal by their skipper Malvin Mkolo.

Chirinda saw red after a second bookable offence two minutes before full time when they handed Bosso their Chibuku marching orders.

Chiefs went on to lift the silverware, their first major trophy in the topflight league after they edged Herentals College 1-0 through an Arthur Musiyiwa strike in a final that was played at Barbourfields Stadium.

Musiyiwa is now in the books of Harare giants Dynamos.
