HIGHLANDERS coach Pieter de Jongh says he has a lot experience with cup finals ahead of their clash with Ngezi Platinum in the Chibuku Super Cup final tomorrow at Barbourfields.
De Jongh says he knows the magnitude of cup finals and is preparing his boys for a positive result.
“I will not be surprised, I have played various cup finals, the experience is even seen from my records in International Cup references when I was still coaching in the Kenyan Premier League,” said de Jongh.
The Dutch tactician said the focus and determination that helped them reach the final is still within the team.
“I’m confident that the boys are going to perform as expected to capitalise at every chance created,” he said.
Bosso are going into the match buoyed by the duo of captain Ariel Sibanda and Prince Dube being named among the soccer stars for the 2019 season.
“We have quite a number of experienced players in the team hence we have an equal opportunity of being crowned the Chibuku Super Cup winners,” said de Jongh.
He, however, knows the threats posed by Ngezi and will go into the match with a cautious approach.
“A final is always a final, there is a 50/50 chance of winning because opponents also come prepared for such battles in particular Ngezi Platinum,” added De Jongh.
