Chicken Inn goalie Donovan Bernard says he is ready for his former paymasters Ngezi Platinum ahead of the Chibuku Super Cup quarter-final match slated for Saturday.

Benard has been in excellent form which has seen him conceding only twice since the beginning of the competition.

Chances of a big upset are not out of the question as both sides exhibited notable ability in the group stages which is evidenced with the Gamecocks unbeaten run while Madamburo lost once on their way to the quarter-finals.

“It is always good to play against a former team, not that I have a point to prove but it is the reunion with old friends that makes the encounter interesting. I enjoyed my one season stay at Ngezi Platinum, it was one of my best seasons in my career.

“We are playing a cup game and it is a quarter-final match. We are not preparing something special for them. We are doing our routines at normal pace. It is just like playing against any other team.

“Our primary target was to make it to the quarter finals and now that this is where we are, we have shifted the focus to the final. We are going to work hard to achieve our objective and I believe we have a strong solid team which can push to the limits.

“The coach has emphasized team spirit and the boys have taken heed of the coach’s call and the reward has been positive results,” said Bernard.

He added that he is not worried about Ngezi Platinum’s scoring abilities.

“Yes, they have been scoring good goals and it is important to know that they have been also conceding. We are not digging much into them and I am not worried about their capabilities.

“I am more concerned about the areas which we need to improve as a team. Lately, we have been playing collectively and the determination has been overwhelming and we are fully aware of the significance of progressing and making it to the final. That is our major concern,” he said.
