CAPS United defender Munyaradzi Kunyarimwe says they need to win against his former against ZPC Kariba on Sunday to remain on track of qualifying for the next stage of the Chibuku Super Cup.
The two teams clash at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.
Kunyarimwe started for Makepekepe against Harare City and Yadah and is looking forward to have another dance on Sunday.
“I am looking forward to play against ZPC Kariba. It’s always tough playing against your former team but it’s part of football. In football you are likely to change teams and facing your former teams is normal and a thing we live with as players. The football fraternity is aware of it and has endorsed it from the past.
“Going into these matches as a team we know we have to progress at all cost. These matches are not dead rubber and ZPC Kariba are obviously motivated facing a big team,” said Kunyarimwe.
He said it is unfortunate they are playing behind closed doors due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“It’s unfortunate we are playing in the absence of our fans. Fans are always the inspiration that keeps us going in good and bad times. It’s unfortunate we are in a bad period and we have to keep on adhering to regulations to keep ourselves safe. The situation is beyond our control. I would gladly welcome back the return of fans anytime as they are the 12th man,” he said.
CAPS are currently second on the table with six points, two points behind their bitter rivals Dynamos and are sharing the same points with Harare City.
ZPC Kariba are on fourth with four points.
