CAPS United utility player Eric Manokore says their 2-0 win over Herentals at Nyamhunga on Saturday was a big result for the club built on a foundation of having the right attitude for such a tough assignment.

The Green Machine edged a tough encounter in which both clubs gave as much as they got in the Kariba heat.

“This was a big win for us, the attitude was very positive and we had a fair share of possession which we managed to utilise by creating scoring opportunities,” he said.

“I am happy we managed to take our chances and make them count.

“Defensively, we stayed solid, making it difficult for them to play through the team or penetrate us easily. 

“I am very proud of the team, a big applause to the lads, it’s a job well done.”

He added: 

“Recording our first win of the season is a great feeling. It’s something we knew was coming up but we desperately needed it against Herentals. 

“Such a win paves way for more success as the long season unfolds. It’s a huge confidence booster.”

CAPS United are expected to host their next game in Harare amid indications Rufaro has been partially homologated.

The Green Machine are set to face newcomers Bikita Minerals in their next encounter.

“Our fans should expect more wins and we hope that they will come in their numbers to rally behind the team.

“We understand our games will soon be back in the capital and, for us, it means we should now utilise our home advantage and win all our matches.”
