WHAWHA head coach, Luke Petros, says he wants to see consistency from his men in the second half of the Castle Lager Premiership campaign.

They are set to host Manica Diamonds at Ascot on Sunday.

Petros’ men brewed up a shocker, in their last game, when they beat Benjani Mwaruwari’s Ngezi Platinum 1-0 at Ascot.

They also thrashed leaders Chicken Inn 3-0 at the same venue.

“We are preparing very well and the guys are ready for the match,” said the former Warriors forward. “We have been covering ground, trying to remove the rust amongst our boys.

“Our expectation will be to win the match against Manica. 

“They did their part in the first game we played in Mutare and we also want to make sure we win our match at home.”

He added:

“Looking at our last previous encounter, we opened a lot of spaces in the midfield and we were very vulnerable in defence.

“It was the first game of the season and the guys couldn’t control the game, according to our plan, and this week we are trying to be more solid and not to allow them to have much space on the ball.

“The mood in the camp is quite okay, the guys are daring to go and give it their best.”

He urged his players to draw confidence from their win against Ngezi Platinum.

“Looking at the game we played against Ngezi before the two-week break, it was a good game, which motivated the youngsters,” he said.

“It built the spirit in them that games can be won, especially at home. 

“The spirit of winning we are now seeing in them is good for the team as we seek to grab results at any possible opportunity.

“The game against Ngezi gave us the firepower we needed going forward.”

Whawha will be without the services of two of their key players.

“We have Ronwell Matutu, who got injured in the match against CAPS at the National Sports Stadium, and Michael Sibanda, who also got injured when we were playing against ZPC.

“The boys are now having light training.

“We are hoping the fans will come in numbers to cheer us up. The youngsters are trying to lift the game and the fans are appreciating it.

“We hope to see more numbers, in terms of the fans, as this will motivate the youngsters.”
