TRIANGLE coach Taurai Mangwiro says they need to stay focused ahead of their CAF Confederation Cup second leg encounter against Rukinzo in Bunjumbura tomorrow.
Sugar Sugar boys thrashed the Burundians 5-0 in the first leg at Barbourfields and Mangwiro is looking forward to complete the mission.
“Obviously we need to go there and finish the job and make sure that we proceed to the next round.
“The boys just have to stay focused and forget the five goal advantage we have and work towards proceeding to the next round. They are very aware of what is at stake, the game is in our hands.
“Of course we are playing away from home and we should not be intimidated by that. And it’s not about playing home or away, in football there are no underdogs, it can go either way, that’s why I’m urging my players to be focused.
“We just have to finish the job there and to make sure that we do not concede any goals there.
“We are in high spirits and also confident that we are going to win this match in Burundi,” said Mangwiro.
The Triangle gaffer also spoke of the feared fatigue saying he is rotating his players.
“There are going to be chances that is why I travelled with a strong team because they all know our type of play.
“Some of the players that featured on our game against Platinum will likely not to start and will make use of other players and give our regulars some time to rest.”
Mangwiro said there are no serious injuries to worry about.
“Our captain Ralph Kawondera and Praise Tonha have minor injuries that we are assessing but they are part of the travelling team.
“By Saturday I will be sure either they will be fit to play or not,” he said.
“What I want as Triangle is to win this match and proceed to the next round and make our fans in Zimbabwe proud.”
