REGARDLESS of CAPS United’s poor form, Highlanders assistant coach Madinda Ndlovu says they will treat the Green Machine with respect.

The two clubs clash in a Chibuku Super Cup quarter-final tie match at Barbourfields on Sunday.

CAPS United are winless in NINE matches.

Their last league victory came against Green Fuel on August 7.

Since then, they have lost five games and drawn four. 

Bosso have won one match in their last five games in the league.

“We respect CAPS United, make no mistake about that one,” said Madinda. “We really respect them. 

“But we are not going to let them walk over our heads just like that. 

“We are going to give them a good fight.”

He added:

“It’s like a money game where we have to give it our all.

“We have to give it our best. We want to assure our fans that we will give it our best. Let’s not dwell on the defeats we have suffered. Let’s look at things game-by-game.

“Let’s look at CAPS United and see how we play against them according to the way we have trained. If our system does not work, then tough luck, we know in football there are three results — a win, a loss and a draw.

“Our priority is to win the game, we will do our best to win the game, we are going to be working hard with the players to make sure we win the game. We are doing our best to lift the boys because at this point in time, they are picking up in terms of morale.”

Highlanders have a number of injury concerns after Calvin Chigonero and Archford Faira picked up injuries in yesterday’s training session.

Captain Ariel Sibanda is out with a foot injury.

Devine Mhindirira, Darlington Mukuli and Godfrey Makaruse are also in the treatment room.
