CAPS United want to put their campaign back on track when they host Black Rhinos in a Castle Lager Premiership tie at the National Sports Stadium tomorrow.

The Green Machine, who lost 4-0 to Highlanders at Barbourfields last Sunday, have had an inconsistent run. Team manager Luis Maio said they haven’t lost focus.

“The morale was a bit low when we resumed training this week but things are picking up now.

We had a good workout today (yesterday) at the National Sports Stadium and the boys’ spirit was great.

“You can actually tell that the boys are keen to bounce back and turn things around.

“We have been talking to them and we emphasised that our last game is now water under the bridge. Yes we might have lost but if you look at the season, we have played only six games and we have more ahead of us.

“It’s very important how we respond when we face such setbacks. So we are looking forward to something positive against Black Rhinos.

Hopefully our supporters will make us really feel at home.

“At such times, we need to be united as a family and we are calling on our supporters to continue rallying behind the team because we need them badly to help us move forward,” said Maio.

CAPS United were boosted by the return of strikers Tongai Magwendere and Leonard Fiyado.

But there are doubts over the availability of their captain Tapiwa Khumbuyani who suffered an ankle injury in Bulawayo.

Neighbours Dynamos travel to Shabanie Mine on Sunday seeking a rare win in Zvishavane to put behind a turbulent week.

Coach Callisto Pasuwa was this week hoping for the return of Sydney Linyama and Cliff Sekete from injuries.

Former DeMbare coach Sunday Chidzambwa yesterday called for a united front at his team and dismissed speculation that he wanted to return to the club as coach.

“I have passed that stage of coaching Dynamos, I had my chance and I did as well as I could and I always knew that one day I will pass the baton to the younger generation,” said Chidzambwa.

“The younger coaches have done well and need our support and we have to be united if we are to achieve success this year again.”
