HARARE – CAPS United will be seeking to redeem themselves when they face relegation threatened Black Rhinos in a Castle Premiership match at the National Sports Stadium Wednesday.

The Green Machine crashed out of the Mbada Diamonds Cup at the semi-finals stage at the weekend, going down 4-2 on penalties to How Mine, so they will be looking to make amends for that failure.

Taurai Mangwiro’s charges still have faint hopes of winning the league title. They are on 45 points, four behind log leaders Dynamos.

With three matches left before the season ends, Mangwiro has emphasised the need to will all their remaining matches.

“We might have lost in the Mbada semi-finals, but I have told the players that we should not to despair because mathematically we still have a chance of winning the championship,” Mangwiro told the Daily News.

“We will be aiming for a win but that does not mean we should take them (Rhinos) lightly. We are not going to be complacent in this match at all.”

Mangwiro says Makepekepe have already achieved something this season but staying within shouting distance of the top sides.

“For this season we have surpassed our targets, we have brought stability to the club and overall our boys performed well,” said Mangwiro.

The Green Machine will be missing the services of defender Arnold Chivheya who is injured, and forward David Rediyoni, who is out due to a family bereavement.

“For this season we have surpassed our targets, we have brought stability to the club and overall our boys performed well,” said Mangwiro.

Makepekepe will however face stiff competition from the soldiers, who will be looking to easy their relegation worries.

Although Rhinos’ form improved since they adopted Rimuka Stadium as their home ground, the army side is still in the relegation zone with 31 points.
