Caps coach wary of How Mine

CAPS United face PSL sanctions after they failed to fulfil their away clash against How Mine but the club insists they will turn up for Easter Monday’s derby against Dynamos.

Despite travelling to Bulawayo for the match on Thursday, Caps United players refused to take to the pitch in protest over outstanding salaries, winning bonuses and signing-on fees.

United recently parted ways with their new sponsors following a contractual misunderstanding.

The incident will see How Mine being handed three points without kicking the ball while United would be slapped with a fine by the PSL according to the league’s standing rules.

“We will only act after receiving the match commissioner’s report. We are waiting for it to be handed to us so we cannot say anything about the matter at the moment,” said PSL chief executive officer Kenny Ndebele.

Caps boycott could disturb their campaign which they kicked off on a bright note with wins in their first two matches in which they beat WhaWha 2-1 away before a 1-0 home victory over FC Platinum.

Source said the players have insisted on a play as you earn arrangement and will likely demand part of their pay before games.

Club president Twine Phiri said Monday’s showdown against Dynamos would go ahead.

“I can assure everyone that the game against Dynamos is on, we will be there,” said Phiri after meetings with the players.

Coach Mark Harrison said they had put last Thursday’s events behind them and were ready for Dynamos.

“What happened on Thursday was unfortunate and unfortunate things happen in life. But that is history now, we have got to put that aside,” he said.

“The club has to move forward and hopefully we can take the positives out of the negative. We have to wake up, as long as we stay together we can do it, unity is key.

“I have been speaking to players individually and as a group, they are all committed to play for Caps United.”

Meanwhile, in other games Flame Lily take on How Mine at Gwanzura in Harare on Sunday while on Monday Highlanders travel to Mutarea for a date with Highlanders.
