AFTER surviving the Dynamos test last week, Caps United pack their bags for Castle Lager Premier Soccer League leaders Triangle hoping to stop Kelvin Kaindu’s runaway machine.

The match unites Kaindu and his former assistant Mark Mathe, who now holds the same position at Caps under Mark Harrison.

After failing to fulfil a match against How Mine last Thursday, Caps returned to Harare and drew 1-1 against Dynamos in a low key Harare derby.

From the proceeds of that match at the National Sports Stadium, Caps were able to cover part of the debts owed to the players which had affected the How Mine.

That episode saw club owner, Twine Phiri spending a week offering profuse apologies to the club fans, league sponsors Delta Beverages and broadcast partner SuperSport in his capacity as chairman of the PSL.

When the dust settled with the loss of three points, the club was hit a $143,000 claim from former directors Lewis Uriri and Tutisani Nhamo, but Phiri is determined to see through the passing storm.

And captain Hardlife Zvirekwi says they have put the How Mine debacle behind them.

“It was a bad episode; we are looking ahead to a good game at Triangle. They are the leaders, they are playing well, but I also thing confidence is high in our camp,” he said Friday.

With George Nyirenda - the scorer against Dynamos - in good form, Ishmael Thindwa and Stephen Makatuka in the team, Caps can expect a good outing in the Lowveld. Maka

Missing from the team is attacking left-back Ronald Pfumbidzai who travelled with the Young Warriors squad for the All Africa Games qualifier against Cameroon on Sunday while Triangle are without Malvern Gaki and Praise Tonha, who are also on the same assignment.

Kaindu is not getting carried away by their good start.

“We have started well and we are happy because we don’t want to end up fighting relegation like last season.

“So if we keep collecting points, the better for us,” he says.
