Taking Caps challenge seriously ... Joey Antipas

CHICKEN Inn boss Joey Antipas says Caps United will not be a walkover when the two teams clash in the first semi-final of the 2015 EasyCall Cup at Barbourfields Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

After winning the league title two weeks back, his second in five years after a similar triumph with Motor Action in 2015, Antipas is well aware Caps will come out guns blazing in order to reach the final.

“They have been playing very well of late and you can see that everybody is motivated,” he said.

“But we also want to end the season on a high with another trophy and so we will fight very hard in this match. The big problem we will face is travelling.

“I have four players in Harare tonight (Friday night) for the Soccer Stars and they have to be back in Bulawayo early morning in time for the match.

“We will see about the arrangements otherwise the best is flying back from Harare.”

Skipper Danny Phiri, goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze, striker Edmore Chirambadare and midfielder Clemence Matawu were due to attend the Soccer Star of the Year banquet in the capital on Friday night.

Caps coach Lloyd Chitembwe will bank on the explosive Dominic Chungwa, who scored 10 goals this season.

“It is going to be a tough match, but I hope everybody will come to the party. Remember we are playing the champions and we cannot take anything for granted,” he said.

“This is a cup match and anything can happen. We want the trophy in as much as they do.”

Doubtful for the match is Stephen Makatuka, who was scheduled to be part of the Soccer Stars event in Harare on Friday night.
