When the psl season began not many gave Caps United the tag of being the team to beat. A bright start has however seen some handing the green machine with the invincibles tag owing to the 5 star performances that have been exhibited by Lloyd Chitembwe’s charges so far.
5 wins and just 1 draw make for interesting reading for Makepekepe which is emerging as the most balanced side in the topflight.
Sitting on 16 points and with a game in hand Caps United will tomorrow have an opportunity of further extending their lead and opening up a 4 point advantage at the summit of the psl standings. In order to go firmly in control the green machine will first have to overpower a stubborn Chapungu side that is capable of stirring an upset.
Caps United has been in no mood for upsets of late and Lloyd Chitembwe will be baying for the airmen’s blood on Thursday. The Caps gaffer will be hoping his side remains solid at the back with Joel Ngodzo and Blessing Sarupinda key figures in the midfield department.
Gabriel Nyoni and Phineas Bamusi are hoping to again light up the national sports stadium with the pacey duo proving a menace to opponents so far this season. A 4 point advantage will give Caps United a cushion thus making their looming battle with Chapungu an encounter of utmost importance.
Ronald Chitiyo who is slowly returning with cameo appearances from the bench will be vital in adding attacking impetus to a side that already looks sceary on paper. After playing the role of super sub in the victory away to Triangle on Sunday “Rooney” will be relishing the prospect of another fine outing as Caps seek to maintain what has been a flying start to the 2019 psl season.
