PREMIER SOCCER returnees Chapungu have welcomed the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League (PSL) mini-break which gives them time to recharge their batteries ahead of the league run-in.
PSL action has been suspended to pave way for the One Wallet semi-final action slated for Mandava Stadium on Saturday and Sunday. The airmen’s coach John Nyikadzino has consistently said that their main target for this season would be to survive the dreaded chop.
The ambition seems unlikely to be dented given their imperious home record where they have managed to avoid defeat the whole season.
The impressive run has seen them being the first team to beat ZPC Kariba (3-0) in addition to beating Dynamos and pumping three unanswered goals against Caps United. Nyikadzino said the current break would allow them to recharge batteries.
“We have some players who have knocks from our previous games and this break will give them some time to recover. We are training as usual and the boys will be ready for action when it resumes,” continued Nyikadzino.
He took time to reflect on their good home run after yesterday’s workout.
“I have always told my players that nobody knows our home ground better than us, so we have to use that to our benefit,” he added.
