It’s the big one!…CHITEMBWE WANTS TO EXORCISE GHOST OF LAST SEASON

LLOYD Chitembwe says the events of last season will have no bearing whatsoever in the Harare Derby which returns to its spiritual home at Rufaro on Sunday.

CAPS United lost both league matches, and a Chibuku Super Cup semi-final showdown, to Dynamos last year.

Chitembwe said a lot has changed between last year, when Dynamos dominated them, and now.

“Matches are never the same, like I always say. You look at the team we have this time around.

“It’s different from the team we had last year and there are so many things that come to play in this encounter.

“It is also the reason why it counts to nothing whether you are on or off form.

“So, we don’t want to look much into the past but we are looking forward to this match with a lot of hope and belief that we are in a very good space to win this game.”

Makepekepe have won two straight games for the first time since October, last year, when dis

patching Yadah 1-0 last week, right in the back of a 3-0 humbling of Hwange.

“Like I said, we are enjoying ourselves as a team right now and we just hope to carry the same form into the Harare.

“We know fully that games of this magnitude can tear away the form books and the like but it’s always important to get in there at the back of good performances.

“It’s going to be tough but the match will also be good for both teams and both sets of fans as the fixture returns to Rufaro after a long time.

“The ambience brought in by the fans’ closeness to the pitch will be a huge factor as well.”

He added:

“Obviously, we know the size of the task. It’s not an easy task. But all the same games are played to be won.

“This is the thinking in preparing for this game.

“The motivation comes from the fact that this fixture has always been big for both teams.

“Both sets of players look to this fixture with a lot of hope because so many good things come out of it.”

He added:

“This is the idea and for us games between CAPS United and Dynamos have always been special because we play twice in the league in one season.

“If you look at it, those games are usually the biggest of clashes because they are able to generate interest from different people in the country.

“That shows the level at which these teams are regarded. And, as a coach, to be part of that narrative gives a lot of satisfaction more so if the team goes on to do well.”
