Caps target top eight finish



In the past two seasons CAPS United have failed to match their fans’ expectations in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League.

Given their mediocre displays, the once feared Green Machine have publicly set themselves a modest target of finishing in the top eight of the standings in the upcoming campaign.

Caretaker coach Mkhupali Masuku feels a measured approach will suit his charges. However, Masuku maintains his side will approach every game with a winning mentality.

He is also confident he has the necessary players at his disposal to compete effectively this season, and is buoyed by their preparations to date.

“We have assembled a very good team,” said Masuku.

“The players in the team are looking good and we all have one goal for the team this season. We want to finish in the top eight. That’s our main target. This doesn’t mean we won’t have a go at the league title. We will be fighting for all the trophies on offer and who knows along the way we can win something and also finish in top eight,” concluded Masuku.

Caps United, who are based in Harare, finished eighth on the top tier table last term with 39 points – a mammoth 30 points adrift of back-to-back champions Dynamos.
