Chibuku Super Cup: Makepekepe struggle to make the quarter finals

By Lawrence Trusida

CAPS United Coach, Darling Dodo has come under fire after a string of poor results which have seen the Harare giants win one match in eight Chibuku Super Cup encounters.

Coach Darlington Dodo could become the fall guy with the Green Machine facing the real prospect of missing out on the Chibuku Super Cup quarter finals with one win, five draws and two defeats in eight outings.

With only two teams from each group making it to the quarter finals, CAPS who are in third position with eight points, four points behind second placed Harare City need nothing short of a miracle to reach the knockout stage.

Their troubles have been compounded by the fact that their bitter rivals and group leaders, Dynamos are cruising with 20 points.

Makepekepe are also on the unwanted list of teams that have only won once, joining league returnees Bulawayo City and new boys Tenax as well as Manica Diamonds.

To show how the mighty have fallen, CAPS United have only done better than Herentals, Whawha, Bulawayo Chiefs and Triangle who are yet to win a single match.

With two games to go before the group stage comes to an end while a mammoth task against Dynamos lies ahead, head coach Darlington Dodo is a dead man walking.

“We are expected to bring results and we will work so much to achieve that we don’t have a lot of time with games coming up mid-week and weekends,” Dodo says.

CAPS United fans have not forgotten that Dodo was the man who was in charge when their title charge went up in smoke in 2019 with the Green Machine struggling in the home stretch before losing the last match of the season to eventual champions FC Platinum.

Dodo and his men are once again running out of time with other giants, Dynamos, Highlanders, Chicken Inn and the two platinum sides FC and Ngezi having all made it to the knockout stages.

But History has told us that if results don’t come something has got to give.
