AMBITIOUS Bulawayo Chiefs are confident of lifting the Chibuku Super Cup when they face an equally determined Herentals in a rare cup final set for Barbourfields stadium this Sunday.
It is a final which no one predicted when the draw was conducted earlier this year, but as they say, “fortune favours the brave.”
This was summed up by the spokesperson of the newly established Bulawayo Chiefs Supporters Association Prosper Phiri who confirmed that their prime target is to lift the trophy.
“The team has done so well in the league and the cup. We need to finish off the season by lifting the trophy hence we are urging football fans to invade BF for a football treat. I know a lot of people are saying they are not big teams, but if you check well the two teams are in the final because of the hard work,” he said.
Even football fans from the traditional big guns are eagerly awaiting the final despite the absence of their teams.
Bulawayo Chiefs have impressed various quarters with Football Analyst Manager Chigondo convinced they stand a good chance of lifting the coveted trophy.
“I foresee a potential final which can even go to the lottery, but Bulawayo Chiefs stand a good chance as the local crowd will rally behind them,” noted Chigodo.
Despite being a cup game where form counts for nothing, Bulawayo Chiefs are heading into the final on the back of a 2-1 league victory over Yadah, while the students were not at their usual best when they suffered a 2-nil defeat to ZPC Kariba at Nyamhunga stadium.
