CHICKEN Inn coach Joey Antipas says his side is now “almost” ready to host South African side Mamelodi Sundowns in a Caf Confederations Cup preliminary round, first leg match at Luveve Stadium on Saturday.

The reigning champions are back from Zambian where they took part in a four-team invitational tournament in which they failed to win a single match.

They drew 2-2 with Zanaco, lost 3-1 to Tanzanian side Zanaco and fell 2-0 to Zesco.

Antipas came back lamenting his defence which conceded seven goals in three games.

But the veteran coach said they were working on their defensive shortcomings and are close to perfection to host Sundowns.

“We are almost there and by the end of the week we would be 100 percent ready to play Sundowns. We have been worried by our defence but we have been working on that,” Antipas said.

“The rate with which we were conceding goals in Zambia is very worrying. But we have been working very hard to correct that. I know we will not have it easy against Sundowns.

"They are an experienced team in African football and we have to be very strong when we face them. It is a very big game for us and we are looking for a positive result so that when we visit them it will be easy for us there.”

But there are doubts over the availability of Captain Danny Phiri who missed the Chan tournament through injury.

While he has started training, Phiri however remains a fitness concern for Antipas.
