CHICKEN INN coach Joey Antipas has hailed their Independence Cup triumph as a major psychological boost for their league campaign.
Obadiah Tarumbwa and Mitchelle Katsvairo were on target to help Chicken Inn come from behind and beat Highlanders in the final at the National Sports Stadium.
Highlanders had surged ahead through Bruce Kangwa’s goal before Chicken Inn turned the tables down to romp to victory.
It was Chicken Inn’s first piece of silverware of 2016 as they are also under spotlight to defend the league title.
They host How Mine on Saturday in their next league match which would be another Bulawayo derby.
“Well done to my boys for beating Highlanders. They showed some resilience to come from a goal down and win the match,” Antipas said. “It is another trophy in the cabinet for us and it feels good to win it at the start of the season. It is a good sign that we can achieve more this year. The boys are super happy and they will go in our next match high in confidence. It is good to have players who believe in themselves.”
Antipas and his men host How Mine on the backdrop of an unbeaten run in their title defence so far after winning their two league matches.
By winning the Independence Cup, it was revenge for Chicken Inn on Highlanders who denied them a double last season by beating them in the final of the NetOne Easycall Cup.Advertisement
