CAPS United assistant coach Mark Mathe has expressed confidence his experience as coach of Highlanders will help the Green Machine as they seek to collect maximum points against the Bulawayo giants.
Mathe worked with the majority of the current Highlanders players while he was coach before he was fired.
He introduced many of the players to Premier League football and believes that will come in handy.
“You always need an analysis of your opponents,” said the coach.
“You need to gather more information about your opponents and have statistics as well. I think having worked with most of the players at Highlanders it will help.
“It will come in handy but what is important is to stick to our game plan.”
The two teams square off in a Castle Lager premiership tie at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.
Mathe’s boss Lloyd Chitembwe says his players have shown the hunger to succeed in the last their last two matches and believes it will help them as they face Bulawayo giants.
The Caps United coach has picked four points from the last two matches following his appointment to the post.
He drew 0-0 with Buffaloes before beating Hwange 1-0 at the Colliery where very few teams have come out with positive results.
And the Caps United gaffer has praised his charges for the way they have applied themselves since he took over.
