Kapini confident that fortunes will revive

Amazulu captain Tapuwa Kapini is confident that the team can still finish in the top eight, despite a shaky start to the 2011/12 Absa Premiership season.

The Warriors goal-minder said Usuthu were ready for the resumption of the campaign, in which they want to make up for a disappointing first half that left them languishing at 10th position in the 16-team log.

“I am enjoying 2012 and I hope it will be a productive year,” said the former Highlanders goal-minder.

“I am back in camp and we are doing great and working hard. We cannot wait for the first game of the second round and I think if we can just focus, we can finish in the top eight.”

Amazulu resume their campaign with a tricky home fixture against log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on February 15. A top eight finish will earn them a berth in the lucrative MTN8 tournament.

Kapini’s move from platinum Stars to Amazulu, where he was appointed captain shortly after joining, coincided with the side’s early poor form that eventually cost highly-rated coach Manqoba Mnqgithi his job. The appointment of Roger Palmgreen to the helm has helped revive their fortunes.
