We will play an attacking game- Motor Action Coach Joey Antipas
Motor Action coach Joey Antipas believes that an outright attacking game will settle matters when his ‘Mighty Bulls’ of Zimbabwe battle it out with bottom placed South African premiership outfit Black Leopards in Harare this weekend.
Motor action picked up an away goal when the two sides settled for a 1-1 draw in the first leg encounter of the Orange CAF Confederation Cup in Pholokwane a fortnight ago.
Cafonline: Joey you stand a good chance to progress to the next stage of the Confederations cup, what is your game plan for the clash at Rufaro Stadium?
Joey Antipas: We will try and utilize home advantage and play an attacking game. We need to go out there and get an early goal. We cannot afford to sit back but that does not mean we will be reckless and take great risk. If we do not get an early goal we will be patient until the right time for the goal.
Cafonline: Your opponents are at the bottom of the South African premiership and have really struggled in the early stages of the season does that give your side confidence?
Joey Antipas: No, I would not say that. Black Leopards are a good outfit. They played very well at the Peter Makoba Stadium. We will give them the respect they deserve and at the end of the day it will come down to a one on one situation on the pitch.
Cafonline: Is your team in good shape and do you have any injury worries?
Joey Antipas: Everyone is in good shape except for Godfrey Moyo who picked up a knock whilst doing duty for the Warriors against Burundi. He picked up the injury before the national game and has not fully recovered.
Cafonline: TP Mazembe knocked you out of the Champions league 2 years ago just how different is the experience of playing in the Confederations Cup?
Joey Antipas: The situation is pretty much the same it’s all about playing in the African Safari. The difference might be that the teams that play in the Champions league are at a higher level since they won the domestic championships. But it’s equally great to be in the Confederations cup and working to grow our club.
Cafonline: Just how much does this cup mean to you and the club?
Joey Antipas: If we do well in the Confederation Cup it will put the club on the map, it’s great to for the players and for us as a technical team. The main thing is that we want to do well in the tournament.
