Tsipa’s Battle Cry

BIG Caps United striker Leonard Tsipa has called for focus ahead of the Harare derby against bitter rivals Dynamos at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.

By Tafadzwa Ndiraire

Tsipa, who turned 34 on January 25 this year, is a battled hardened player, who has been around at the Green Machine since his teenage days and was part of the all-conquering squad that won back to back league titles in 2004 and 2005 under Charles Mhlauri.

He believes, if they remain focused ahead of the remainder of the campaign, they will end 10 years of waiting to reach the Promised Land.

Tsipa said yesterday, while the Harare derby against Dynamos remained the capital’s flagship fixture, their target was just to win all their remaining matches in the campaign.

The 34 year old striker said he has been telling his team mates not to lose concentration and fight to the bitter end.

“It’s good that we are at the top of the log at this stage. Our confidence keeps growing and the most important thing is for us to remain focused, in the remaining fixtures. We want to try and win all our remaining matches. That’s the target for us. We have the Harare derby against Dynamos on Sunday but to us there is no difference with the other remaining fixtures. The only difference is that we are playing Dynamos first and our focus is on that match. We beat them this season for the first time and they wouldn’t want to lose again. It will not be easy but we will try to collect maximum points. We need to keep winning and we must fight to the end,” said Tsipa.

The Caps United striker who had retired from the game only to be given a chance by former coach Mark Harrison when he decided to return scored in the 3-1 defeat of Border Strikers at Dulivadzimu Stadium on Sunday to take his goal tally to 11 and remains the PSL leading goal scorer.

The win saw the Green Machine leaping to the summit of the league table with 52 points, one ahead of FC Platinum who were edged 2-1 by Harare City on Saturday.

Bulawayo giants Highlanders are in third place with 50 points.

But Tsipa is one player who doesn’t want all the glory to himself. He said while he targets to win the Golden Boot award at the end of the campaign, the team came first.

“Ofcourse, I am targeting to win the Golden Boot award. But the team comes first. I just want to give everything for the team in the remaining matches. It doesn’t matter if I don’t score as long as the team wins. It’s the team that comes first. I have not really set a target of goals for myself, I just want to keep on scoring for the team. We want to keep on winning and hopefully, I will win the Golden Boot,” said Tsipa.

Should Caps United clear hurdles posed by Dynamos, Harare City, Ngezi Platinum and Chapungu they will be crowned champions of Zimbabwean football for the first time in a decade.

    What you posted made a ton of sense. But, consider this, what if you were to create a killer post title?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your
    blog, but suppose you added something to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean Tsipa’s
    Battle Cry – sportbrief is kinda vanilla. You ought to look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they write
    news titles to get people to open the links. You might try
    adding a video or a related pic or two to get readers excited
    about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

    Currently it sounds like Movable Type is the best blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using
    on your blog?
