No mercy for Mauritius, says Gumbo as he reveals Warriors’ game plan

Warriors interim coach Rahman Gumbo says his team will still go for the kill against Mauritius this afternoon despite carrying a 4-0 advantage from the first leg.

The match is a second round encounter of the 2020 Chan Qualifiers and will be played at Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo.

Kick-off is at 3 pm.

Speaking ahead of the match, Gumbo said they will not allow the visitors to make a comeback, and the team is hoping to kill the contest early in the game.

“We are taking it like a new game and we are not thinking about the 4-0 lead that we have. What we need is to kill the game as a contest in the early stages of the match by getting an early goal and dampen their spirits. We want to make them feel like the game is over a few minutes into the match and we have to really show it on the pitch,” the coach, according to Sunday News.

Goals from Nqobizitha Masuku, Never Tigere and a brace by Leeroy Mavhunga gave Zimbabwe victory over the islanders in the first leg.

An aggregate win for the Warriors will see them play either South Africa or Lesotho in the final round of the qualifiers scheduled for September.
